"What kind of pool party is this when you girls come without your swimsuit?" the guys teased.
I'm not quite a water babe unless it's really sunny. Yesterday's cool weather gave us an excuse not to get wet, so we were happy to chat by the pool.
"I want to be a mudskipper when I grow up."
The guys frolicked in the water and emerged shivering. That was the signal for a nice hot meal in the kitchen. The pot of curry went back on the stove and baguettes were shoved into the oven until they were warm and crusty.
The table was set. EY poured champagne and we drank a toast to friendship and more good times ahead.
