We headed off to Rosi’s tonight to help her celebrate her 60th Birthday.
We arrived for 6.30 (Paul and Karen gave us a lift after the weather deteriorated in the afternoon, meaning we didn’t fancy the walk).
The gang was all there – Tom, Julie, Trish, John, Paul, Karen with Dave on Bar Duties! 😊😊
What made tonight truly unique was that Rosi took a well-deserved break from her normal excellent culinary preparations! Instead, she’d hired Stephanie and Samira to do all the cooking!
And what a feast it was! We’ve spent the past 20+ years visiting each other homes for really excellent dinner parties – but tonight was in a different league! In turn, it gave Rosi a ‘night off’ (and Dave too, from washing-up duties’).
The menu was Sushi-based and it certainly didn’t disappoint! Restaurant quality in the comfort of your own home (well, Rosi and Dave’s anyway) 😁.
Course after course followed where, collectively and individually, our jaws dropped as each course arrived – lovingly prepared from scratch and mouth-wateringly delicious too!
Just like the wine, the conversation flowed (as it always does when us lot together) and midnight came and went!
What a fantastic evening – one we’ll never forget! Rosi’s always been very creative and tonight had ticked all the boxes for imagination. Fantastic!
We walked home with Paul and Karen and finally ‘hit the sheets’ just before 2am! 😮
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’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
