On Friday night, we celebrated Jamie's 31st birthday in a Turksih restaurant Tas at London Bridge. It was nice meeting again with Dan and Julie, Seema and Jamie. Last time we saw them was this summer in July for a BBQ at Dan and Julie's. It's shame funny guy Barry could not make it, Barry is Jamie's childhood best friend... and so half way through dinner Jamie realised that exactly 10 years ago, Barry could not make it for his 21st party and that he celebrated with just Dan and Alex... and in fact me too). We never reminisced about the old days, but we were quite taken by the fact that Alex, Dan and Jamie have been mates for over 10 years, and Alex and I a couple for over 10 years and although back then we did not know Julie and Seema, somewhere else in the UK, Julie and Seema were already best friends and would end up marrying into this friendship (Julie started dating Dan 6 or 7 years ago and that's how Jamie met Seema). That's brilliant, that we've been friends for so long and how things turned up so cool for all of us, and how we still haven't changed.
We also made plans to see each other more often, so we've booked New Year's Eve 2007 and New Year Eve 2008 and next Friday a dinner party at Jamie's and on Saturday celebrating Guy Fox Bonfire at Dan's sisters and dinner at our place for Alex birthday and of course, I made sure they booked their agenda for my upcoming 30th birthday party. Lots to look forward to!
