Old friends matter.

Over the years I've moved several times and each move has brought new friends.
Now safely settled here in Cornwall the next move may well be my last....
So it's amazing how many people I can count as old friends..
I tried working out just how long I've known some of them a little while back.
My old college friends are already gone before me...but two old friends are still around....
I worked out the other day how long I've known both of them.
One of them I've known since we met in North Wales...that was somewhere around 1978.
Another I have known since 1983. Or thereabouts...but both are getting closer . They are my oldest friends I think apart from one or two old colleagues one of whom is currently the Mayor of Rochdale!
The very oldest shared an interest in Astrology when we were much younger...
The slightly younger one was a man we met here on holiday with his wife and we have stayed in touch for nearly forty years . He now has a second home here so we see each other fairly frequently .
So now they are both involved again in my life.
A cruise I booked months ago will have my female ex Astrologer on it by sheer chance.
The man would like to be included too but so far I've avoided it...
One of these friends reads this blog. The other doesn' prizes for guessing...
Both of these old friends are a similar age and I'm glad they are around....I need one or two people from previous lives......having lost my nearest and dearest now, they are valued reminders of the woman I once was and the journeys we have all travelled together... long may it continue.
