Birthday breakfast of Bucks Fizz and home baked croissants followed by a visit to Chapel Porth where we walked up the cliffs to Wheal Coates enjoying the challenge, the ozone and the sounds of the sea – such a lovely birthday treat.
My Dear Friend of 30+ years died on 28th December and from now on my blog will be in her memory as well as Kath’s. Angie was my TA at school and we became the very best of friends. We also shared today as our birthday.
We spent hours together at school and even more hours together in the pub unwinding from the week. When I retired, knowing my love of words, Angie gave me a beautiful little book in which to collect quotations. The first quotation was one Angie chose herself and summed up our friendship perfectly. She was a very special individual and I shall always treasure the love and the laughter that we shared.
I have since discovered that the words are by Dinah Maria Craik (20 April 1826 – 12 October 1887) an English novelist and poet. Thanks for everything, Angie.
