We recently returned from a lovely jaunt to celebrate his birthday - Yay without the kids in tow. The big 4-0. Happy times and had a lovely meals at Englishs Seafood restaurant. I had a pint of prawns followed by locally caught lobster, spaghetti with courgette, basil and chilli. D has potted shrimp and grilled Dover sole washed down with a good bottle of Sancerre. I love the seating arrangement inside Englishs - its very cosy and you get to sit next door to your dining companion rather than sit opposite. Much more intimate I think. We shared a banana and chocolate sundae and ear wigged actress Sarah Miles telling her dining companions how she turned down the role in Kramer Vs Kramer - who knew they were going to re-do that weepy movie??? The Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep classic - actually all I remember from that film is her in the classic trench coat.
Don't you think she looks a little like Leighton Meester in this still?
After our meal I quickly popped into Cath Kidston nearby - yes I am a guilty addict and my home couldn't be more filled with her cheery prints. Had a quick rummage in the sale bin upstairs and got some lovely check fabric to upholster my sofa with.
