... a bit Suffolk
|fr 17 Dec|
Brilliant! ... a juggler juggled, Tinker Bell waited tables in The Crown, not surprisingly Carley & Webb won the best dressed window, equally not surprisingly the donkey got a bit nervous, FAYAP sold out of soup ... twice, the queue for the burger stall just kept getting longer, a house fire was unintentional added excitement, the morris sided ... erhm ... sided, Church Street (where most of the stalls were) heaved, the Dame worked his socks off, SGR Black Thunder parked on the hill ... and that was that ... it parked on the hill .. maybe they think we don't have cars in Framlingham, Barclays failed to give away much mulled wine as people struggled to understand the concept of a bank giving something away ... Brilliant!!

Framlingham Station des' dinners 47
Lunchers were Fi with Stella (fresh from the hairdresser), Katherine (who admitted she had been getting the emails), Mark (who had to get back to work), Hugh, Mrs Hugh, Hugh's daughter, Spadge, NaTCH, Goddess Steph (who had managed to gild her divinity with copper) and Max, Vernon who used to go in the Vic, Vernon who used to go in the Vic's daughter, The Brewer, and Matt not in a hat. Inexplicably by some process of osmosis a table had been reserved for us, Esther managed to keep track of the multiple bills, with Mike in the kitchen the food was of course excellent if elegantly restrained in quantity, Sadie waited tables and was charming. Conversation included the car chase in Bullit, the Compost Association Conference and ESB's proposed St Valentine's beer Jolly Roger. (last visit subsequent lunch previous lunch)

A little girl was amazed and intrigued by Felix, the volunteer firemen looked ill at ease being photographed, Chairperson Steph managed to ignite the Framlingham Christmas Tree lights by pressing two buttons at once whilst not thinking of the word "rhinoceros" ... allegedly, the The Ipswich Hospital Band played, a large crowd sang carols, and free soup was distributed ... and what's more the soup was carrot and coriander not tomato!

Framlingham Station des' dinners 31
A dozen or so lunching ladies having a birthday party rather swamped Suzanna and NaTCH and what's more chef Carol was off sick so no liver casserole but new landlady Kate, in hyperdrive mode, produced enjoyable Cottage and Chicken Pies and as usual the Vic was on song. Conversation included "passive anger" and the paucity of interesting gigs at the moment. AfAR from Spadge (shipping Ginettas to the US), Hugh (actually in Ireland this time), and John B (nobody told him). (last visit ↓ subsequent lunch previous lunch)

Prompt were Las, NaTCH and birthday boy Malcolm. A lot late was John B and a little late was Andy who explained it was because he wasn't wearing a watch. Fortunately Malcolm was sufficiently distracted by his birthday candles and the wonderful flower arrangement from Steph that there was no further discussion of watches. Inevitably there was discussion of the unbelievable events in the USA but impressively Andy is playing a football match in Moscow! Good food! Good beer! AfAR from Spadge (testing at Mallory Park).

What a success! Despite petrol problems attendees were John B, Malcolm, NaTCH, Spadge, and Andy - the latter two en velo! Apologies for absence from John FH who couldn't find any diesel for his Landrover. John B and Malcolm whizzed off promptly to be on tv but the rest of made us a useful contribution to the sum of human happiness by putting the world to rights.
