I’m home… my great adventure is over.  

I have spent two weeks touring England visiting friends to make the celebrations for my 50th just that wee bit special.

I have been to Evesham, Brighton, Wells, Budleigh Salterton and Leeds and I have had probably the best two weeks of my life.

My days have been filled with spending time with very special friends, laughing, eating and the occassional bottle of wine or two!

Friendship is a very special thing and I am lucky to have friends that I love dearly, who have stood by me during bad times and good times and a few times when I think they could have slapped me.     We are not in contact on a regular basis but we are always there for each other and I treasure their friendship more than they will ever know.

Sometimes friendships slip because we just get busy and forget to keep in contact.   When you read this, think of a friend who you have lost contact with and make the effort to find them.  It is never too late for friendship.
