Garden Guests

I wake up quite early in fact. I yeah I don’t feel great but not as bad as I expect. I get breakfast for us both, which half way through I decide to clean the kitchen window from top to bottom. My brother gives the frying pan a poke, and I get down and finish it off. I then suggest we go for a walk into the town to see what shops are open. My brother is keen on this as he needs some new trainers. So we head down the road and into the shopping center. Not all the shops are open but some are. I take him to game, Wilko’s, and JD sports. Whilst in Game we are talking to the assistant about a playstation 4 and the deal on swapping a PS3. However I’m interupted by Alan calling “Nack we are on our way if your in”. “Well I’m not in but I’m not far I reply, come on down if you want”. I was surprised by this as I knew they’d gone to a party the night before and expected them to have not gone to bed until 4am! My brother was desperate to go to Aldi at the furthest part of the town center and so off we went.

And doing so took us past The Electric Palace Picture house. whilst Stockport has the Plaza we have this.

We make it to the Adli and buy lost of things I was intending to buy, including a door matt. Alan calls, “where are you?” “Still in the center, walk on down and well get a drink”

After a getting Alan lost we meet up in the car park. They had walked it was just easier to relocate them there and there they were waving at us. We headed into the Weather spoons and sat outside. Zoe got out a game about fireworks. A game where you have to play with each other and not against each other.

A game were you can’t look at your own cards.

IMG_20140928_131530_354

A game were you have to be selectively helpful to each other to maximise the overall end score.

Very enjoyable as a foursome. They want some food so

IMG_20140928_135646_617

we go to the pub that used to put bands on but now just serves food.

IMG_20140928_135613_262-1

I have a milk shake, which Alan and Zoe seem very happy about.

IMG_20140928_135602_737

One minute it is there.

IMG_20140928_140523_983

the next it is gone. Ahhh lovely.

Our food comes and we get served. I reach for two chilli bottles and as if the one with the skull and cross bones is extra hot or something to be avoided at all costs. But apparently that's not why the skull and cross bones is on the bottle.

We head back to my place and we decide to sit in the garden. I get the table out that Mrs Poade gave to me and

Zoe gets out the game that I brought for her birthday.

IMG_20140928_154140_300

We set the game up.

IMG_20140928_182832_677

We read the rules and play.

IMG_20140928_182837_213

and what appears to be a very complicate game at first is uniquely enjoyable.

IMG_20140928_182839_906

But who is going to win, it appears so random?

IMG_20140928_183154_871

the game goes on and on and on.

IMG_20140928_183221_929

But not in a bad way.

IMG_20140928_183205_646

And as we play some of us get better and better and better at it.

IMG_20140928_183209_494

and some of don’t!

IMG_20140928_183227_982

that would be me.

IMG_20140928_183233_668

Tea is served

IMG_20140928_183240_614

although my tea pot doesn’t contain earl grey to Zoe disappointment and neither does my kitchen.

IMG_20140928_183246_310

the Buddha watches over us

IMG_20140928_183252_410

and I show Zoe my fairy lights – although not my fairy.

IMG_20140928_183941_587

The game comes to an end. And Micheal Menzel has produced a great game.

IMG_20140928_184026_493

i know he’s done 3 others as well.

IMG_20140928_210225_561

Alan and Zoe leave before dark and I take my brother home before going around my parents.

IMG_20140928_223002

Time flies by before you know it.

IMG_20140928_223614_764

I settle down and

IMG_20140928_223621_087

try to watch that episode of Doctor who again all the way through. Its been a most enjoyable day.
