Cowart's Common Room
An indoors kind of day

After a hot sunny day yesterday - in which I got lots of gardening, lawn mowing and laundry done I woke to a cold, windy and wet morning. The forecast is for more of the same...

Today therefore will be an indoors day I think. I've had my morning coffee and am working on calenders for Christmas presents. Might even do some filing and other boring but worthy officey things later.

Off to Auckland tomorrow for the weekend - its a long weekend here. We are picking up Dave's parents from the airport on Saturday night - won't get home till 10ish - when I remarked that they would have eaten dinner on the plane (they have been in tropical Port Douglas for 10 days in Australia) MIL made sniffy comments about that hardly consituting a meal and we may have to call in at McD's... that being a dig at me for not having a full roast ready and waiting no doubt! But, really, who eats up large at that time of night??? And I've always found airline food more than adequate in terms of a meal - not five star but enough to keep me going. I am not going to pander to this sort of silliness! A cold meat sandwich and a cuppa is all that will be on offer (and a big case of indigestion - no wonder she is on Losec!) Grrrr grrrr. I am such an uncaring DIL.LaughingRolling EyesLaughingRolling Eyes

Fennie's Avatar And me! I used to think airline food surprisingly good most opf the time, considering the paucity of what they had with which to prepare it. And you don't get hot towels at home. Do they still do hot towels on planes these days? And do you still get free wine and sometimes champagne? Flying alas is not what it used to be.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Let them call in at McD's and ask them to bring you a bag of chips!

Cowgirl's Avatar Solidarity! Love it! No hot towels anymore, Fennie, leastways not in our neck of the woods. In fact with Air NZ on domestic all you get is a snack and a cuppa. They did away with meals ages ago to keep prices down. Some evening flights replace this with cheese platter and wine (free) and as I am lovely I often get offered a second glass! Or is that because I skull it back so fast??? When flying internationally with Air NZ you can choose your fare and what add-ons you want. I always go for the Works - which means entertainment (movies etc), meals, wine and luggage. You can get Seat Only, or Seat + Luggage as well.

MIL is an over-eater. Portion size is a mysterious word. Her favourite saying is "I'm not greedy, I just like my food".... will have it on her tombstone I reckon!

Blackbird's Avatar Oh Cowgirl- then she'll probably have McD's and still be looking for a pick-me-up when she gets home. A little something to tide her over.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Sandwich and a cuppa sounds good to me at that time of night.
I have one friend who regularly eats after the children are in bed, thats not normally before 9.30pm and often much later if they get away with it

Rosie - Bag of chips??? Nice thought but McD's ... more a packet of small twigs with all the flavour thereof....

Westerwitch's Avatar Grief - give her some crackers and cheese and a cuppa and cover her face in a hot towel to stop her moaning Twisted Evil

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar McD's - well, I agree. We have pledged never to eat there and so far haven't been tempted.

I like airline food too - just love all those little packets to unwrap. KLM used to do a lovely snack packet on the flight from Cardiff to Amsterdam which we took often - a different nationality of sandwich. All gone now in favour of a small packet of Ritz. Shame!
