Catchup: Nick & Celina

Reading time: < 1 minute...

Today was a (very) belated catch-up with friends, Nick & Celina (originally pencilled in for the 22nd of December, last year!). As regular readers will already know, this was postponed because I was in hospital being treated for a severe slicing to my left pinkie brought about by an ‘argument’ on the day with a broken piece of cereal bowl!!! πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

But before all the food today, we met at the nearby Lord Nelson in Oakham for a ‘swift half’…

…before heading off to one of our favourite eateries – Hitchen’s Barn – just around the corner for our 12.45 table.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

The Menu was as imaginative as ever, and they were already busy by the time we arrived.

I’m not a fan of asparagus and fish and they would never be my first choice from any menu, so just look at me and my choices today! πŸ€”. Truth is, everything they’ve ever served me here has always been delicious – even my non-favourites! Yes, my choices turned out to be delicious!

But what about Dessert? Well, being a fan of Guinness, it was a bit of a no-brainer – so it had to be the ‘Dark Chocolate Guinness Cake’. No surprises – it was absolutely yummy! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹.

Dark Chocolate Guinness Cake!

I’m not sure where the time went, but by the time asked for the bill, it was just before 3pm! It had been great to catch up with N&C’s news – and the food had been as good as it always is!

All that was left was to say our goodbyes. Ann drove home, where we had just one thing on our mind – a late afternoon snooze! πŸ˜΄πŸ’€πŸ˜΄πŸ’€
