    Dinner Rush
    Open Thread 
    After another day of work done with, Tom had decided to take dinner at the Leaky Cauldron before heading on home. He had to wonder what Anna had done with her day and how many times their mother had driven her nuts today. Chuckling inwardly at the thought, Tom scanned the Leaky for a place to sit and eventually chose a table by the door.

    After putting in his order, he observed the other occupants of the establishment before taking a book out of his satchel and settling in to read while he was waiting. He had not been reading long when someone unexpectedly sat at his table and caused Tom to look up at the individual inquisitively.

    Either the days were getting longer or he was getting older and though Ned knew that the latter was undoubtedly true, he adamantly insisted, with his usual good humour, that the former must also be so. It made his sisters laugh at any rate, though he doubted they realised quite how much his aches and pains slowed him down these days.

    Merlin, he needed something to keep him young. A wife would do the trick. Sadly the only women he knew were his sisters and several perfectly pleasant, but gallingly professional, ladies at the Ministry and they did little for him.

    Luckily he had his work and the pub was a home of sorts. With a pint in hand he scanned the room, looking for conversation and chuckled to himself when he spotted young Mr Grant and crossed to join him, hoping sitting with a student wouldn’t make him seem utterly pathetic.

    “Drinking alone Mr Grant? Never a good idea."

    Tom granted a smile in response to the older mans words. "Just having some dinner," he informed Mister Spring. Tom didn't really drink except for the occasional night out with friends but that was hardly information that he felt the desperate need to depart when it was clear that Mister Spring was just being friendly.

    "It won't be drinking alone if you join me, though," he added on with a chuckle. Tom would have preferred to have been left alone but he didn't think he would mind Mister Springs company. The man seemed congenial enough at the moment.
