This weekend was quite a busy and started with payday drinks at work on Friday. One of our colleges had a concert with his band, and a few of us went there to listen to them play and keep the party going. It was a really good evening out, but it did not make Saturday morning the best one. I lack the ability to recover that I used to have.
But after a very slow morning it was time to visit the Irish pub for the rugby game. It was very full and the mood was on top. The combination of St. Patrick’s Day and the fact that Ireland won the Grand Slam at the rugby, made this a very enjoyable afternoon. There was a lot of people out in a lot of weird green clothes and read beards.
After this we went out to a lovely meal at the restaurant called Harry Pepper where we also ate last year for Paddy’s day. This year they have moved their venue, but the food was at least as nice as last year. We went for a three course meal and I had a lovely Gordita, magical ribs and a finish of Churros. I can really recommend this place for eating and drinking. I decided not to go with any of their nice tequila or cocktails.
As the night before was a bit later that planned and because we had a lot of food we just went home quite early. Today I made a nice big breakfast and had a lovely lazy morning, before going for a lovely walk in the crisp winter sunshine. And then it was time for a family dinner at my brother’s new place to celebrate the fact that he has a new apartment and that he had his birthday this week.
