Last weekend I went to the Cotswolds to stay with my three best friends from school. We haven’t all spent time together since July 2012 because Jenny is in Leeds, Carol in Paris and Helen is in Melbourne. Since I last saw her, Helen has even had a baby who is now almost 9 months old. She was back in the UK to organise things for her wedding in November so, in a rare treat, we’ll get to see each other twice this year!
We stayed in a lovely cottage that Helen and her fiancé had rented for the duration of their stay. It had 4 bedrooms so we each had our own, a large kitchen, an even larger lounge and a big family dining table. It was so comfortable and relaxing, we immediately felt at home and it made it even harder to leave.
Whilst we were sat enjoying a leisurely breakfast on Sunday morning, Carol noticed a number of decorative signs up to the wall with inspirational phrases. One of them, a quote from Art Buchwald, was so relevant to our meet-up that I felt I needed to record it so I won’t forget!
