It’s always good to catch up with friends, especially when it’s ones you don’t see very often. Today I met up with a close friend who is originally from Glasgow, but who has lived in England for a number of years now, so we only see each other a few times each year.
Whenever we meet up we always make a point of making sure we’ve plenty of time to shop – even if neither of us have anything in particular we’re looking to buy. After all, half the fun is in the looking rather than the buying….and it’s much cheaper! Although I’ll admit it, we both did buy a few things today!
Although we keep in touch with each other, we always still have a lot to catch up on. Not only that but we always end up reminiscing about some of the things we got up to or done in the past which is always a good laugh. I know it’s not always good to look back on things, but there are exceptions and that’s when you’re looking back on some good times, it really does lift your spirits…it certainly did mine today!
After we did our usual wander round the shops, we always go for some dinner. Today, as we have the last few times we’ve met up, we went Frankie and Benny’s for some food and a further blether. We ended up in Frankie and Benny’s for hours…and no we weren’t eating the whole time! It ended up about 9.30pm before we finally left F&B’s to head for home.
Great company. Great friend. Great food. Great shopping. An all round fabulous day…even if I am now totally exhausted!
