For me, a birthday isn't just for the celebrant. It's mainly for the celebrators!
Having all of my loved ones together is probably one of the best sights I could ask for.
Well next to the sight of a slice of chocolate cake... anyway, I digress.
I usually plan my birthday's as I like being in control (Yes, I'm working on that.)
So to hear that a surprise was lingering in the air was... well... let me be honest - it was a test.
Not being in charge of the guest list or the venue was frustrating to say the least.
For all I know, I could've ended up unconscious in the corner of Mexico. (Which probably would've made one hell of a post...)
I was told to arrive at Monument station at 7:40pm sharp and to no avail, London traffic lead to an 8pm arrival.
However, anything from Aspinal of London will definitely make me shifty eyed. I always "ooh" and "ahh" at their stationery and bags. As my family weren't dining with me I knew I wouldn't get told off for opening it before we ordered the food.
One thing I have been asked is what the "RME" in my url stands for.
Well, I'm happy to announce it actually stands for "Reindeers March Everywhere." I love Christmas.
Haha I'm only kidding. (I do love Christmas though!)
They're just a few of my initials. My parents gave me a lot of names so when I have things monogramed they vary between CMT, CET, CME, CMR, CER, CMA it goes on and on.
A few glasses of wine in and it was time to order. We dined at the Folly and you can find their info here
Steak can be a hit or miss if not cooked correctly but I would definitely return for this one!
