The other evening I had a, really, lovely catch up with a very good friend.
We haven’t seen each other much, for a while for a whole list of reasons (pretty much, totally, my fault, I have to add) so it was really nice to just sit and chat for a few hours (5 hours I think, in total, just a few!)
It’s, actually, been so long that we haven’t seen each other since before Xmas, so he also brought an Xmas gift And a birthday gift for me!
This beautiful edition of ‘Grimms Complete Fairy Tales’ which I really want to look through but also, really, don’t want to take out of the plastic!
And this gorgeous cushion featuring a design from an artist that I love ‘Victoria Frances’ who draws these, beautiful, gothic characters.
I have to say I feel like a very very lucky person, considering I feel like such a bad friend for not having seen him for so long.
There’s a lot of people that I’ve drifted apart from, over the years, but the friends that I do have left that I’m still close to, are really wonderful people – Seeing my friend, and seeing the thought he put into these gifts, reminds me of that. And it also reminds me that, although I’ve not seen some of my friends much recently, it’ll be so easy to just pick up where we left off once we do get a chance to see each other again!
