Three Long Years...

Yesterday it woz our anniversary. :)

The proceedings actually started a little earlier than that, though, as I didn't go to choir on Tuesday night. This was because (a) I'd forgotten my music, and (b) I was coughing a lot and decided I'd rather save my voice for Sunday's concert. Admittedly, we have a 'sick bay' for people who can't sing, but (c) I was also knackered. So, instead we went out for a meal, starting in the Windsor for drinks, another in the Yard of Ale, and then onto Del Villagio in the Bull Ring just to give it a try.

I had the seafood starter, which was very nice. It was a typical 'fruits du mer' type deal, with mussells, prawns, calamari and langostines... I think that's what they're called, anyway - those little baby lobster things. All delicious, although I had to get Paul to extract the meat from the lobster things for me because as soon as I picked it up I had a minor freak out. EYES AND A HEAD, not to mention legs. I don't like my food judging me. :P The meat itself was absolutely gorgeous, mind you...

Paul had a safer starter of tomato and mozzarella... Our mains were also delicious; Paul had the 'del villagio' pizza and I had a carbonara.

We ended the night by watching Snatch, which meant I was entitled to do the film-infliction the day after...

I now have no more leave booked until January, so it's back to proper full weeks at work as of next week. Luckily, there's a bank holiday soon. ;) I might book some leave for June, I think...

As for the credit card, it took a bit of a battering yesterday, but as it's a joint card at least we're both paying it off. Once some of what's already gone on there is paid off, I'm going to get a new camera...
