Tuesday meal and movie night

As Craig chose to work from home today, Natalie and I did the school pick-up this afternoon then escaped to the shops leaving all three children with my competent husband. We had a fantastic time wandering around the gigantic shopping centre before we decided to make the most of our free time and go to the movies. As Natalie has been reading the bestselling book "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger, we decided to watch this together. It has an improbable plot about a man with a rare genetic disorder that sends him hurtling through time whenever he is under stress, yet he still manages to have a meaningful relationship with the main female character at various stages in her life. We left the movie agreeing that the cast was good and the script was bad. It was a lot of fluff, but at least we could watch the fluff together.
After the movie, Natalie persuaded me to join her for a meal at Ruby Tuesday which is a popular restaurant in the States and other places including Honduras where she lived previously.

After our entree, I enjoyed a main meal of Parmesan shrimp pasta. Natalie had steak and chicken fajitas. We shared a brownie sundae. AND IT WAS ALL DELICIOUS!

I think we were home by 11 pm, but I'm not sure. We were having too much fun to worry about the time.
