Have you heard the saying that people come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime? I think this has rung true for me over the past year or so.
I had lunch today with one of my oldest friends since school. We've not seen each other for a while but it was nice to catch up and was just like old times. She's heading off to Australia for a month in 3 weeks time with her family and I'll miss her.
She won't thank me for this but the photie below is when we went on a school trip to Germany's Rhine Valley about... *whispers* ahem... cough... 17 years ago!! Jees! I think we're ageing well and my hair has calmed down a wee bit since then.
In this photie is Julie (another great friend who emigrated to Australia 3 years ago), Wee Stephen Giannandrea (who is now an architect and lives in Brazil with his wife a 2 kids), Donna (who I met today for lunch) and Me. On the end. Hiding in the corner with my Umbro jumper on. They were the fashion in those days - honest!
