Almost a week ago (where has that week gone already!), we farewelled our friends Sarah and Gus back to London. They were here for a very short time after being overseas for almost 3 years (they originally said 1!).

It was so good to see them and to spend whatever time together that we could. After so many years it was fabulous to know that our friendship had not changed, and if anything I felt closer to Sarah than ever before! I’ve mentioned this in an earlier post, but our friendship, which started when we were in year 8, really is one of those that are rare and I think hard to find. A friendship full of memories, and intimate details. The older I get the more I treasure this, it is easy  – we know each other so well that most things can be said with a look, with a quick word – and this is harder to find as life changes. Going to new places, and meeting new friends is no longer as easy as when one spent days and days with others at school. Building new relationships takes time, and with family, work and so forth it is often hard to develop those lasting relationships that have been formed from our youth.

This is not to say that I won’t try nor that I don’t love meeting new people. I just know now, in my 31 years of experience (!), that those friendships of trust, fun, love and life are to be treasured and nurtured.

I miss you already my friend. Come home one day!
