I WAS taken out to dinner last night, a fancy, dress-up and wear heels dinner. My darling chose this venue. It’s on the waterfront not far from our home. On our summer evening strolls I look forward to just walking past so I can peer in at the candlelit tables, dressed with crisp white linens and heavy polished cutlery. And, oh the gatherings I’ve seen in there. Family celebrations, lovers enjoying their table for two and quiet conversation … all those shared memories I imagine being made.

Last night’s occasion? Today’s my birthday. I’m 35 and the reason we’re not painting the town red tonight is I'm spending the evening with a bunch of giggly Girl Guides. Together we’ll be cleaning up Australia – a little promise I made to myself months ago.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for somewhere yummy for yourself and can’t make the ferry trip to my hang, then check out Concrete and Honey’s second blog Urban Nectar. And, if heading to Amsterdam anytime soon, you just have to try Pia’s pick.
