We've got a special birthday to celebrate today, so we're going somewhere appropriate - here. Can't wait. I've actually been there before, for one of my catastrophic lunches with Johnny, Kevin and the late, great, Richard. I'm struggling to recall details, but I'm sure it was wonderful. Let's see how it shapes up tonight.
The rain came overnight, which means for the first time in a week or so, I've not had to wander out to the garden first thing to water all of the plants. The shower seems to have perked them all up - the Dahlias in particular seem to be going through a growth spurt, and have flowered spectacularly.
