Hello. I hope you all had a pleasant evening last night? I know I did.
I met my friend Caron at waterloo train station. After a slight delay on the train (nothing unusual there) and scurrying along the pavement, underneath umbrellas (even less unusual for it to be raining), we entered the nearest, suitable pub (and that was no surprise either!). Oh it was lovely to see her. The sofa with-the-window-view was sat on, and our 'life updates' were exchanged, while consuming a glass of white and a glass of red.
“Shall we have another one?” I enquired after the first glass. But I was informed that the boyfriend was roasting potatoes for our dinner, and a bottle of white was awaiting our arrival. What more could a girl ask for?
Off to her house we trekked, grateful that the rain had finally stopped, so there was no need for me to use my £2 umbrella. The bargain £2 umbrella which I had purchased that very morning. The bargain £2 umbrella which is now falling apart. That’s why it was so cheap. I knew there had to be a catch somewhere along the line - it only lasts for 24 hours.
At my friends house, the wine bottle was opened and a very tasty dinner was appreciated and enjoyed. Blogging and our forthcoming weekend to Devon was discussed. I am literally counting the days until the weekends adventure. Visiting our mutual Devon friend, and the sea and a Mexican restaurant are on the agenda for this weekend. Roll on Saturday.
And isn’t it great having a blog?! Otherwise my friend would not have known my passion for chocolate strawberry creams. For on her shelf, beautifully arranged, there was a display of chocolate strawberry creams. All for me! What a treat.
And how fast do you think I ate them? The answer is, fast enough thank you. They were a strawberry cream dream.
