Catching Up

Two of my best friends from school came to visit me today and we had spent such a lovely, girly day together. Over the past couple of years we've all been so busy with the different directions our lives have taken us in, we don't manage to spend as much time together as we would like, which makes me really sad. One of the faces you might recognise from my vlogs (Lissie!) but Jane and I really don't see each other much at all these days, so today was extra special and really reminded me that old friends truly are the best!

Here are a few pics of what we got up to...
The girls arrived at 11am. We agreed not to eat breakfast, and that Lissie was going to bring brunch with her instead. She cooked blueberry pancakes and bacon with fresh fruit and lots of maple syrup - it was delicious, and definitely a treat!



We then took the opportunity to take the dogs for a walk while the sun was shining in between rain showers and sat by the side of a lake and chatted for ages about old times, new adventures and all the best things in life.




We then headed over to a nearby stately home for champagne afternoon tea which was so lovely and relaxing.






I think today was my favourite day of 2014 so far. Spending time with my old friends is one of my most favourite things to do!

  8. Ahhh this sounds like the perfect day. Nothing better than catching up with the special people in your life. I love it when you have "that" friend where it doesn't matter if you haven't seen them in years it still feels so easy and natural when your around them. Lovely little post Fleur x

  29. Aww I loved this so much. I completely understand how it is like not seeing close friends for so long! It is hard when everyone has "grown up," but it also the best when everything is just like old times and it is as if no time has went by. I definitely cherish the moments when I get to see the friends that I may not get to see as often. Lovely post and that tea place looks so good especially with the sweet treats! I wish there were more places like that where I live in the states..and your friends looks like a good cook too!

  92. Catching up with old friends is the best and if the friendship survives the years spent apart, with nothing but your friendship to hold you together because the common things (like school) are gone, it's true friends you have there :)
    Also, the pictures you tokk are so beautiful!
