Made a start.....

In the spirit of 'doing things' as mentioned in my previous post,  in the last week I have been out for a mexican meal with one friend  and I have also been to the cinema with another .....sort of enjoyed both, although truth be told mexican food is not to my taste....and the waiter putting a large sombrero on my head at one point was just not as fun as all the other sombrero wearing diners found it to be ....they, and my friend,  seemed to be happy with the hat thing going on and I realised that I should just avoid certain social situations....I'm not hard wired that way...maybe being sober (I was driving so had no choice) was the mistake, and perhaps if I'd had more than one drink I would have laughed and smiled and worn the fucking hat with joy, instead of removing it almost instantly..........

The baked potato I had this evening (slathered in lurpak) was much more me......I am happy with my boring taste in food and care not a jot if carbohydrate overload is boring to everyone else..it is my go to meal and I love it. Hatless.

 I did enjoy the film (Three billboards outside Ebbing Missouri) and the gin cocktail I had with my meal. Go me.

I have never seen the appeal of Mexican food, and if some twit tried to put a sombrero on my head..... I'd leave.

I loved Rick Stein' s recent prog on his road trip to Mexico but I thought most of the food on it looked rather heavy on the creamy sauces and spices.Nice colours in Mexico though! I'm laid up today again. Yet another dose of the lurgy and a UTI just for good measure. Well done on your ventures out. I want to see 'Phantom Thread', Daniel Day Lewis's new film. Maybe next week.x

This post should have been photo-illustrated with you in your sombrero! That would have afforded me a good belly laugh! Glad you also enjoyed "Three Billboards".

We went to see "The Post" which is the first time we have been to the Multiplex since "Skyfall". Much louder and noisier than I remember, and I secretly resolved to see all films on DVD or at the Arts Centre henceforth.

27.

Just for now.
