Mr Reece was a farmer . He and his wife grew a lot of things and they they had a few cows. They worked very hard . One day, Mr Reece said to his wife, ‘’ let’s go to Portsmouth next Sunday.We can have a good lunch there , and then we can go to the cinema.’’
His wife was very happy when she heard this,because she and her husband always ate a lot, and she did not like cooking three times a day every day.
They went to Portsmouth by train and walked about for an hour.
Then when it was 12 o’clock, they wanted to have a meal. They looked at several restaurants. In one of them there was a notice outside: ‘’lunch : 12.30 to 2.30 : 1.50 Pond.’
‘’Well , that’s good.’’Mrs Reece said .’’We can eat for two hours for 1.50 pond here! This is the place for us.
