The Ivy Restaurant And Bar – Round Two.


It’s my birthday tomorrow and James took me to The Ivy at the weekend to celebrate. We went this time last year; so we’ve now decided to make it a bit of an annual event for my birthday. (This time it took 8 weeks of desperately trying to get dinner reservations! AND we booked 2 months in advance! CRAZY). We had the most amazing meal, I just had to share!

To start I had the Buffalo mozzarella with foccacia, crushed broad bean pesto and vine tomatoes. While James had the grilled squid, chorizo and parsley salad. For mains I had Cornish lamb with sweetbreads & broad bean fricassée. I have to say, the lamb is served pink – this is the most amazing lamb I’ve ever ever aten. Absolutely amazing. I might also add, until I went back onto The Ivy website, I believed my lamb was served on a bed of Fois Gras… I just googled ‘sweetbreads’ and found this definition on Wiki. MENTAL. James had a rib eye steak, which has to be the biggest steak I’ve ever seen! It was huuuuuge! And beyond tasty! This came with a side of fries.

We then had an espresso each before squaring up the bill… Then we moved into The Ivy bar and had a round of cocktails.

Absolutely 5 star food with 5 star service. Brilliant. I can’t wait to go again next year! See you then The Ivy!

The Wait Is Over… The Revolution Is Here.


Today was the day that technological history hit me in the face with in a big, beautiful and shiny Apple bag.

(This is the beauty on my desk, along with my helmet and aeroplane heh).

(This is Lee Ryan (AKA Tom) modelling the beauty by his desk. heh).

I think it’s pretty damn amazing – can’t wait till James buys one for our house though! 😀

First observations? It’s not as big as I expected… of course, it is 10 inches, but it’s really not laptop size; it’s perfect size. Also, and ultimately, it’s really rather lightweight too! Infact, it’s a nice weight;o Whilst having a play with it, you certainly see how responsive it is too. We watched Toy Story 3 and messed on with the demo applications.

Call me sad, call me a geek – I don’t mind, but I’ll say this, this is the future of communication and computing. Right in the palm of your hand. Well done Apple, I salute you!

What do you think of the iPad so far then?

The Sweet Smell Of… Shoes?


I would very much like James to buy these lovely Vivienne Westwood feet so I don’t have the embarrassment of him smelling all the Melissa shoe’s wherever we go!

TA!
