I have known Bob since I was sixteen,
when he, and another life-long friend, Roy and I were on the same course at college. I’ve known Ann since I was in my early twenties. For over twenty years, we all made a point of getting our families together at least once a year on New Year’s Eve. It was a tradition that I am afraid I broke when I moved to the US.
It was nice to spend a couple of days with them, and a shame it couldn’t have been longer – but we have a night out in Portsmouth with friends Liv, Nigel and Nic organized, so tomorrow we must move on.
