So we’re not quite the Sex and the City girls, but there are four of us. As we sit around we chat away. Wedding planning, hen nights and children seem to be the order of conversation, these do not interest me. A single, childless female in my (very!) early 30’s, surely this should be what I thrive on, domesticity and all that comes with it? As it happens it’s not. Give me friends, music, nights out, nights in and no strings it’s what I love.
I adore these conversations with the girls, getting the four of us together is difficult given the work/life clashes that are thrown at us. No matter what is going on, be it good or bad, there’s always time made for these moments and akin to the SATC girls, we share our musings and rants over a box of Fancie cupcakes. The topic of conversation soon drifts from the previously mentioned on to the impending choice of delicious pieces of cake. Our own quirks shine through here when posed with selection be it Lemon, Pink Velvet, Chocolate Mint, Carrot need I go on? I’m drooling at the thought as I sit and type this.
To me, what it boils down to is this, it’s that special moment that you just can’t wait for, the midweek treat that you desire, a chat with the girls as we regroup, gossip and plan our future as friends. There’s no pretence or need for Manolo Blahnik shoes, Chloe bags or even a Cosmo here, it’s our quality time together, simple pleasures that include a Fancie cupcake.
