In a month's time we'll have a new member of the Burton clan, an incredibly cute cream Labrador Retriever. We've had to pick a first and second choice, and this is our first (currently to be named either Henry or Louie):
The trip to see him was... a challenge. In theory a train to Norwich only takes 2:20, but it ended up taking us over 3:40... and Ely station (Station Of The Year 1987, don't you know) is surprisingly cold when waiting there for half an hour.
We can't wait for him/her to arrive (current favourite names for the second choice, a girl, are Ella or Bess), and really hope the house move hurries along, we're getting the dog on the 17th December and were planning on completing on the 1st, but that is looking more and more unlikely.
Eat And Two Veg
Last night Vicky and myself went to Eat And Two Veg, a vegetarian restaurant on Marylebone High Street, with Eva and Saadia. It's an excellent restaurant with a 100% vege menu, and along with the "pure" vegeterian dishes they also had some mock-meat dishes, such as Crispy Fried Luck for starters, burgers, and sausage and mash.
The restaurant is in the style of a 60's diner, and we even got a booth which was great, as we had a bit more privacy.
It was great to see Eva and Saadia again, it's been months since we've seen Saadia and the last time we saw Eva was in February...
