Sky Garden

 Well , I am on the way home again.
It's been a fantastic 24 hours.
Nuala ( Nu) as usual made my visit special....even down to bagging the best table at the Sky Garden's restaurant by stating that it was my 40 th birthday. The hostess , polite as she was didn't batter an eyelid ( as when have I ever looked 40? Even when I was 30 I didnt look 40) and the cute as a button waiter brought us two tiny chocolate cakes and a candle which we laughed over until we wept.
 It was lovely to touch base and it was lovely to recharge with a best friend of some 26 years.....
The best time

  4. Old friends are the best ones - as comfortable as carpet slippers... but not as smelly nor are they covered in bulldog saliva.

  6. Sometimes a day like that is exactly what you need.
    Glad you had a good time and can now sit back and relax - if the dogs let you of course...

  9. That is so lovely! I had dinner in London with my best friend at school- we drifted apart after that but 30 plus years later, we spent a long and hilarious and fun night together and it could have gone on for days! Friends really do make the world go around :)

  16. I envy you that eternal friendship, renewed faithfully across the years and miles. And somehow, Slappy Birthday better represents that first photo than the more traditional greeting would.

  24. I can say with absolute confidence that you don't look one day over 40. :-)

  25. Of course you look 40 ... if you squint into the sun, with one eye shut AND you have your back to us .... you do look 40 ;-)

    Everyone should have a friend like NU, you treasure each other just as you should. Lovely to see you having so much fun. xx
