Yeah – “We are family, I got all my sisters with me…” Well, that’s how the song goes, so me and Caroline made our way over to Bedfordshire to Saskia’s place for a weekend of sibling fun.
Wine tasting, a huge pavlova, gossiping and Jonathan Ross on Friday night, and Nick’s golf on Saturday morning, gave us the excuse of a late start to the day’s adventures. After a very leisurely breakfast, we finally headed out to Milton Keynes, purses packed and loaded, ready to undertake the serious shopping experience.
Five hours later, Caroline’s purse much lighter, with bag’s a plenty, we finally made it home for a much needed cup of tea and a glass of bubbly. We just had enough time to make ourselves beautiful, yeah, really, it doesn’t take very long – Chris, who had very generously agreed to take us to the restaurant, only had to wait 15 minutes for us.
At the table we were greeted with a surprise bottle of bubbly for my birthday – thanks Nick. We followed this with a wonderful meal and more wine, and another late night of gossip.
Sunday was wet but relaxing and it was sad when we all had to go our separate ways.
I’m looking forward to our next get together.
