Happy weekend everyone! This one is a bit special for me, as my birthday is on Saturday.

The original plan months ago was to make a big night of it with our friends with dinner, dancing and karaoke, but obviously that’s been scrapped now and will have to wait until another time.

I’m honestly still not sure what we’ll be doing that evening, since we planned on ordering a beautiful 3 course meal from Wedgwood, who delivered a memorable meal that made our anniversary last month so special in spite of quarantine.

Wedgwood has been incredibly busy with their service, and they’re taking a well-earned break for this week, so I had to look for an alternative. I was thrilled to learn that another of my favorite restaurants in Edinburgh, Aizle, was going to try a one-off delivery menu this coming weekend, but unsurprisingly to me, it sold out in 15 minutes!

What I do know for sure is that I get to celebrate my next trip around the sun with my husband and a bottle of Bollinger rosé that’s currently chilling in our fridge. I hear Bollinger goes great with pizza 🙂
