Last night after work, I met up with a friend from my London days who was in town with the parish choir he sings with. They were doing the services at St Mary's (the choir being on post Easter break). So a very decent Italian meal in Bar Roma ensued: carapaccio of beef, risotto Della Oeste and Cassata Sicilliana (or ice cream in real speak!) for me, antipasti (that's cold meat in Scotland), lamb cutlets in Garlic and rosemary (the wife hates both lamb and garlic, so a wee treat whilst off the matrimonial leash!) and tiramisu for Tim! A nice guy (for a Tory) and a Yorkie, we ganged up together when working with the effete Southerners in Ealing.
This morning was an enjoyable Parish Mass at St Ninian's Comely Bank (covering for the Encumbrance), then up to Corstorphine, only to find my charge is oot with his family and there is hee-haw to do until he returns. Sunbathing with a coffee beckons!
