Last meal of 2007 with David and Val

We went to the Falcon at Fotheringhay with David and Val together with Val's Mum and Dad, Mike and Rose.

The drive over there was atrocious - rain, rain and more rain..and it got worse once we were inside.

The food was very good, although the service was a tad slow. They forgot our dessert wines and they didn't seem to want to take our money! :)

On the plus-side, we had a superb view of the Church in Fotheringhay from our table - it was lit-up beautifully. Also, to Val's surprise yhey must have overheard us talking about the fact that it was Val's birthday - dessert arrived with the biggest candle on it I've ever seen. I say 'candle' - it was more like a firework!!!

The drive back was easier although somehow, Val managed to get back before David and he left before us.

We were knackered, so we declined coffee and headed straight for bed. I think we got back around 10.45 pm.
