It’s my last post of this series from Breda. Himself’s mother had a life long friend who had one child.

The two families spent so much time together when the children were young that it was like Himself’s family acquired an extra sibling, and for the girl in the other family, like she gained two proxy brothers and sisters.

The people you spend a lot of time with whilst growing up have a special bond that remains with you all of your  life.

I have of course met the family often during my married life, but this is the first time I have been to the smaller house that the mother down-sized to from her large central city property.

The home is light and airy and the dining room table is close to French doors that open out into the garden.

The mother and daughter potter around in the kitchen preparing a delicious vegetable curry. In fact it was so good that we were all busy tucking in and I forgot to get photographs.Dessert was simple; fresh fruit and ice-cream, and a surprise was in store: ‘Kaneel‘ (cinnamon) flavoured ice-cream! I have never heard of this so asked it was a local specialty, to be greeted with a laugh, it turns out it was ‘local’ in that it came from their local supermarket, and the biggest national chain supermarket at that!  It just goes to show how much time I spend in supermarkets these days. One day I will get around to having an on-line grocery order delivered so that not all of the grocery shopping burden falls on Himself’s shoulders. After dinner we make our way home, a wonderful weekend day out being had by all.
