Tedious housework mountain already climbed - tick.
Sunshine - tick.
A long overdue catchup with my dear friend Andrea - tick.
Beautiful flowers from aforementioned friend - big fat tick.
Today Andrea and I spent a marathon five hours catching up on the last 20 months. We talked of travel, of careers, of love, hopes and dreams.
Friendship, I've decided, is a bit like the little girl with the curl - when it is good, it is VERY GOOD.
Letting the side down was this little guy who thought he'd help himself to cake.
