Happy New Year Again! Monday January 5, 2009, 6 comments

Yes, I know it’s a few days late, but I haven’t been spending the holidays online, you know?

It’s going to be a good year. It’s certainly already started that way for me. Sarah and I got married on Saturday, and it was a really great day. My family were there, and my kids look very fancy in their dress clothes. Sarah looked lovely.

The dinner was fantastic – I highly recommend the restaurant to everyone. It’s called Cafe la Gaffe, and it’s just around the corner from the AGO, on Baldwin street. Have the rainbow trout, it’s fantastic.

It was really nice having Sarah’s family here for the holidays and the wedding too. Her parents flew here from Glasgow for Christmas, and her brother and his family arrived on Boxing Day from Poland. Ever seen a bilingual four-year-old? It’s incredibly cute.

Anyway, it’s shaping up to be a good year.

Congrats, buddy!

And I’ll second your recommendation of Cafe la Gaffe. Such an awesome place to eat. I miss working in my old location, which was much closer to this great gem.

Cafe la Gaffe is just… awesome.
