My birthday day so far

Yes it is that time of year again, my birthday! Having a pretty low key day today and we sort of had to come back home so I could change, because, being true to myself, I spilt carrot juice all over my top during lunch. I decided to take this opportunity to do a short post.

In the morning my hubby took me to the bunny park, the weather is absolutely lovely today and it was wonderful to see all the animals.







For lunch we went to the 1907 restaurant at Brooklands Hotel. It is such a wonderful place, they have seasonal menus and the food is always delicious.

As usual there was a complementary bread basket with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping.

I had fish cake and poached egg as a starter.



 It is a lobster, salmon, smoked haddock and crayfish cake with a fennel and caper salad. Delicious as expected. Dressing, salad, poached egg, and the cake all complemented each other perfectly.

 

Pasta and truffles for the main. With wild mushrooms, creme fraiche and spinach, fresh parpadelle and fresh truffles. The words can not describe how good it was.



The pasta looked hand made and was cooked to perfection, and the sauce was absolutely divine. My husband made some comments about the faces I was pulling after each mouthful. As usual my tiny stomach wouldn't allow me to finish the whole dish, but I pushed it as far as I could, I honestly did not want to leave anything behind.

The presents that I got so far.



An art set and a balance me skin-quenching body collection. I also got some wonderful drawing pencils from my parents, and an exercise strap from my hubby (is he trying to hint at something?).

Well I am off to bask in the sun, hope everyone is having an awesome day!
