Last night was a lovely evening. We have been friends for nearly 30 years so when we get together we are comfortable with the fact that we might not have seen each other for months - we pick up where we left off and have a laugh. Sharing food and drink and trying not to only talk about the holy trinity of people our age.....mortgage/pension, state of the nation, retiring and being free of the daily grind. Luckily we are all still employed, but with one of our group being at his current job for the last 48 years, man and boy, those next 'free' years are so close we can almost taste them......but who knows the future? it was agreed that taking each day as it comes was the way forward.
