Why Don’t You… Have Lunch At A Pub?

Image & Feature Image


Why don’t you…?

See a play? Instead of your usual Friday night movie? Get all dolled up? Have a glass of wine and a sweet treat at interval?

Eat things on toast? Tomato? Ham? Avocado? Nutella?

Start signing your name with a tiny personalised doodle? A little heart? A dandelion? Little bird feet prints?

Have lunch at a pub? Have a pint and pie?

Keep a wooden chest of delicious cushions and blankets at home? Offer them to guests to make their visit more comfortable?

Eat eggs? Boiled as a snack? Poached on toast? With lashings of tomato sauce on a homemade burger?

Play computer games? Crack open a beer and chill out for a few hours playing Mario Kart with friends?

Wear two chunky scarves at once? Pink and blue? Stripes and spots?

Take a small house plant for the hostess next time you’re invited for dinner? Tuck a sweet thank you card in it’s branches?

Grab a stack of plain note cards and a permanent marker? Write some inspirational quotes? Slip them into letter boxes or under random doors on your way to work?

    Love ‘Why Don’t You’ days! The chest of pillows and blankets sounds divine, especially on a cold winters day like today.
