I hadn’t see Debbie since I was about 14 as far as we could both remember. Our parents are close friends from their military days but we had lost touch a while back. I was so delighted to reconnect when Debbie wanted to speak to me about her wedding in Somerset. We spoke in the loosest sense of the word back at Easter, although I was in the throes of losing my voice, and confirmed the details and finally had the chance to meet up when I went down to Bristol last weekend.
I had the most wonderful day, a few hours with Debbie, Gavin and their gorgeous, smiley little boy Jack wandering around Clifton, followed by a lunch with a girlfriend at The River Cottage Canteen, a wander along the harbour at the Bristol Harbour Festival and finally a few drinks with an old friend. The perfect spontaneous, fun filled, sunny day to fill my heart with love and friendship.
