David Waddington's Birthday dinner

The Actor and I went to our very good friend David's Birthday dinner in the Oak Room at his restaurant Bistrotheque last night.  It was a very relaxed evening and it was wonderful to catch up with all our gorgeous friends.

Birthday boy David.  His Mario Testino T shirt says 'How difficult it must be not to be Peruvian.'  Quite.

We dined on a delicious poached trout salad with fennel, avocado, capers and crispy onions

Some excellent ham, salami, cornichons, homemade piccalilli and bread

Katie Grand, Liz Collins and Lee Jenkins

We were then given hammers and a crab each, I had forgotten to take pictures so Pablo Leon de la Barra very kindly emailed me some...

We made a right mess with the crabs and people were tucking their napkins into their collars whilst bits of crab flew all over the place.

Thank God they got rid of the tablecloths!  Look at the state of the place, it was carnage!

Tom had made some absolutely delicious macaroni cheese which went down so quickly even Pablo didn't get a picture quickly enough.  I think this dish should be on Bistrotheque's menu permanently.  Sometimes only white carbs will do.

Birthday cake - a dense dark chocolate truffle cake with clotted cream.  Yum!

Nicky Bradbury and her Giles dinosaur bag

Lots of people went off for a dance at Horsemeat Disco.  Being a bit of a Nana these days I didn't go, instead we popped back to Giles for a nightcap, as we were getting into the cab I spotted

Editor-in-Chief of Arena homme plus, Jo-Ann Furniss's gorgeous Azzedine Alaia boots

Thank you to David for a fabulous evening.
Happy Birthday my darling

Looks like a great time. I love clotted cream, but do you know nobody makes it here in the States? It's been over 20 years since I've had any. I lived in Wolverhampton for a summer in 1984.

Love to you,

Dear Ruth, he always seems to find a moustache! I think my camera flash makes people's hair redder. There's a pic on here of me at Belinda's birthday and my hair looks ginger. There's lots of pics of Lulu on here for reference xx

Dear Simone, It made me laugh, I wonder if there are any Peruvian's wearing them? You too xx

Dear Young at Heart, I'll be your friend on here! I love reading your blog, you write so well. Wish I could! xx

Dear Belle, thank you. We've had rather too much practice! xx

Dear Dash, aren't they fab, I love Azzedine. I really enjoyed reading your answers. I find out we have more in common daily xx
