Eating out with friends

I love good food. I love good conversation. And I love not having to cook or wash the dishes.

Eating out with friends is the perfect way to achieve all three of the above. And I have to tell you that it’s particularly good when one of those friends takes you to his favourite restaurant, which happens to serve food that is more familiar to you that the strange fishy soups and pickled vegetables you’ve been surviving on lately. Eating a creamy pasta dish with garlic bread has never been such an ecstatic experience. We sat around the table half the night, scraping our plates clean, talking about topics other than the school and the children, and laughing. It felt good.

Eating out with friends. It just makes me happy.
