{Friendship Friday} The girl with the yellow scarf

EDITED - this is post number 2000!

The lovely Mrs FF celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago and like all clever people, took the day off from work.

I happened to have the time free so we arranged to meet for lunch in Rosebank.

We had a lovely lunch and then browsed Woolworths for a bit. Interestingly, the last time I went into that Woolworths was just over two years ago at our first proper friend date.

(F, I scoured the archives and your first infertility group was 16 Feb 2012)

am I the only one who makes a list of things I have to remember to ask about?! (otherwise I get sidetracked with all the talking...)

drinks! (remember the days of carrying lots of bottles around?)

gorgeous girls!

A note about the yellow scarf I'm wearing - it was a "just because"/ random act of kindness from Mrs FF for me earlier this year.

One day D came home with a gift bag and said, "this is from F for you". I squealed (of course). Then he added, "she says she's very worried about you and hopes this cheers you up".

D is the messenger (they work in buildings next to each other, or something like that - you all know I'm terrible with directions) for all our gifts :)

It came at the perfect time when I was feeling really despondent about the Work Situation, was bright and cheery and I just loved that she thought of me and went to get me something happy :)

Tell me about a time when you had a lovely surprise just at the right time

PS Bonus points for anyone who knows about "the girl with the green scarf" without googling!


  1. How wonderful to see you and F and Miss K!!! What beautiful pictures! I really, really love the one of F's hands with K's hand. <3 !!!

    So glad you two got to spend time together!

    1. Thank you!

      (I always love hand pics - but I forgot how quick babies move - that was the best one of about 8 that I deleted!)

  2. Awwwww!!! I'm glad we for to spend time together, except it was seems like time flies and before we know it we need to say good bye

    I googled then it came to me! So I won't spill the beans.

    You were almost right. There's one building between D's office and mine. If you crawl you would be there in less than 5 mins :)

    1. :) :)

      Always too little time, my friend, but better that than nothing!

  3. I know, I know! Shopaholic. Read some of the books and by chance watched the movie the other night.

    How happy does Mrs FF look! And those hands!

  4. Love them! Love the photo's :)


  5. Didn't Louisa knit you a green scarf? I LOVE these pictures sooooo much!
