Yesterday was just great. Met J at Ricks and although out table wasn't immediately ready we were chilled out. I got her a joint Birthday>Christmas pressie by getting her (&me) a Spa day here>

We're going to have proper girly day of total pampering inc lunch & champagne, so it was kinda wee Christmas present to myself after bit of tough year, think we're going in January, cant wait!She was delighted.

Lunch was started with Bellinis, which were superb. I had white onion soup then chicken, J had rocket & feta ravioli followed by salmon. Food was great, service slipped after we ordered bottle wine, basically guy never came near us again. So id we'd wanted desert, more wine, drinks etc it was tough. Never left tip cause of that, hate bad service. We even ended up going to bar to pay, not on really.

We left there then went to few more bars where we were eventually joined first by Martyn, The Oliver, then Graham. Time flew by and it was 7.30 before we knew it, ooops should be at concert by now! Luckily we'd stayed central enough and it was short walk to the church. Concert was superb, all lovely Christmas songs, all harmonious and just lovely. First time I've been in church in ages the heathen that i am! Not so good catholic girl me! They had an interval halfway through and me & martyn ran across road to pub! lol The concert was finished off with a great rendition of Hallelujah which just lifted the roof, it was superb. Nice end to great day.

Cant say i'm not diverse, i can go from Champagne cocktails to Church, just like that ;)
