Afternoon Drinks

If I lived in Rachel's World this blog would be entitled Saturday and it's white wine Afternoon....we were due to travel over to Sheffield to celebrate an old friend's 50th birthday celebrations but were let down by a dog sitter, so in a fit of sulking we dusted ourselves off and took the trailer trash train to Llandudno for a spot of lunch at Osborne House
After a bottle of wine each we sorted out some of the wedding plans, spoke to the maître d' about the wedding meal and got into the spirit of things.
Giddy as a kipper ....Chris in the tart's boudoir that is  the Osborne house cafe
I had a nice sleep on the train home .....

  13. Good recovery from your disappointment. Two bottles of wine can be very efficacious.

  14. If I may be so bold...how old is Chris? I think you shared that but I forgot. That picture is humorous.

  16. Some days, being flexible is the key to happiness, and a bottle of wine, the bottle of wine might work without being flexible. We are looking forward to the live blog of the wedding. Wish we could all be there.

  23. Glad you enjoyed your day although you were let down by the dog sitter.
    Hope you have organised the Irish priest to sing Hallelujah at the ceremony! YouTube sensation I read!

  24. I'm glad you didn't sulk and stay home. I am sorry the dog sitter let you down, i'd have been glad to pop by and help if i lived closer. While Janie and Jan were seeing to the dogs, i'd pet Albert.

  27. Hmmmmm I see. So did the doggies enjoy sniffing and weeing around Llandudno then?

    ReplyDelete
  28. things done off the cuff can be very rewarding but can chris take all the excitement looks like he is ready to bubble over with it

  29. A bottle of wine EACH!! I would have been comatose under the table and probably wake up in hospital in an intensive care unit.

  30. Have I missed you telling the date of your wedding, or is it still under wraps? Osborne House looks " posh", should be a good do!

  31. Chris looks quite at home in that tart's boudoir. Truthfully, I thought he looked very lordly. You inspired me to refer to the "tart's boudoir."

    ReplyDelete
  32. Chris looks a tad wine sozzled there.
    John, if those Easter egg candles don't arrive this week I'm going to have to go to the post office and find out what's going on...they were supposed to have arrived 7 to 10 days after I mailed them which was March 17.

  33. What a grand spot for sulking...glad you made a good day of it after the dog sitter spoiler...oh the drama in that face...

    ReplyDelete
  34. We must go back there, the food is brilliant, even better than the décor!!

  35. A bottle of wine each? I am surprised you could find your way to the train station. This comes from a non-drinker.
