hApPY nEw YEaR!
hope you all had a fun-filled evening. ours was pretty quite to be fair. we are currently at coombe mill, which i’m sure you know already! fiona and nick set up a little gathering by the bbq shed, a shed with a bbq grill inside so you can bbq all year round, how epic is that?! i really really want one however it is the size of our whole garden so maybe not. there were snacks and some bottles of boozy plonk to swig at and just before 8 o’clock nick lit and set off a lantern for matilda mae. once tildas lantern was safely on its way nick launched a display of fireworks for us all to welcome the new year.
rooster attentions were elsewhere, he had made a new friend, her name is amelia, just like his great-grandmother, nanny minnie. they played for quite some time together all evening in fact, and by the end of the evening she was quite casually inviting him over for a sleep over and that he should bring enough clothes for a few days! ha ha ha
it was late already for rooster and at 10pm we headed back to our cottage. for us the evening continued cosied up in front of the fire whilst supping prossecco and red wine whilst watching hootenany. rock n roll!
for new years day we had booked in advance to have a new years day meal at fifteen cornwall, down at watergate bay. we had been worried by the weather warning the day before that we wouldn’t make it, but looking out the window, yes it was raining, a heavy drizzle, but nothing like the severe warnings that we had seen the previous night. so after a lazy morning was dressed, we got in the car and made our way over to our new years day treat.
and what a treat it was, i would definatley go back it was de.li.cious. the staff were great, the service impeccable, the food fantastic and the view mesmermerizing.
and i ate…
on the left campanelle of longhorn rib ragu and horseradish gremolata. on the right vanilla panna cotta, poached plums and cantuccini. they looked like this, i can’t even begin to explain how blooming good they both tasted.
we ate our lunch watching the tide come in over watergate bay, it was beautiful.
