Alex is starting his work on this Wednesday, and his company will be holding their 20th anniversary ball on the coming Friday. There will also be a free night stay at the hotel provided, and he will be bringing me along as his partner.
A splendid old manor house set in parkland and
formal gardens in beautiful Hertfordshire countryside
Victorian feel in decor
I don’t think the room that we will get looks like this
Although not required to pay for it, we will still have to fork out money for the train tickets and most importantly, to get our formal attire ready. I need an evening or cocktail dress, a pair of matching heels, clutch and accessories, and they are sooooooo freaking expensive here. 🙁 Sometimes I hate formal occasions, but I will still be joining them – always an excuse to shop and a chance to prettify myself.
Anyway, someone promises to pay for me if they are in affordable range….. lalala~~~~
Here comes the weird menu:
Freshly made Soup (tomato and coriander)
Smoked Duck with Mango Salsa
Stuffed Saddle of Lamb with Spinach and Pine Nuts
Baked Goats Cheese in Spring Roll Pastry, drizzled with Sweet and Sour Garlic
Main Courses are served with Seasonal Vegetables and potatoes appropriate to each dish
Sticky Toffee Pudding and Butterscotch Sauce
