I absolutely LOVE this room, just look at that high ceiling and those fabulous windows....
....my husband proposed to me in front of the Dakota building and overlooking this lake in Central Park...I've just emailed him this photo :)
....i don't think i could ever be this organised, i wouldn't mind this pantry though!
Oh, I'm glad it's Friday, so glad.
I'm certainly feeling better than I did at the beginning of the week but two weeks of school holidays starting Monday is definitely what the doctor ordered.
Tennis and netball camp for a few days and then, my favourite holiday activity....exploring London!
I am thinking....a boat trip down the River Thames to Greenwich and the Royal Observatory, Portobello Road, Sloane Square and King's Road, Columbia Road Flower Market, the Monument, Borough Market, Peggy Porschen's amazing cake shop.....
They say that the British talk about the weather a lot but the weather this week has been absolutely gorgeous....blue skies, sunshine, warm and quite blissful, it would be wrong not to appreciate it ever minute of it, particularly as we never know how long it will last.
It would be wonderful if it was like this next week....we'll see.
I've known my lovely friend Lara for 13 years or so
she used to live near Boston and now she lives near Seattle
we've been through a lot together, ups and downs
we have laughed and definitely cried together
we have a connection which is as strong today as it was when we first met
I say "met" although actually we've never met in person
we're part of an small online group of girls, it's a friendship where we just get each other
there's a shorthand and an understanding
we've talked on the phone and one day we'll meet, I'm absolutely certain of that
she's a comforter, one of those people that's just a constant in my life,
sometimes she's the voice in my head - reassuring and wise
she's one of those friends that you really wished you lived next door to....
Lara is creative, caring, emotional, strong and compassionate, kind....
a wonderful mother and super-thoughtful friend
she's funny, wise, clever, she writes a blog here
today is her birthday so I just wanted to dedicate this post to her....with thanks for everything.
Happy Birthday Lara, I love you sweetie xx
