the perfect prints perfect companion

Saturday was our 11th wedding anniversary, and Stuart gave me the best card ever. Not only does it have robins, my favourite bird, the illustration style is gorgeous and the colours match our room and my other new print perfectly. It's wonderful! So by lunchtime I had been and bought it a frame to match, and now it is up on our wall, looking fantastic. What a great present. Our day on saturday was very hectic, Holly had dancing exams first thing, then we went out for lunch, then we had to get home in time to take Holly to a birthday party where I stood and watched 30 kids on a bouncy castle for two hours. Then in the evening Stuart cooked us a delicious meal, and I had my very first taste of lobster, at age 33. This is what we had: scallops with chorizo and parsnip puree, followed by lobster thermidor followed by a warm lemon cake with clotted cream and raspberries. mmmmmmmm I didn't get any pictures as I was too busy drinking champagne and eating! : )
