An anniversary and a trip to Silversmiths (Sheffield).

15.9.13

Jonathan and I met at work but were too shy to talk to each other most of the time. Thankfully there's such a thing as Facebook and Jonathan was brave enough to add me as a "friend". Although we rarely spoke at work we soon became good virtual "friends". On a Friday night I would rush home and hope he would send me a message online.

This led to us spending most weekends chatting back and forth, sending each other funny video clips, trying to make the other laugh, and finding out all about each other until we were brave enough to go out in real life.


3 years ago today Jonathan and I went out as friends for the first time. We ate dinner and saw Inception at the cinema as I really wanted to see it but had no-one to go with (Jonathan had already seen it). We had such a good time that we went out again the following evening and saw each other again at the weekend, when he cooked me an amazing roast dinner where I exclaimed that his roast potatoes were "a party in my mouth" (not a euphemism). Soon after we decided to become girlfriend/boyfriend and the rest is history.

Last night we went out for tea at a place called Silversmiths in Sheffield where we tucked into three courses and a few drinks (I had to stick to the non alcoholic cocktails as I was driving but the two I tried were delicious!) In fact, we were both really impressed with the whole meal and Jonathan was more than happy with the selection of ales on offer.

After our disasterous trip to Ed's diner last weekend where we were both underwhelmed with the shockingly bad burgers and chips (taking into account the steep prices) we were ready for some really good grub and we weren't disappointed.


Everything tasted amazing and was really well seasoned. Portion sizes were good without being overfacing and the service we received was attentive and quick.

We arrived at 6.30pm which meant we got to choose the "early bird" offer which gives a substantial saving against the regular prices which are quite expensive. That said however, the prices definitely reflect the quality of the food especially the meat (if you like to know where your meat has come from then you can't go far wrong with Silversmiths. They support local farmers so all of the meat served is hand reared and high welfare).

After an early start that morning we were both ready to head home, hit the sofa and put our feet up with a good film. Jonathan only made it half way through the film before he nodded off, and with Lily and Lola snoring away too there was only me still standing!


Hopefully there are many more anniversaries to come :)
