What A Great Weekend.

Friday started well with me managing to run 2 miles. I have only just started running and so this is a milestone (pardon the pun) and I feel very pleased with myself.

Friday evening Victoria and I went to see Spandau Ballet at the Sheffield arena. This was my wedding anniversary present to Victoria and myself and we had a great time. They were brilliant and essentially sang all the old hits with just one new song. Exactly what people wanted to hear!

Saturday night I decided to cook for Victoria and I as Sunday was our 7th wedding anniversary. I cooked Sea Trout wrapped in parma ham with a salad coated in a vinaigrette I made for a starter. It was really nice. For a main I cooked beef fillet with a mushroom gratin, sauteed potatoes (cooked with garlic, rosemary and butter) and creamy spinach with horseradish. It was really good. I was very pleased with myself. The beef was VERY rare. Just how I like it.

Victoria and I then sat up until 3am drinking wine and talking while listening to music. A great night spent with my lovely wife.

Sunday was our wedding anniversary. Seven years have flown by. We were feeling a little tired having been woken up by rug rats at about 7am and decided that a day doing nothing was required, which is exactly what we did.

Just to finish off the weekend we watched Jenson Button win the F1 world championship (see below) in Brazil. What a great ending to the weekend and the F1 championship.

Unfortunately all this excess means I feel rather groggy and bloated today. This mornings run was no fun at all! :-) It was of course well worth it.

Happy anniversary Victoria. I love you. :-)
