I forgot to mention that the outing to Chilli Pickle in Brighton was part of our ongoing celebration of our ruby wedding year.  Going out for a ruby (Ruby Murray - geddit?!).

The actual day, a month or so back, was spent in an open air restaurant on the bridge over the Bosphorus.  Here's the waiter filleting a seabass.  Note I also got some chips as it was a special occasion.

We then had a family celebration, making our own sushi

and then eating the result with a good supply of Asahi and a nice bottle of sake.

What next?!  Lucky it only comes round 2 or 3 times in a lifetime.


  1. More gastronomic delights!! I like your way of celebrating!! Oh....and congratulations!!

  2. On our ruby anniversary I told Old Man he was supposed to get me a ruby. He said he went down to the pub but Ruby wouldn't come home with him. So I went out and bought myself a pair of ruby ear studs. I love them. It's a good thing I don't take offence easily.

  3. We don't very often buy 'things' for each other now; too much junk in the house already. But outings together are always great.
