I’m sure that those reading this will all have friends. Some will have more than others but how many of you are as fortunate as my wife and I to have true friends? You know, the ones you do not see very often but when you do meet you are able to just pick up where you left off.
Well last night we met some of those true friends as we were invited over to Billy and Emma’s.
Its been over eight months since we last saw them and we were shocked at how much their children (Isaac, Joshua, Hannah and Sophie) had grown. They are a credit to Billy and Emma as they are all very polite and well behaved. The star of the evening and the one who got most of the attention was their youngest Isaac.
Sherry was also there followed by Frank later on in the evening and we last saw them earlier on in the year.
We went straight into the kitchen and had hugs all around. Their kitchen was as in many households the main room of the house and last night it is where we all met and sat around a lovely big table.
Emma had made starters and a main and the girls had made a lovely Banoffe pie.
The conversation never stopped all evening from old work stories, punting trips under the influence of alcohol to future plans for everyone, some of them very exciting indeed. It was quite refreshing not to have any TV or music to spoil it.
We arrived at 7:30pm and left about midnight, the evening seemed to whiz by and it was a bit sad leaving as we will not see each other until next March or possibly later towards the end of next year.
Billy, Emma and family are off to Egypt soon for a holiday and we are about to leave for Spain for the winter, lots to talk about next time we all meet up again!
Before we leave for Spain we are going to meet up with (this Friday) two more true friends Al and Isobel ????
Thanks guys for a brilliant evening…………..keep safe and well until our next meeting.
