My family and I go out to eat quite regularly. I don't normally find it blogworthy. But it has been one of those weekends. One of those weekends where you shake your head at the evil in the world. One of those weekends where you appreciate your life a bit more than usual. One of those weekends where you hold your little ones a bit tighter.
So after a lazy day at home on Saturday, we decided we needed to go out for a family dinner. We decided to try out the new Pizza Express on the high road. The kids enjoyed dough balls and pizza from the kids' menu. Husband tried the new calzone, which was yummy. I decided to go for two starters rather than a main - risotto and calamari, and enjoyed both. Husband finished his meal with the honeycomb cheesecake, which was amazing, while I had the sundae. It was a lovely meal, without any tantrums (though Dubz did screech when the waitress took away his garlic butter).
It was a an ordinary moment, but enjoyed a bit more than usual. We are so lucky in so many ways. I hope you all are enjoying your weekends and feeling grateful for all the things we are lucky enough to take for granted.
