The law on using TR has always been draconian, it just wasn't enforced. Now it is which means I don't think I'll be using them much. You can only use them on weekdays on the sort of food I never or hardly ever buy. You can buy ready-prepared and ready-to-eat meals such as salad and sarnies, and that's about it. You can't use them to buy food to make your own sarnies or salads which I think is most spiteful.
If the Powers That Be think I'll be dashing into a restaurant every day from now on, they can think again. I won't, because I go home for lunch and watch Agatha Christie mysteries on ITV3 followed by Wycliffe. You don't get that in a restaurant. You get, often, average food, served slowly, and I don't eat that much in the middle of the day anyway. One has to consider one's figure...
I won't be buying ready-prepared salads either. They have a funny taste. I occasionally buy sarnies, especially on the road to Nice or back, with my TWDB, but that's not exactly a frequent occurrence. So I'm gutted really, that I can't use Tickets Restaurant in Carrouf any more. It was dead handy. I'll have to try Intermarche instead.
It's funny how I'm going through a phase of watching Poirot and other Agatha Christie mysteries at the moment. When I was sick last week, I watched everything like that I could get my hands on, and if it wasn't AC, it was Wycliffe, and Heartbeat. What's really strange is that when I mentioned this to my mother, she said she's also glued to AC mysteries, and that my brother is going through a reading phase of AC books.
Talking of books, apparently I should be on Amazon soon. I'm quite gobsmacked at the prospect. It's not my long-suffering novel that's finally hit the shelves, but the kiddy books I was commissioned to write. Watch dis space!
