    Truth is I am not keen on either. My fiancée is over on a visit visa and she wanted to visit South Kensington, the museums and Buckingham Palsce. It’s years since I have benn over this way. I used to work in Hans Crescent just next door.

    The fish and chips look good though. She loves fish chips.

    Sometimes I like Cod but in Scotland I love Haddock, I would love to visit that place in Harrods but the reality is I never will, apart from that me and Ana are not on speaking terms at this point in time so she is not likely to be in this country for a very long time :)

    In twelve minutes time I will be eating fish and chips (and peas) with Tartare sauce and it will have cost me about £1 pound 35 pence :D

    edit: It better be bloody good if I ever visit there :D

    lol :D

    At home in the flat making it myself, very very nice I should say, fish is Haddock, oven chips are frozen, peas are frozen Tartare sauce from Morrisons :D

    I cook for myself 98% of the time, now of course not all of that is not home cooking, but lunch today was home cooked, a home made version of a Chinese beef fried rice all fresh ingredients.

    I live on a very small budget because I am saving in massive terms to let me retire :D

    That explains everything then :D

    Hehehehehe.

    Well done sir and awe the best, for me I'm probably going to be 65 before I actually retire but possibly earlier if I can negotiate terms with the people that need me, it would be in their best interest.

    Whilst £25 is bloody expensive, £1.35 is bloody cheap.

    We visited Harrods right enough. £3.50 for 2 chocolates, £5.00 for a marzipan strawberry. Everything was over priced. I can’t see how I managed to pay for my lunch in there back in the 70s.
