An enjoyable New Year’s Eve party last night at which I stayed over. Close friends who live not too far. There were 7 of us and the hosts laid on a 4-course meal. By the end of the evening we’d consumed 5 bottles of champagne/fizz and 5 bottles of wine. Not actually that much considering we kicked off around 7.45pm and didn’t go to bed until about 2.30am.
The food was lovely. Started with soup, then a fish pie and a steak pie. Chocolate puddings for dessert then a cheese board.
I woke in the early hours with quite bad acid indigestion which I’m firmly blaming on the champagne, prosecco and brut bottles that were drunk. Much as I love the stuff, if I drink too much it seems to keep fizzing in my stomach.
We got up around 10am and the hosts laid on a full English breakfast which was exactly what the doctor ordered. Scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, potato cakes, hash browns and baked beans.
S and I left around noon and headed on to Greenwich for a walk. A stunningly bright, sunny beautiful day though bitterly cold and I didn’t really have a warm enough coat though did have a scarf. We went to the Queen’s House (as it’s called), also the Painted Hall and up to the Royal Observatory which gives great views over (eastern) central London. A lot of people were out and about.
Hope everyone had a good New Year’s Eve and here’s hoping we all have a good 2010!!!
