Reading Trent’s Weekly Smile I am reminded it is often the little things in life that brings us the greatest happiness.
On Sunday we went to one of our favourite restaurants in Lagos Marina for Sunday Roast.
For those not in the know, Sunday roast is typically British: Roast pork, beef or lamb served with three veg, a Yorkshire pudding and stuffing balls. Usual accompaniments include gavy, mint and/or horseradish sauce.
Anyway, I digress.
I rang the restaurant on Thursday to book a table for two (our friends were away on holiday). The helpful lady at the restaurant informed me that while all the tables for two were reserved if we were prepared to share with another couple we could have her last table for four. I thought about the idea for three seconds and immediately agreed. I am a sociable person by nature and it would give us the opportunity to meet new people.
Sunday came. We were first at the table.
The other couple arrived soon after. To break the ice I immediately introduced myself and husband and three hours later we were all still chatting and enjoying the company. In parting, it was a shame they were only here on holiday on not locals to the Algarve.
Have you ever shared a table with other diners and if so was it a positive experience?
