Right we’re off. Today is the day of our summer party, a day in which we take some time out form working and relax, yay!
When originally planning our summer party, we intended to have a nice outdoors picnic, with a BBQ or a hog roast, and generally have fun and games in the sun. As the date of the party approached however, it quite quickly became obvious that we couldn’t rely on the weather one iota – we’ve had the cloudiest most miserable summer this year, with downpours nearly every day. Sad panda face.
Instead of our picnic party then, we opted to find somewhere indoors to eat nice food and have fun, rain or shine. Of course typically the day of the party is here, and is apparently going to be ‘the hottest day of the year’ with temperatures reaching 30c…. there isn’t a cloud in the sky! Typical, eh?
Personally I’m not bothered, because in about an hour we’re all getting on a coach and heading off to Bray, the very heart of Michelin Star country. Here we shall be feasting on a seven course lunch at the Hinds Head – A Gastro pub owned by Heston Blumenthal, TV chef supreme known for his ‘molecular gastronomy’, and owner of the world famous Fat Duck restaurant, which is just next door.
So have a nice day whilst we’re gone, maybe you can enjoy the sun for us, get us a bit of surrogate sunburn. We’ll be stuffing ourselves full of great grub. Ciao!
