Old-fashioned butcher's shop

Brings back memories of going all over town to find a 'bird' last year - so my mother and I went today to order a capon in a real specialty butcher's shop - they had pheasants still in their feather coats, quails' eggs, a huge variety of stuffing, pigeons, all kinds of sausages, and just everything you could imagine, I half expected Scrooge to come through from the back shop. I ate too much today (practising for Christmas day LOL) went a bit mad and had apple tart with cream, lemon drizzle cake, found some Cadbury's milk flakes I'd forgotten about - well there's still time before the New Year's resolution teehee!!
