It is a friends 40th Birthday later this week. Her sisters sent around an email to gather a group of friends to have a surprise brunch together. It was in a cafe I had never been to before, small and atmospheric with a mish mash of colours and styles. It really was lovely to have some quality time with a really nice group of women.
Sometimes it is nice to have a few hours out of our normal roles as mums and wives to talk and nurture and re-charge our batteries. There is something very comforting about opening up to other women about things that we have experienced or are currently grappling with and get their advice or take on the situation. Sometimes all us women need is to let things out and hear "I know exactly what you mean..."
Cheaper than therapy and much more fun!
