Someone in our house just turned 40. Not me but someone super cool and super lovely. The best part, after seeing his face as he got the coffee machine of his dreams, was that we got to go out. Out to dinner without the children! Together. It has been about 2 1/2 years since that happened. I was so excited. Like that kid in that lolly store!
We went to a pub. We stood with other grown ups and drank. We went to dinner. In a hip restaurant with hip people and hip food. With other grown ups. The food was fantastic and outstanding value.
It was all wonderful We had a ball. I was even the mature one who suggested we didn't have another mojito. I had forgotten how lovely it is to spend time with that other grown up in the house out of the house.
We live moments away from some great new restaurants like 'Moon Under Water' and 'Casa Ciuccio' so planning the next night out began before the last one ended. Someone in the house is nearly 39 so not too long to wait...
For anyone interested, we ate here
