We joined Karen Paul, Debbie, Stefan, Rosi and David and headed for Lui’s in Kettering to celebrate in advance, Karen’s Birthday – we haven’t been there as a group since 13 May 2007 – and that was for Karen’s Birthday too! Julie and Tom couldn’t make it. We were a little early for our table so we stopped off at the Earl of Dalkeith in town for a round of drinks beforehand. It’s an unusual Pub – no loud music, cheap drinks and a collection of books on the top floor.
Lui’s are famous for their steaks and they didn’t disappoint – everyone had one of some sort. Mine came with a stilton and cream sauce. I was the only one to have a dessert though…mainly because everyone was stuffed! We all had coffee to finish.
What was noticeable was how quiet they were. On each occasion we’ve visited in the past on a Saturday night, they’ve been packed! Not tonight though; and by 9.45, we were the only people still there.
We brought the taxi forward to 11.15 and headed home but we were too knackered to go back to Karen and Paul’s for a nightcap. We said our good-byes and got to bed around 11.45
It was a great night out – it always is with the neighbours, but somehow it felt extra special this evening!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
