On the 25th of November 2015, I has weight loss surgery. I underwent a sleeve gastrectomy, also known as a gastric sleeve. It has now been just over 3 months since my surgery and I have lost nearly 30 kg. YAY!
We went for dinner last night at The King’s in Chipping Campden. We love it there, food is always great, as is the service, and the surroundings, well take a look for yourself, just lovely, cosy and warm.
We had 8 courses last night… no, not in total, each. And Oh… Wow… we knew we were in for a treat when we went, but we didn’t know that we, quite literally, would be in for the most wonderful meal we’d ever had… ever. It was THAT amazing for a number of reasons. Firstly, every single course was prepared to absolute perfection. You could image that with 8 courses, there might be a few of them, or certain parts of some at least, that was less to one’s taste than others. No, not so. Every single dish, lovingly and expertly prepared by Head Chef, Ian Percival, was constructed and balanced perfectly, served in a completely unpretentious fashion (this matters, I’m really not one for pretentious food!) and cooked as if he had us in mind.
Over Easter my family and I spent four days in wonderful Cornwall. The whole family, which includes my husband, our two 6-year-old children and me, had a blast in Polperro. There’s something for everyone, every age and every type of traveller.
Wonderful Newquay on the north coast of Cornwall is well-known for being a paradise for surfers. And it is that, not so much for any geographical or natural advantages specifically, but more due to it’s size and location. With 20,000 people living in Newquay, it is the largest town that sits right on the Cornish north coast with it’s abundance of amazing surf spots from Sennen Beach to Bude.
Over Easter 2015 we spent 4 days in wonderful Cornwall. The trip was decided a couple of months in advance, so imagine our delight when we saw that the weather was due to turn from the wet and grey we’ve had for the past 6 or so months, to wonderful sunshine on the very day we were arriving.
I’m Danish, my husband is English. As we live in England, our kids are very much little English people and I’m not proud to admit that I have not been very good at sharing all the wonderful Danish traditions.. except one: Danish Christmas!
