It’s very easy to take friends for granted at times. Thankfully I have a bunch of very close friends who constantly remind me with their support and just great friendship, how lucky I am.

On Friday I took a day’s holiday to go down a couple of hours south with some of these friends. One of the couples in the group are fairly new friends but the dynamic of the 7 of us (three straight couples and myself) was so much fun. There were lots of laughs, drinks, good food and great fireplace toasty-ness.

I’d had a bit of a stressful week so a three day weekend like this was exactly what I needed. I’m not sure that it’s done my fitness challenge much good but you need balance in life and these friends give me that balance in spades.
