Lets have a party!

Saturday , children having fun with their grandparents , and DH and I go into Glasgow. A perusal of the shops , and a couple of glasses of Chardonnay in Roganos' followed by a meal at Dhabba , and I felt like I had been away for a fortnight at a spa! Roganos'Oyster Bar (to give it its full name) is a Glasgow institution , the inside is like the restaurant of a large Liner, as it opened not long after the Queen Mary Ship was launched , in the 1930's . And it is STRICTLY for the grownups! Dhabba, is a wonderful Indian restaurant (No Chicken Maryland or Gammon steak served here), and the food is DIVINE .
We were invited to our friends daughters Baptism on Sunday . The service was lovely , short , and full of the noise of children, which is how it should be . Although the parents requested no gifts , a few knitty items did find there way into a bag for them to take home . It was another lovely day, catching up with friends , and seeing DHs' God-daughter, who is still undergoing treatment at Yorkhill. A very brave two year old indeed.
The little Kimono jacket (Debbie Bliss) knitted by my sister for little Jo, for her christening. The Hat is knitted in fyberspates alpalca/merino , by me, for her big sister Ellie .

It looks like a good time was had by all ! And the odd adults only day out is such a treat when you can get it isn't it ? :0)

It does sound like you had a lovely time. We keep saying we'll do the "grown-up" thing and have a meal out, but usually we struggle to find the time. However we have decided that on the 21st we must make the effort as it'll be our 18-month wedding demi-versary! I'd love to visit Glasgow. Perhaps the next time we're up in Scotland we'll pay it a visit :)
