I may be a wee bit tipsy right now. It's not like I let my spark go and drank my weight in jagerbombs - I only had one cider. I may be the cheapest date ever.
Anyway. I was quite worried about this meal because we all know what restaurants are like; plates piled high with ginormous portions, mystery gloopy sauces and a fine layer of salt over everything. Plus it was a set menu and we HAD to order 3 courses.
But it turns out I could have had absolutely anything I wanted from the menu because it was one of those restaurants where a 'portion' is roughly equal to a large mouthful. So I s tuck to my healthiest choices of salmon salad starter and turkey and trimmings main, but then 'splurged' and went for the rice pudding dessert. Most feeble splurge I've ever had. But I have to say they were two darn tasty mouthfuls of rice pudding. With cinnamon, mmmmm.
I'm very quiet in the office (mostly because I feel like a little girl playing at grown ups) so it was nice to get out and relax enough to properly talk to my colleagues. I laughed a lot, let's call it my cardio for the day : p
