In Memory Of….

I’ve been feeling sad today as my best friend  B lost her mom.  As I try to write it is difficult to put into words how she must be feeling and how my heart goes out to her and her family.  We have been such good friends since grade 7, she is like a sister to me and I will miss her mom dearly…….so I recount the many moments my friend and I have shared on our many travels and remember some of the happier times.  One of which is our very first afternoon tea in London, England.  It was in 2006 at Harrods, in the Georgian Restaurant with another close friend S.  And although we have had a many a great “high teas” since then – for some reason I always remember the first.  The cucumber sandwiches, petit fours, raisin scones, rose jelly and the clotted cream – oooooh, the clotted cream.  If you have never tried it – go out and get some (if you’re located in Canada, I’ve seen it at Loblaws grocery stores).  Its similar to butter but creamier and lighter in flavour.  Everyone deserves a bit of indulgence now and then – especially when shared among great friends.  My thoughts are with you B.
