I met up with Bertie last night, and gave him his Christmas gift, just in case we weren’t able to meet up again before Christmas.

We went to a hotel in the city centre which had a bar/grill – we’d been there before and enjoyed excellent service, but this time round, we had to wait 15 minutes before someone even came to take our drinks orders! Not happy.

I saw the grill was serving oysters which I’d never tried before, so I thought I’d give them a shot. When the server eventually turned up, Bertie asked for 4 oysters as appetisers. But they’d run out of them! Not happy.

So we decided to go straight for the main course (fillet steak), and when it turned up, it was absolutely delicious! So were the desserts (creme brûlée and cheesecake). Doubly happy. 😀
