Lifeboat Day in Bude today on one of the best bank holiday Mondays I can ever remember. We parked a mile out of town and strolled over the cliffs into Bude. Had a damn good pasty in the Lifeboat Day marquee then ambled into town for a cappuccino. Had a good butchers at the vintage cars on the Wharf and had a pot of tea at the Olive Tree by the canal. Then strolled back over the cliffs and went home for a barbie with pork fillet (wot I'd bought at Gloucester Services) and campfire potatoes that were scoffed even before they knew they'd been dug up, all herby and garlicky, with buttery runner beans from t'garden. All washed down with a cheap bottle of Prosecco wot I'd bought for a fiver at Morrisons and a magnum of Nero d'Avola wot I'd bought for £7.99 at Lidl (there's still plenty left). At half nine we strolled up our lane to the vantage point for watching the Lifeboat fireworks display from a distance. Jesus, we know how to live.
