Ducks outside the pub, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

Today is a pub lunch sort of day. I enjoyed bangers and mash in front of a roaring fire in a 15th century pub.

The pub actually keeps ducks and chickens, in a very free range manner. We had to chase a particularly stubborn chicken off the road outside the pub before we could sit down to eat.

Still, some exercise in the cold helps build up an appetite.
