birthday weekend ...
Well where do I start, I had such a great weekend.
On Saturday afternoon J and I went into Worthing to search for a birthday present, I had asked for a silver bracelet with black stones and it didn’t take long before we discovered one in Zoo Jewellers, who specialise in silver jewellery, it wasn’t expensive but pretty much what I had envisaged finding, so I am a very happy bunny! Before coming home we had a coffee in Macaris on the seafront, a family run business going back decades, I remember being taken there as a kid in the 1970s by my granny and grandad. J wanted us to have a meal out together in the evening so we decided to walk down to our local sit down Chinese. Prawn crackers, salt & chilli prawns and ribs for starters, followed by beef in black pepper sauce and a Thai chilli duck dish, boiled and egg-fried rice. You won’t believe that I am on a healthy eating campaign but promise to get back on the straight and narrow during the week, luckily we were walking home to burn off just an iota of the calories.
This was a great scene, Ben Stiller's character at an ex-girlfriends wedding sitting on the 'singles' table!
On Sunday the weather wasn’t very kind to us, but we decided to hop on the train into Brighton, even though it was tipping it down with rain, we didn’t let it dampen our spirits and after a brisk walk down from the station we had a quick look around the shops before going on to the Odeon cinema, but first visiting Ben & Jerry’s in the foyer where we both had delicious waffle and ice-cream, and then in to the matinee to see The Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller, we did enjoy the film and laughed many times throughout, but both came to the conclusion that no other Ben Stiller film could quite top Meet The Fockers!
Did you know that you can buy Ben & Jerry's Waffle Cone flavour room spray? zero calories. I was reading an article, apparently one of their waffle cones with a single scoop of ice-cream has as much saturated fat as a portion of ribs, can you believe that, better never have another one ever again!
