It was Kat's birthday today so we ventured out into the freezing, foggy weather and drove into Bath for lunch and some shopping. Usually there is a fine view of the city from the top of Box Hill overlooking the Colerne valley but today it was shrouded in white fog, a truly wintery scene.
We found ourselves in Milsom Place, a little corner tucked away off the main thoroughfare where you can find a cluster of bars and restaurants - Jamie Oliver, Carluccio’s, Côte Brasserie and Yo Sushi. We decided to go French and ate at Côte. We had a table by the window and there was something very satisfying about enjoying good food and wine in a warm, busy restaurant watching people passing by outside, wrapped up against the cold and laden down with their shopping.
When we got home I thought I would put my feet up and have a snooze but the birthday girl had other ideas, she wanted to play charades. Such a ridiculous game but watching Paul bouncing around on the floor pretending to be a lion (or was it a lobster?) just reduced me to hysterical laughter. He then has the gall to shout at me when I don’t get Saving Private Ryan after he tried to resuscitate the zebra skin rug.
Is there a quiet, dark room somewhere?
