I took my friends out for lunch on the last day in Denmark. We went to “Cafè Lindevang
” på Peter Bangs Vejen. It’s a place where you get good old-fashioned traditional Danish smørebrød (open sandwiches), and I would dare anyone to order and eat two portions. I know out of experience that the portions are gigantic; but check the pictures and judge for yourself.
2x Pan fried plaice fillets w.Shrimp — 1x Prawns w. mayonnaise
Tatar w raw egg yolk and garnish — 2” Burger w Fried Egg
Fillet of pork with fried onions
I was struggling even though the portions were smaller than last time I was there.
I would have preferred to have a starter split 3 ways followed by the main open sandwich. Yes, there is bread under the mountain of meat, its not gravy nor shadow its bread.
I put it up on Gumtree and it didn’t take 5 minutes to sell; except my friend Dave warned me that payment should be cash on collection only.
The buyer that was really pushy, only wanted to pay using PayPal; Dave pointed out the danger of using PayPal to me. What is to stop the buyer collecting the goods and the ask PayPal to refund the payment insisting that the goods was not as described. This could result in: no sofa bed and no money!
So I told the customer cash only on collection; and guess what; he was no longer interested.
I had though had 2 more queries about the sofa bed, so I phoned one of them and they were delighted. They came this morning – mother and daughter – hmmm with the weight and awkward size of the sofa, hmmm.
Dave had said that he would come over because he didn’t like me dealing on my own with total strangers coming into my house. Fair point! So he came over and ended helping them. We also ended taking the bed out of the sofa, to enable them to move it and that made it so easy; but the mother had to come back for the bed.
My study looks so empty and huge without the sofa bed.
Coco, my cat, can’t jump up on my workspace anymore, so I had to put a chair close to the worktop for her to use as a ladder.
