….wild is the wind…creative freedom is the seed….
In 1811, John Clarke (d. 1857) of York, architect of the ‘Commercial Buildings’ in Leeds City Centre, was commissioned by Nicholson to design his Mansion House.
We went last night for a quiet and pleasant Birthday super. I was so terribly tired, but overall it was really nice to feel the laid-back pleasant environment with a touch of the old world charm.
I know don’t say it, it was not my intention to color co-ordinate with the decor of the interior….it was totally an accident, I just felt like wearing the lime green with forest green lace. I am not even a “green” person most of the time.
I was so tired, I was falling asleep after 2 hrs…the environment was just really relaxed and charming….
What did I eat?
Let me see:
King Prawns salad with chili
Partridge as a Main with longiberries.
Too tired for Dessert though it looked nice
Hazel nut liquer Coffee to keep me awake! 🙂
I liked the touches of Retro 20s Great Gatsby Mansion style in the historic grounds overlooking Roundhay Park. It is a popular place for local weddings I supposed. There are always some fancy vintage cars parked outside the venue like an old Benz or an old Rolls Royce and stuff….the place has a quiet charm when you catch it in the right moments.In fact I think there was a wedding in the main building last night…I don’t remember…I was too tired to look! 🙂
