The three mile walk to Tandle Hills Country Park has not really changed in the 55 years that I have been doing it. There are some new houses and of course there is the motorway link A627M but, the puddles that were there when I was 9 or 10 are still in the same spots.
On Thursday evening I went to the pub with a friend from my last place of employment and had a good couple of hours together. On Wednesday lunch time I went to the same pub with a friend from my probationary year school. Two completely different people but two really good friends. If cancer does anything it does make you appreciate the essential parts of your life and friendships are just that.
