Cocktails in Windsor

Hello. Just been finishing off the birthday celebrations.

David and I visited this new cocktail/wine bar in Windsor. It’s called “The Cobbles” which is a good name for it as it is situated in the cobbled streets near the castle. This building, known as “The Drury House”, dates back to 1645. It has original wood panelling and feels seriously old and atmospheric.

It’s not cheap – I think we paid £12.50 each for our cocktails – but good for a special occasion. We both had the honey and orange margaritas which were delicious and I thought might be medicinal for David who is recovering from a heavy cold 🤣. The decor inside has an Art Deco vibe. I took the opportunity to display my new bright pink birthday handbag 🤣🤣

We moved on to a meal at “À la Russe” restaurant in the high street which sounds Russian but is in fact French. It’s always good there. I had the avocado and crab salad starter followed by the new Terre et Mer main dish which included big juicy king prawns and strips of beef in a rich brandy and cream type sauce. It was very good.

For pudding we shared the baked Alaska which is David’s favourite. It gets flambéed at the table in front of you.

I also got some beautiful surprise birthday roses at work on Friday. I am a lucky girl.

The photos arrived for my locket which the jewellery shop, Astley Clarke, had cut to size for me. I slotted in my Mum and Auntie Jean. I’m really pleased with this. Don’t they look cute?

The back of the locket was engraved with my initials.

So when I hand this heirloom down to the next generation via my niece, everyone has to remember me! 🤣

The locket was not a birthday gift but a gift to myself with my boss’s Christmas money.

Also for my birthday I received a new cork trivet from my friend Sarah.

I love the patterns on it. It matches the cork coasters she had given to me previously. They came from the RHS shop at Wisley. Thank you Sarah! And to all the other lovely people in my life who celebrated with me and delivered cards and gifts of course.

There are some wonderful tulips around at the moment, moving on from the daffodils. Spring has sprung. Yippee!

When I’ve not been eating, drinking, looking at nature or seeing my Mum, I’ve done a serious amount of sleeping and napping this weekend. Living up to my nickname of “the dormouse” Zzzzz. Zzzzzz. Have a great week everybody! xx
