Let’s just say, last night Nigel surpassed himself with a 19 poppadum pile…….with extra dips and side dishy things…..
…….. followed by a most robust and rapturous round of spontaneous applause from all the attending waiters and fellow diners!!!Darrell managed one and a half poppadums, as he was saving himself for his minty lamb ……..

I think we were home in time to hear Big Ben chime in 2015 and see the fireworks, and I seem to remember Darrell getting a little emotional thinking of Hugh partying somewhere very en trend and romantic in Notting Hill ….. but again, it is all a bit hazy ……. perhaps a little later on today, it might slowly begin to come back to me! But in the meantime ……. HAPPY NEW 2015!!!!
