Have you ever heard of the phrase "There's no such thing as a free lunch"?
Well, time will tell, but I may have found me one today.
There is only one problem in that it involves me going to a footall match.
Now, as I don't do football, I am being a bit of a hypocrite in accepting the invitation, but the person who has invited me knows me well and is a good friend. And I like food.
I'll let you know whether it really is a free lunch.
The next conundrum is how do I get there? I usually drive, but if I am on a freebie in a paid-for box, I quite fancy a drink or two. That means doing battle with several Chiltern Railways trains and the Metropolitan Line. I've even found my empty Oystercard so that I don't have to pay silly cash fares for the last bit of the journey to Watford.
I think I'll drive tomorrow for the rugby and go by train today.
Get up... get out... it's a lovely Autumn day here in rural Buckinghamshire. I've just taken this picture shown at the top of this post from the bedroom, especially for you! Enjoy.
