Last night I spent a long time on the phone with my friend Karen.  We are still trying to sort out a motorhome meet up in the Lake District for later this month but have been chatting about a couple of sites that would be suitable for us (and our dogs!).

We were good friends when I lived in Croydon and when I moved back to Scotland, Karen came up for visit in 2000… that was the last time we met up together!

Both of us couldn’t believe it was that long and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then … as well (in my case) a lot of weight around my middle and my blonde streaks have turned to natural gray!

We have talked about some of the “old times” and laughed our heads off at the nonsense we used to get up to… we are older now, can’t say much wiser, but I’m sure that later this month we will be laughing our heads off once again!

Sometimes friends fall by the way, through no-one’s fault … just life and distance … but it is always there.   True friendship will always reignite no matter how long you are apart, because it is based on true care, honesty and trust.   Sadly, not all friendships are strong and people do come and go from your life forever, but that’s ok.  The one’s who are meant to be in your life will always be there, and I know I am lucky to have some wonderful people in my life.
