Yes, my birthday went well… how could it not when it starts with a box of roses from my mother delivered before work, and on my arrival home I get a bunch of Irises (purple! My favourite flower, yesm!) from a friend in Melbourne? :)
After a dazed day at work (I’m got a cold and am generally worn down by other health stuff. No, I’m not pregnant, though someone suggested it might be why I’m tired!) I dolled up in a new LBD, new tights and some killer heels to head to Rocksalt for dinner.
We started with the SOFTEST BREAD IN THE WORLD, for $4 each. God bread. Served with olive oil and dukkah.
For dinner, I went for the Duck, and Rish the Pork…
All the while, we drank a 2007 Pinot Noir Rose from Olssen’s Winery in Central Otago, which we’d been hanging onto since our NZ Trip at the end of 2007. Still tasted as awesome (well nearly as awesome as drinking it in generous sample sizings amongst the vines!)
I gave dessert a miss, except for a few mouthfuls from Rish’s tasting plate. mmm.
Lovely night out with Rish, rambling about the present and our future. Now to plan for his birthday in a month!
