It is birthday weekend here in our house.
Sock Victim is another year older and I had so much fun organising birthday treats.
Friday night the cats gave him a bottle of Plum Brandy (about 100 proof and 50%) - they did this as they like to see the monkeys make fools of themselves and well we did...
Yesterday I took S.V. on a culinary adventure - onto the train and then a short walk up to Mille Vini in Surry Hills for Peach bellinis and a small snack. Then another walk across to Paddington for dinner at Bon Riccardo - yum yum. We had a customised degustazione menu, which included the signature dish of truffled egg pasta. As each dish came out it surpased the previous one. Wow what a meal.
A correto for me and a grappa for him we poured into a cab home for the final piece in the birthday puzzle.
A digital radio, which was then the source of hours of fun setting up and which I am now listening to. It is amazing!!!! We were listening to PBS in melbourne and podcasts and now just classic FM - the sound is great.
Now for a bike ride to Bourke st Bakery for breakfast, roast pork and if I can manage it a Black Forest cake.
