Today is our one year wedding anniversary! :)

As part of our celebrations we had a picnic in Richmond Park this weekend, which was a good way to escape from the record breaking heat. We invited a few friends, but admittedly on shortish notice so Nate was the only one who was able to join us. We found a secluded spot in the trees and throughout our picnic the deer grazed calmly around us. I made fresh a mozzarella, avocado, cherry tomato, and Milanese olive oil salad which we ate with parma ham, mixed olives, and a baguette. We had some of the Chèvretine goat's cheese and Corsican cheese and for dessert the Poulain (dark chocolate with espresso beans) and strawberries. We drank a considerable amount of wine. After the picnic Nate came to our flat and by the end of the evening we had drunken 10 bottles of wine between the 3 of us. Of course the 1990 bottle of Cotes du Bourg was one of the last to go and I don't remember what it was like, nor do I remember much of that evening except Nate blasting a surreal Mr. Scruff song about whales. It was fun, even though I woke up still clothed early the next morning with a splitting headache. Everyone felt fragile, but Nate somehow managed to kindly cook us a good breakfast (despite one of the eggs being frozen).



















Tonight Max and I are going to go to the Thai-restaurant-in-a-pub and we'll open our bottle of 1995 Veuve Clicquot which we've had a for a few years now, that is if we think we can face drinking more after this weekend.

Thank you. :) I'm still feeling the affects. I'm not a big drinker generally so I was surprised when Max told me the final bottle count. Of course it was stretched out over 8 hours or so.

yes, this year has passed incredibly fast for me.

hehe well I still owe a couple people thank you cards, but that's due to losing their addresses in my multiple moves this past year.

It still feels like yesterday that you announced your pregnancy and now you have a darling gang-sign flashin' poop factory (but I'm sure he does it so cutely that all is always forgiven). The year really has flown by. ;)

Thanks! I can't believe it's been a year already either, it's absolutely flown by (which I guess is a good sign!) :)

Happy anniversary! Mmmm - Veuve Clicquot - mmmm.

Funny, I spotted some Mr Scruff on someone's list I was browsing on SoulSeek yesterday, and was tempted to download. Perhaps I should give it a listen...

Yes, Veuve Clicquot is so very yum, it's my favorite champagne. Although we ended up drinking freshly squeezed lemonade instead of champagne, we were both still feeling too delicate to attempt drinking. We decided to open it on my birthday next week. :)

You should, last weekend was the first time I've heard him and I loved it (although I can't get the whale song out of my head now).

Yes, probably best to save the Veuve for when you'll really appreciate it. At Guy's party there was quite a lot of the stuff going down. It's his favourite too, and he'd mentioned the fact recently on the email list we frequent - so all of us turned up with a bottle of Veuve as his birthday present (of course, I had to go one better and buy the 1997 reserve bottle - well, it was less than a tenner more in the airport shop, and I figured it ought to be worth the difference)

I remember that it was Guy and Annick's favorite. I have a photo around here somewhere of Annick in front of the Caviar House in London which was advertising Veuve.

Good birthday present. :)
