two stone lighter

i've just recovered from last night. from 7.30 until 10.00 we were hammered. i lost about two stone of water during the night because the whole resaturant was boiling hot. that was strange because the night was foul but the combination of lots of people coming in slightly damp, the heavy atmosphere and the numbers of people meant that it was not the most comfortable night. the dish of the night was the hardest to plate, the tomato gateau (more to come soon) and that doesn't help for a smooth service. one table had too long a wait, which i discussed with them at the end of the evening, and we sent them on their way with some mint for an impromptu pimm's party that they were having later.

the bad news is that the two stone was back when i woke this morning.

ah well
