I’m older than I’ve ever been before!

I had a birthday. You don’t really need to know which one. But I did.

This is the first year I’ve ever had a Summer birthday though! I decided to celebrate this fact by lazing around on the balcony in the sun-shine, and having take out Thai food


with some expensive champagne. Himself indulged the occasion in my honour with some expensive whisky.


Followed by some cheesey movies (Cowboys and Aliens followed by Tourist), for a Friday night, it was everything I wanted to do.

Saturday I was spoilt! After a day out (which is an entire post all on it’s own and is still being structured), we ended up at the Bar Americain


to have some cocktails and collect ourselves.


After some discussion we decided that the place we needed to be was the Whisky Café. So that was where we headed.


They have a tasting menu where you get to try three different whiskys that have something in common. Either area, distillery … we went for the Whisky Appreciation Society selection and fell in love with the first one. So then we each had one of it. (It was an 11 year old Auchentoshan, very delicate, evaporated on your tongue with subtle notes of chocolate …)


Damn this makes it look like all we did was drink! I swear this will be rectified in the next post!

One of the best birthdays I’ve had in years. Thank you Himself, for making it so memorable, and so wonderful. I love you so much! *hugs you tight*

    1. It’s terrible!!! I have wasted YEARS drinking Jamesons! I blame you for that 😉

      Also, the menu we drank from was a barrel strength, not bottle strength! Damn but life is good! 😀

  1. Don’t blame ME for Jamesons 😉 You know it was good in comparison to everything else in the same price bracket. Besides, everything else here (better) is prohibitive in expense 😉

  2. Looks like it was a wonderful birthday! Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your day 🙂
