We nibbled on tasty canapes including Baby Potatoes with Wasabi Creme Fraiche and Caviar (considering I'm not a huge fan of caviar, this was a surprise); Proscuito wrapped Figs (something I could nibble on anytime); Mint, Olive, Melon and Feta Skewers (lovely on a hot day) and one of my all time faves, Gazpacho served in tall shot glasses. The grande finale was a chocolate fountain- something I previously found to be an odd novelty and wondered why people didn't just do fondue- but will now admit that once that chocolate gets flowing, it's kinda fun to watch and beats losing your fruit in a fondue pot. I patiently stood and waited for the men in white (The Boy and Andrew from Spittoon) to get chocolate drippings on themselves.
I started the day with some nerves but left happy that I had made to effort to leave my cosy pocket in London and make some new friends. Even The Boy enjoyed it- the ultimate stamp of approval in my book!
