On Thursday, after a slow start with a late breakfast, Jean, Ron and I went out to do some grocery shopping.

After Jo finished work at 1:30, she came over to pick up Jean and I to take us out for dumplings at Wing Yip in Purley. This is a very big restaurant, with a grocery store beside it. It specialises in dumplings like our yum cha, which they sell until 3pm, and they also have an a la carte menu. As it was a very late lunch, we bought a soup home for our tea that night.

Friday morning was spent in the house, playing with Oscar the one-eyed cat and watching birds in the garden and squirrel outside the conservatory.

As it was my final day on Friday, we decided to go out for lunch and I asked for an old fashioned pub with proper English pies. Our first stop was the William IV, where we stopped for a drink, but as it didn’t have a good menu we continued on.

We decided on the Well House Inn in Mugswell, which dates back to the Doomsday Book. It is a very historic pub and a section of the bar was built in 1564. I had a chicken, bacon and mushroom pie, with old fashioned pastry and it was delicious. The whole pub was very atmospheric, with low beams and lots of wood and inglenook fireplaces.

Tomorrow I meet up with Shelley again and we head back to the College for another 2 weeks. Our first course is on Exploring Energy, Energy Management & Mediumship. The second week is Trance Healing 2.

171013 15 Lunch Well House Inn

Pub and pub grub
Pub looks good - and food looks like the classic pub fare these days. Notice that the pub was a free house - but you didn't show the beer taps, so I couldn't see what beers are promoted these days! Good to hear you are having a good time - and enjoy the remainder back in Essex. Cheers!

I don't know what a free house is or how to tell but I will take photos of the taps for you from now in. 😉

I certainly do. The atmosphere is great and they are so friendly, all the locals know each other and they remember us each time
