Most cafes, bars and restaurants are starting to reopen here now and the coffee shop attached to the museum in Peel announced that they were opening this week, with the return of their winter special - in June. Coffee and cake for £3.50.
As we needed to buy more milk and bread today, we decided to make a special trip of it - how exciting(!) - and popped in to take advantage of the special offer.
There was no crockery or cutlery in use. The coffee and cake are served in cardboard takeaway cups and trays, with disposable wooden stirrers. It was, however, delicious and good value. A huge cup of Americano with some hot milk and a very large slice of light, moist, homemade cake. I had lemon drizzle and P had coffee and walnut.
It was a grey morning again but thankfully no rain, so we had a stroll around town. We decided to go into the Town Hall to take a look at the plans for the proposed street improvements, which are causing some controversy in the town. Although the main street is in dire need of attention - it is looking pretty scruffy - the plans are not very popular. It will be interesting to see what happens.
We then bought our milk and bread in the virtually empty supermarket and drove home again.
Such an exciting life we lead.
