The lovely couple running 97 High Street bed & breakfast (a name and an address in one) both made mid-life career changes, which gives us something to talk about in between the half-dozen courses of a Full English Breakfast.
Hot tea, juice, cereal, fresh-baked rolls, eggs with smoked salmon, tomatoes and mushrooms, fruit… usually you get a sampling of these – this morning it was all on the table! There’s clearly more food here than I could possibly eat, and yet somehow I managed. It was delicious.
It was fuel for the walk ahead, but at a certain point ‘fuel’becomes ‘ballast,’ and I was moving slow on the walk.
