Well, here I am, another year older. I never mourn the passing of another year, it’s always better than the alternative and for that I am always grateful.
Of course today will involve food, family and friends, my favourite 3 f words. Actually it will probably include fizz too, and that’s another favourite f. I’ve had some fabulous birthdays, and lucky to have a summer birthday, even if it always does rain at some point on my birthday!
Lots of recent birthdays have involved food markets in France. Last year was Vannes, a couple of years before that was La Rochelle, which still probably ranks as my favourite. Although I got a fabulous cake in Vannes last year, and coffee at Les Nenettes was amazing.
But for knock out at every level, then I’d still go for the birthday I spent on Il de Ré.
What a lunch. What a view.
Stratford on Avon and Church Street Townhouse has something to live up to, but I can’t wait. I’ve eaten at Church Street Townhouse before and loved it, and so was my choice for my birthday lunch. Can’t wait to see what’s on the menu this time!
