Well, we've made it to 3 years without killing one another :-). We had a very sedate celebration on Wednesday night - since Chris was working on Thursday and I had the CWL we didn't think it was a good idea to go out and paint the town red!! (We went out Sat night instead). We had a bottle of bubbly and opened our pressies - I got Chris a beautiful corkscrew that folds up and goes into a leather holder (3rd anniversary is leather) and a wooden alarm clock. The alarm clock is kinda weird in that the surface of it is completely flat yet when it's plugged in the numbers show on the front.....I have no idea how it works but it looks cool!!! Chris got me a gorgeous wooden alphabet stamp set that I have had my eye on for a while (will be great for doing my cards) and a really soft red leather pencil case.....he even got me a retractable pencil and leads (that's my fav type of pencil for drawing with). Moon bought us a huge bouquet of flowers and cooked an amazing meal for us. It was quiet but lovely!! (Gai liked the red bag!!)
We had decided that instead of buying expensive gifts we would go for a very posh meal and spend the money on doing something together so last night we headed over to Silom to eat at a French Restaurant called Indigo. It had been recommended by a Frenchman so we figured that the food would be good - we were not disappointed!!! The restaurant is down a little side soi off Soi Convent and it's tucked away right at the bottom - it's gorgeous. It's got a magical little garden area decorated with little white twinkly lights where you can sit and eat your meal or you can choose to eat inside in the intimate dining room, with its polished wooden floors, subdued lighting and large windows looking onto the courtyard. We chose inside as it looked like it was going to rain (which it did - in buckets!!).
To start with Chris had the Cheese Soufflé surprise (not sure what the surprise was - perhaps the surprise was that there wasn't one!!) which was light and full of cheesy flavour and I had cream of wild mushroom soup which was just divine!! For main course Chris had Duck breast stuffed with apple and wrapped in parma ham which was served with dauphinoise potatoes and I had Beef Stroganoff which came with pasta. We were both absolutely stuffed but had managed to save a wee space to share a plate of profeterols which were to die for (you know the kind that has the rich dark chocolate sauce that cuts through the sweetness of the dish....yum!!). It was a lovely romantic meal.....awwwww :-)
