I knew it was a great extended lunch when the restaurant staff politely asked us to leave so they could set up for evening service.
I knew it was special when it was minus degrees outside and we were cosy and replete inside, with great food, wine and company.
I knew it was a rather quirky venue as I sat watching people swim in the open air Lido as I devoured my delicious meal.
I knew we'd grown up together when all the references made absolute sense; nothing was too obscure.
I knew there was that profound feeling that one of the group were missing when we all talked of her and referenced her all afternoon, as if she were there with us. Next year - we will have all 6.
I knew there were best intentions of spending time Christmas shopping but instead the day got talked away so that when we emerged, all the shops were shutting for the night.
I know they are my best of friends, when I had to take a brave gulp as I started the drive home after saying goodbye.

So here is the deal with the Best Blog of 2010; I got to the second round! Whoooooop whoooop!

And so, now to Monday...time to get back to the real world, as December starts in earnest this week, time to get the advent calendars (with glitter, of course) out and start the glorious count down...
