well as u would know we went out for dinner last night. we were suppose to meet up with a friend i went to school with but she cancelled at the last minute because her son was sick. so mick and i went out anyway. we went to our fave italian restaurant. we shared a cheesy garlic bread entree and a jug of coke between us. then i had this thing called chicken milano. *drool* it was served on bed of tagliatelle pasta and it was a creamy chicken breast in a mushroom and capsicum sauce. then we had to wait AN HOUR for our bloody bill, and in the end we got up and went to the front desk and i said to them 'we couldve just walked out without paying and you wouldnt even know'. we should have! had to wait another 20 minutes for them to bring the bill to us at the front counter. then the restaurant is next to a club where i used to work so we went in there and bumped into micks very well off cousins whose wedding we went to back in 2005 at taronga zoo (same place bec and lleyton had their reception). so we had a quick chat to them and mick had a beer and i had a water. and then we got dessert- ice cream. and played some keno and went on the censored for 5 minutes. and then we played the chocolate machine but we only won a fun sized twirl. on the way out of the club i saw the new krispy kreme doughnuts shop that has recently opened there and i pined for a doughnut but changed my mind! i had eaten so much already!

anyway i had a great night out and a good break from my little one and i just thought i would confess just to show people that even once you reach your goal there will be special occasions where you need to enjoy yourself.

Oooh sounds like a really nice night out Kate. An hour for the bill!! That is terrible service. Too many places just don't know how to give you good service.

Absolutley right. They don't get tips if the service isn't good. Maybe they were hoping you would order another meal and that is there strategy. Keep 'em in here until they want more food.

Oh and here is something to watch out for. When they come and ask you if you want dessert almost immediately after taking your dinner plates. This is a strategy as if they leave you 20 mins or more you will realise you are full and don't need any dessert. I had a friend actually get told this by a waitress...that it was what they were told to do.

It sounds like you had a lovely night Kate (apart from the crappy service). It is great to take some time off and let loose every now and again. I have my best friend arriving here in about a week and a half. She will be here for two weeks, and we will probably let loose a couple of times in that time as my birthday is on while she is here. I am not going to worry about it. I will leave the kids with Aunty Lolly, and go and eat, drink and kick my heels up - it has been about 4 1/2 months since I did it anyway. :D

Judy :D

Thats right poor Aunty Lolly gets the kids and doesn't get to go out :cry:

At least if they misbehave I have heaps of places to bury small bodies at my new house :lol:

Kate, I would write a letter of complaint to the owner of the restaurant for the poor service - they at least need to know that your dining experience wasn't up to par with the food so they can kick the waitresses in the shins and tell them to lift thier game a bit. AND, the bonus of that is, quite often you will get invited back for a freebie dinner as well :wink:

Ally, you don't know the half of it. Julia and I have a ball when we are out. We really do know how to paint the town red, and we haven't been out since before I moved in the beginning of December, so we have some catching up to do :lol:
