JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

STK, Aldwych

Guess who got a little bit older this weekend? The gorgeous CG. He requested a smart blazer for his "last splurge birthday present" before we get serious about oh, I dunno, maybe saving for a house or a car or something of worth. So after a few hours wandering (successfully) through Selfridges working up an appetite, it was time to really celebrate.

Thinking it would be warming up a little since his birthday is well into Spring, I crazily booked dinner at a place with access to a rooftop bar. Let's just say, we didn't last long in the 0 degree temps. Luckily, the inside of Radio Rooftop Bar was just as cool as the outside. 

Cocktails suitably downed, we headed down to STK for dinner. 

With a DJ spinning tunes in the corner, plush seating and cool lighting, dinner was like eating in a very chilled club - which is thankfully right up the CG's alley.

I'm ashamed to say I couldn't finish my short rib. Everything was melt in the mouth delicious, from the bread to the lobster mac and cheese - I wish I'd been sober enough to ask for a doggy bag.

I couldn't even remember noting it was the CG's birthday on the reservation, but out came a special dessert surprise. Shy as ever, the CG patiently waited for me warble out a birthday tune before blowing out his candle. 

After dinner we retired to the bar for more cocktails...which somehow resulted in us belting out karaoke into the night. Yep. Just the two of us. Age ain't nothing but a number. TRUTH.
