We went to Maidstone in the end
We had a lovely lunch in Cafe Rouge, that's a really nice place. It's easy to be sniffy about chains, and I do have to have the same dish every time I go but we always have a really nice time when we go there. It's having a nice glass of wine with lunch that might be the key... I enjoyed my lunch so much (only hummus baguette and chips) that I'm making the same thing for tea in a minute.
I got my hair cut in Maidstone too, a spur of the moment decision, while I left Clare and Harry and Tommy in a cafe (another cafe). Auite pleased with the cut, pleased with the price anyway. It was a new barber shop just opened doing a special deal to attract new customers. Jacob's, on Mill Street I think, they were very nice in there.
We got Tommy a toy today too, a Firefly he seems to like it a lot.
It's been a lovely day all round, and it's a nice sunny evening here too.
