She did not like cooking three times a day every day
Mr Reece was a farmer. He and his wife grew a lot of things and they had a few cows. They worked very hard. One day, Mr Greece 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”
他们坐火车去了朴次茅斯，步行了大约一小时。后来，12点的时候，他们想吃饭。他们看了几家饭店。在其中一家饭店，外面有一个牌子：“午饭： 12:30 - 2:30: 1.50英镑。”
“Well, that’s good,” Mrs Reece said. “We can eat for two hours for ￡1.50 here. This is the place for us.”
