After about eighteen months planning and one failed attempt which was 100% my fault, Nella, Emma and I finally managed to arrange dinner together to catch up.
The back story here is that we all lived together in a flat share in Ealing Common for about 4 years. Emma moved in with her lovely man, James aka Fordey and Nella moved from a five person flat share into a two bed down the road.
We met at Jackson & Rye in Chiswick for dinner and drinks and it was just like old times, except for the fact we all seem a lot more settled and well, grown up 😊.
Dinner was lovely too and we’d all highly recommend the restaurant. The only downside to the whole evening was that in a moment of panic I completely blanked on my PIN number when it came to pay. Nella came to the rescue and I think I can remember it now but it’s quite terrifying when you use a debit card as much as I do and then blank on a four digit code you use every day. I blame contactless!
If you’ve been meaning to catch up with old friends and haven’t made time, do it today. Don’t wait. Life is for living not hanging around for opportunities to present themselves.
Have good days folks!
P.S. Today’s photo is circa 2007. We were all too busy chatting to take selfies 😉.
