Off to the Boulevard Brasseriê for Viv's 40th Birthday. Met her and Anson and Jackie in the downstairs bar which was
having a happy hour. Gradually folks arrived, Chris and Theo, Wendy, Kate, Jenny, Hazel, Rita, Becky, a number
of Viv's neighbours then we went upstairs to be seated and I was joined by Mike and Susan and Alison, At my
end of the table, the deal was for 3 courses with a glass of champagne for £15 which was very good value. I
had duck and gammon and crème brulee, they didn't do too bad a job of serving to a group of twenty people
either. It was good to catch up with folks I hadn't seen for quite a while. Finally left the restaurant about 11PM
and walked with Rita and Wendy back to temple.
