A Bargain Frock

And a bargain meal.

We went out for a meal on Saturday night. Just the two of us, for my husband's birthday.

 My mum had organised it. She babysat, paid for a taxi and gave us the money for the meal as a present for hubby. 

The restaurant is a very popular one around here, but also a little pricey so we were very grateful. Unfortunately, we were kept waiting for our meal for almost an hour as they had a very large party in just before us. It didn't matter one jot to us as we had no kids and made the most of the time chatting and laughing. However , the knock on effect meant that there was no time for pudding as the taxi was due. The manager very kindly decided that that wasn't acceptable and wiped the whole bill! 

So we are going back in a months time for  rerun, hopefully with pudding.

I wore my bargain Karen Millen dress that I picked up last year from e.bay. It is a wool mix and I love wearing it. I wore it with my knee high Fly boots as the restaurant is an old building and often a little cold.
