I am at my farm - my happy place - with three of my best friends.
It is foggy, icy and snowy outside but friends are drinking coffee and chatting happily inside, covered in fur blankets.
We have lots of magazines, food, chocolate, candles, chatter and laughter. And, of course, yummy chardonnay - even with lunch. With only a few texts and conversations, meal planning was sorted out with everyone bringing something delicious to the table.
This is what is is like with old friends - simple.
My favourite meal this weekend was breakfast. It was spinach + salmon eggs benedict with roasted red pepper sauce. Another friend made a massive pot of Turkish lentil soup for lunch - enough for us all to take home a mason jar to share with family.
The weekend started with a design brainstorming session. It ended with scrambled eggs with a long waterfront walk.
My heaven - with good friends - in the wet, cold January fog.
