L-R: Dario, Mario, Peter, Barry, Fred me!
I didn't really want to have leaving drinks at all and wasn't entirely sure that they would happen.  Getting friends together in one place is quite a feat to be accomplished and when it happens I tend to get overly sentimental.  So I wasn't keen on putting any last minute doubt to my plans.
I needn't have worried though because only my closest friends came and it was just perfect.   I didn't invite some people because I hadn't spoken to them for a long while and others because of well other reasons.  So it turned out just perfect.

Barry and Steve who are my best friends here were of course the highlight and Dario well... (I know he'll read this at some point!) he is on a whole other level, more like family.  Its always a highlight to kick about with him.

So we went to Zigfrids... Dario was as usual, late. As was I, but he was exceptionally late.  There was quite a bit of vodka flowing and everyone seemed to have a nice time. 

I had nice long chats with everyone which was the best bit. Who knows when the planets will align to have us all in the same place again.  Everyone is moving on with their own plans and most people's plans don't involve London. 

Writing this I'm getting a little teary and its so silly.  I know in my heart that I'll see these guys again and with skype and email and things communicating is easier than ever.  I will miss seeing their little faces though.

I was really happy with how it all turned out and I was drunker than I thought I was going by the headache I had today...
