Mr Him is Confused

Dear reader,  it's been a quiet week, with me not talking, and Mr Him has mostly behaved.  I say mostly because I did let him sleep Sunday night in the lounge due to his confusion.  He was strangely none the wiser.  It must have been the rums he consumed in the afternoon. 

We had walked the dogs to the pub on the basis that I could walk and drink with braces in. Mr Him did seek assurance that I couldn't speak .  I gave that assurance, anxious to enjoy a drink or two.

The woods were muddy and green,  the dogs muddy and keen, Mr Him dapper and lean  (I wish. ) 



We had a first round  (notice use of first.  It suggests more, delightfully). 





 Some pubs in the UK have free nibbles on the bar on Sundays. 




We partook of sausage rolls,  because I could. Lovely and squidgy.  Mr Him tempted the dogs,  look at those eyes ! Feral in their eagerness.




Mr Him went to the bar for another round.  Seems it was on the basis of one for him  two for us as he snuck a rum tasting in for himself whilst he ordered our round. 



He must have liked the rum as when I said two for us,  I meant it. 








Having finished this round we  joined another couple at their table to help them with their round.  Mr Him was particularly keen when they suggested it but disappointed and confused to find they meant a board game or two rather than beverages.

  1. That looks like fun. Sadly our local pub, The Dumb Post, is just a bit too far away to walk to, we'd get there OK but never manage the walk home again, sober or otherwise.

  2. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday. Getting confused and then sleeping in the lounge.

  3. I wish sometimes that we lived in town so that we could walk to something. (Trust me, there are no such pubs here in Ontario). I noticed, on our trip last summer, how many people bring their dogs into pubs. That was a new thing for me, too. -Jenn

    1. It tends to be country pubs or residential areas. The towns not so much.

  4. As with my sister Canuck Jenn, that's what leapt out at me too in this post -- you can take your dogs into the pub? We can't in Canada because of health regulations. No dogs (except service dogs) allowed in establishments serving food/beverages.

    1. They are not allowed in food prep, storage and handling areas but serving areas are allowed depending on local authority regulations. Many pubs do not allow it. The publican can allow it as long as the regulations are adhered to. Dogs are not allowed in shops selling food.

  7. Glad to hear you're feeling better, nice to see that you're having fun with Mr Him and enjoying some pub grub, though that game looks huge and complicated.

  8. Query from Puzzled of Hastings. Why braces?

  9. What a wonderful pub, and beautiful dogs too.

    Yes, braces are hard at first, but brilliant results xx
