Food with Friends

The weekend was hectic, but special.  
Special because it included lots of her favourite friends.

Sophie, J & K came for lunch on Friday. 
Over soup, bread and cake they chatted,
and shared a few memories.
J bought a present.
A beautiful bag that she had knitted.  
She had remembered that VJ had admired one months before.
What a lovely friend.
Little man had made a sign.
Just in case they didn't know where to go!
On Saturday her oldest and bestest came for dinner, 
with her man and her gorgeous girl.
They ate, talked and laughed from 7pm to 2am the following morning!
They woke late on Sunday, with sore heads!
Little man made a 'snail pie' - no snails were harmed in the making of this pie ...

The Slovaks came for dinner.
In a cosy kitchen, around a big table.
With birthday cake and candles.
Happy Birthday J.

Old friends, new friends, good friends.
Cherished friends.

Friends who get who she is.

In my eyes there's nothing better than eating with your friends and catching up Jane so I'm so glad to hear that you had such a great pair of days, I love the bag that your friend knitted for you, it's so thoughtful and reminds me of all the wonders of friendship. The toilet sign is so cute too.

The hand knitted bag is so cute. It is such a talent when one knows how to knit and crochet. What is that delightful food on here? It looks so yummy. How nice it is to catch up with our friends.
