Well I officially passed the mid twenties mark this weekend, having reached the ripe old age of 25. I feel more mature already.
I celebrated with my wife, my dad and his wife. We had a lovely day in the sun with a couple of drinks at the Marriot in Breadsall and The Abbey in Darley Abbey – great place for a sunny afternoon drink.
We then visited Darley’s restaurant, and I have to say had probably one of the greatest meals of my life.
The pricing does reflect the quality of the place, but while many restaurants producing this type of high class food might get above themselves (with snooty waiters snorting in discontent at you – a lowly imbecile that doesn’t know what a talagio bon-bon is), Darley’s manage to keep their feet firmly on the ground… which is handy for reaching the hob I imagine.
A leisurely three courses with wine, coffee and petit-fours was a wonderful way to wave goodbye to 24.
