Feeling nostalgic

Today I got an email from my friend in Sweden. She attached some photos and in some of them E and her family were making a little camp fire on an island in the middle of a frozen lake and eating snacks. It reminded me of the day we went there. The weather was perfect - the lake was frozen but there hadn't been any snow yet (perfect for skating!). The sun was shining and it was just before Christmas so we ate lussekatter (saffron buns) and drank coffee. We too made a fire and grilled some sausages. We skated around and acted like kids. B (my friend's brother) did some 'ice dancing' (parodi) and we cut some holes in the ice in the hope of catching some fish. Fun times.
When we were in high school E and I used to write to each other at least once a week. Now we're lucky enough to manage an email every 6 months. That doesn't mean that we don't think of each other - it's just that being a grown up means you have other responsibilities. I can't sit in Math class anymore and write a letter, pretending I'm solving equations.....
But, I'm going to try and make an effort to write more to my friends who live far away. B and E and C in England, Sweden and New Zealand are the first 3 on my list.
If I can write a blog I can find time to email my friends, right?

*sigh* I miss you 'syster yster'!
