This is one of those weird posts that suffers from déjà vu. Sometimes, like GB, I think I’ve done a post and find I haven’t (or do a post and find I’ve already done it!) I was sure I’d posted about the Giggling Goose but find I hadn’t – so here it is.
The Giggling Goose is a café / restaurant in Ambleside, based in an old mill on the Stock Ghyll. It’s a beautiful setting, a beautiful building and their Cakes and service are top class. We didn't have a meal but I bet that would have been good too.
The young men who were running the place made everything themselves and Jo and I had three of their cakes between us. Far too much goodness…
The outside tables were nearly all full so we sat inside, by the counter and enjoyed the banter and jocularity of the young men – the chef, the server (or were there two?) and the young man behind the counter. Polite, helpful, always good humoured with both customers and each other, despite the pressure of a full café.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
