The same moment, from another point of view


The pub was so full we had to fight our way to the bar. I never like doing that. I like to think that pubs are places to relax in and standing up being pushed around in a bar is not what I call relaxing. I was glad when Sarah suggested we find somewhere less crowded.

She suggested the Fox, which I seconded at once. As it's right on the riverbank, we'd be able to sit outside on the grass if there was no room inside or in the beer garden. After a long afternoon on the Walker account all I wanted was alcohol to blow away the cobwebs — and somewhere to sit down!

The boys complained. They didn't like the beers as much at the Fox. But they agreed to come with us.
