I’ve had a lovely day today. A productive few hours working this morning and then out for lunch with a dear friend of mine. Sheila is a retired consultant paediatrician and will be 70 on her next birthday. She’s been a family friend for over 20 years and now although we don’t meet often, it is very special when we do. Today we had almost two years’ worth of news to catch up on so it was a leisurely lunch of three hours. My favourite kind.
I wore my Amelia Dress by Allium B. It’s from last Spring and is incredibly versatile so have worn it a lot. I wore it last Easter with bare legs and yellow heels. Today I wore it with opaque tights, heeled ankle boots and a black velvet jacket.
The beaded collar is so beautiful
And today’s pop of yellow was courtesy of my bag
We lunched at Breda Murphy’s in Whalley.
We both ordered chicken and coconut curry with fragrant basmati rice from the specials menu.
And how beautiful is Sheila’s dessert? Plum crumble with stem ginger ice-cream.
And I opted for “Mammy’s Christmas Pudding” with brandy butter and vanilla anglaise.
Everything tasted as good as it looked.

Breda Murphy's is a favourite of mine. Our most recent visit was just before Christmas when we couldn't resist the traditional Christmas lunch. All delicious and Mammy's Christmas Pudding was memorable! Wonderful food!
