Afternoon out with the ladies

Today was one of those rare occasions when I got to spend some time with my girl friends. There are four of us who are close friends but as we have got older and have our own homes to look after, we see each other less and less. This afternoon I went round one of my friends house for an afternoon of watching the Sex and The City film with home baked cakes, lots of tea and a cosmopolitan. My day started with a trip to the local supermarket in the rain and then baking pecan pie. I cheated on the pastry making and brought some “Jus Roll” as I didn’t really have time to make that as well. So I spent an hour baking and then rushing round to my friends house, who luckily lives a couple of streets away. Between the four of us we had home-made cup cakes and scones with jam. A friend brought some chocolate brownies as well. With smoked salmon sandwiches to start with and a cup of tea it felt like we were at a posh hotel for afternoon tea. After a bit of chatting to catch up on all the news we watched the film. This is the second time I have seen it and it is still a great film second time round. Some films you just can’t watch twice.

Half-way through the film we decided to have a quick break and I made Cosmopolitans. I had taken my martini glasses, spirits, cranberry juice, lime and cocktail shaker with me. We all had a Cosmo each and more cake for the rest of the film. It was great fun getting together and watching a film like Sex and the City. It just made us what to go out more together and get dressed up for it as well. We also tried to work out which character each of us was most like. I think we would all like to be Carrie for her clothes but most probably we are more like a mixture of all of them. No one owed up to being like Samantha…! The one thing that struck me when watching this film, is that I have known my friends for over fifteen years and we all have different lives, different jobs, different hobbies but it’s nice to know that we are all still friends after all these years. Even with my best friend going to Australia in December for maybe six weeks, a year or maybe even forever, I believe that the four of us will always be really good friends and have many more good times together.

    I don’t see a lot of my mates now they have gotten themselves settled down with a house or kids. I’m the only one left, out of a group of about 10, yet to do any of that stuff!
    But I remember having conversations when we were 14/15 about if we’d all know each other when we were older with kids etc. Since that time, 15/16 years later, we have all stuck together and even though we don’t see each other as much as we used to, I can’t ever see us losing touch. I’ve known my best mate 24 years and I’m not 30 yet. It’s mad when you think about it!

    I’ve always believed it is the oldest of friends that you keep in touch with more. I read somewhere once that it is harder to keep new friends then old friends. New friends you have to keep in touch with a lot more whereas old friends don’t need that “high level of touch” (can you tell I work with Californians!). They will always be friends.

    Saying that, friends that I have made over the past few years (normally through work), I hope that I stay in touch with them for years to come.
