A grand shopping day in Cambridge

Friday, December 23, 2005 — Cambridge. The day was spent doing the various shopping tasks before everything closes down for Christmas: a trip to the farmers market for veg, then to Marks & Spencer for the Christmas pudding (and underwear and socks, on sale). In the afternoon there was a trip to Waller’s Master Butcher shop to pick up the pheasant for Christmas dinner, plus pork pies and some paté.

Later we went for drinks at the Gibbs Building in King’s College with Derek’s friend Jim Trevithick, a fellow in Economics at King’s. Very pleasant and entertaining. He had other plans, so he let us go about 5:00. Another quick stop at Sainsbury’s before we came home for the evening. Preparation for dinner of pork pies, mash, green beans.
