4,260 of 4,613 restaurants in Lisbon Tue, 15 Oct 2019 @ 9:18 pm

We enjoyed our meal in Lisbon, having purposely chosen the restaurant because it offered Portuguese food. That was until I checked out the Tripadvisor entry and discovered that it was 4,260 of 4,613 restaurants in Lisbon, which somewhat took the shine off the evening. My son’s comment via WhatsApp was “Almost the worst one in Lisbon 😂 fingers crossed…”, which was amusing if not comforting, whilst my missus chipped in with “Not like dad not to have done his homework!!!”.

Is it wrong for me to be annoyed by the use of the word “your” rather than the word “the”, as in ‘Here’s your weather”?

We could have taken the path through this field of corn but thought better of it

From the Kirkdale Bookshop in Sydenham, South London, five second-hand books for a tenner. My first visit and probably not my last.
