Good for you!
Take it out of the fridge an hour before you want to cook it.
Season it all over with salt and pepper.
Pre heat oven to about 230 deg C.
Put in oven, uncovered in a roasting pan for 25 minutes.
Turn oven down to 160 deg C and cook for a further 44 minutes (rare), 66 minutes (medium), 88 minutes (well done).
Take out of oven and leave to rest covered with tinfoil and a couple of towels for 20 minutes.
Carve and serve.
There are other methods, timings and temperatures but the above works for me.
No harm in slicing an onion into a few chunky rings and sitting the meat on top of them so the hot air can circulate under the meat.
