had a very lovely evening on Monday… 

was picked up from the office by a friend, and went off for supper and a visit with eight other amazing women…

supper was potato salad, three bean salad, chicken breast, strawberries, ice cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate cookies… it was delicious

actually, I didn’t have the ice cream or the chocolate sauce, but I could not pass up the cookie and strawberries…

we always spend some time discussing an interesting topic… during our conversation we talked about what we remembered of our childhood

on reflection it seemed like most of the group had not had happy childhoods although at the time it seemed normal…

was very interesting to hear that so many of us did not have the picture perfect childhood that everyone imagines…

tonight I was out with someone else and we discussed the fact that her childhood was nothing to write home about…

it appears that those of a similar age were brought up in a less-happy and more focused manner than we imagined everyone else was…

interesting conversations… 

wonder how our children will view their childhoods…
