OK, so where did Christmas and New Year go?? It all seemed to be over before it began! I had a quiet family Christmas with just the four of us, and an even quieter New Year. My mum and I toasted it with a sip of Baileys – well actually mine was quite a large sip, on the rocks!
And then the birthdays began… It all starts on January 2nd with one of my best friend's birthday, then I have my sister on the 5th, my niece Rachel on the 6th, my daughter Sophie on the 8th and niece Toogie on the 9th – what a week!
It was a big birthday for Sophie this year as she turned 21, and you wouldn't believe the difficulty we had in finding a boxed 21st birthday card. I know what you're thinking, I should've paid more attention to Dawn Bibby, then I could've made one myself!
Sophie didn't have a party as she and her best friend had a bit of a do for their 18th's, so we opted to take her out to dinner instead. I don't eat out in London that much so was wondering where to take her when I remembered a really nice Italian restaurant we visited in Manchester during our 'Search for a Presenter' auditions.
Luckily it has a sister restaurant in Knightsbridge called Signor Sassi. I booked it, and just to be sure, checked online to see what kind of reviews it had.
Imagine my surprise to discover that Lulu had celebrated her BIG birthday there last year. If it's good enough for Lulu then it's good enough for me! We had a lovely evening with attentive staff and tasty food – I wonder, have any of you eaten there?
See you all soon,
