London in the Sky with Lima Floral: Canapés with a View

For one of Michael’s birthday presents I wanted to give him an experience. When I then heard of London in the Sky, and realised that it was taking place in September, it was as if the Gods of Fate had spoken to me. It was perfect.

For the past 3 years my ‘family’ birthday night has meant drinks at Oscar Bar & Restaurant in the Charlotte Street Hotel, followed by dinner at Roka, which, if you are a regular reader, you will know is my favourite restaurant in the whole wide world, and is just a few metres walk away.

Tower 42: Our 3-Year Anniversary

I absolutely cannot believe Michael and I have been together for 3 years. Both because 3 years have flown by at the speed of light, and because I cannot remember him ever not being around, pinching my cheeks, making ridiculous noises and being a general loveable nutcase.
