Yesterday I started composing a post in readiness for today but Typepad let me down and I’ve lost it. The reason I started it early was that I have a friend coming to stay with me for the weekend from interstate (that wasn’t what the post was about).
I worked out yesterday that we’ve known each other for 35 years so she’s my oldest friend. I met her when I was my son’s age – five – and she came to my primary school. Her family moved elsewhere when we were in high school but we’ve kept in touch ever since. She was in Adelaide for a while but moved to Melbourne and now has four children.
So it’s 7.30am, I’ve got the iron on to iron a dress for me, and a shirt for JJ. We’ll have breakfast and go to the airport to pick her up. Hopefully I can publish this without any mishap.
