The end of an era.
This is it!
After many years of wining and dining at some close friends of ours, tonight (I'm writing this at 2am), was the final time we would be socialising at their London home.
As of next week, their new address will contain a Salisbury postcode. This is both sad and uplifting.
Over the years, they have cooked us the great, the weird and the wonderful but tonight was good old fashioned roast chicken and potatoes with an amazing garlic stuffing, not to mention a fabulous courgette soup.
There was plenty of wine, plenty of chat and laughter before we veered off towards our inevitable pre-requisite moan about the world in general. The ingredients of a successful evening in my book!
I look forward to many more of the same in new surroundings.
Good luck to our friends Anne-Marie and Richard.
All the best in your new lives guys; we will miss having you just around the corner.
