this photo brings back memories.

This is my best friend Tamara and i unwrapping presents at my kitchen tea yesterday afternoon.

As soon as this photo downloaded onto the computer about a million memories sprung to mind. Tamara and i have been friends for over 20 years and i have so many memories of the two of us sitting on the floor like this. Unwrapping presents at each other birthday parties. Or playing games. Or as we got older, sitting around gossiping. Laughing and mucking around. Always totally comfortable with each other. Never an uneasy silence. Always something to talk about even if we'd spent the whole day together.

Even the way were sitting makes me smile. Were 26 years old now, but still sit the way we were taught to when we were 6 years old on our first day of kindergarten. Tho when we were six, it was always a competition to see who could sit up the straightest.......thats obviously not a priority any longer. lol

How great to have a friend like that! I used to have them too, but since we both have children, we have grown apart... Such a pitty... Cherish your friendship!

Isn't it great to have a friend like that! My childhood friend now lives quite a way away from me but when we see each other its just like we live next door!
