A lovely way to spend a Saturday

You know how it is when you meet people along the way and you very quickly forget that you only just met them because they feel like old friends?

It was like that with our guests yesterday.

We met Paola and Simon just as Veronica was leaving the flatlands, at a party at our place. We stayed in touch and I wandered over to Brussels to photograph their beautiful family a couple of months ago.

Yesterday they arrived mid-afternoon and we watched as the 3 little girls under 5 became friends, playing throughout the afternoon and into the evening as we ate dinner and talked about all kinds of interesting things.

It was good in so many ways ... for the first time in a week, I could actually taste the wine and drinking a little didn't set off a sinus headache. And the weather was warm enough to sit out on the balcony - for as long as we could stand the 'exuberant' breeze. And this morning, this morning the apartment is still clean after yesterday's efforts.

It was a good way to spend a day.
Thanks guys.

It was indeed a lovely day - thanks again. And I think Paola's going to email you to ask for that Persian chicken recipe...
