RIP my friend

I am a little sad today ................ an old friend has passed away.  Sue had battled cancer for many years and had such a great positive attitude, but 52 is far too young to go.

Sue, Alan & Cathy

Our old 'gang'
We were quite the gang in our younger years.  I first met Sue in about '74 and we shared a flat in '78 - then as adults, we went our separate ways.   We caught up again in 2006 for another friend's birthday and kept in touch for a little while, but then life got in the way again.

I have so many fond memories of our teenage years together and I am so sad that I didn't keep in touch more often and give her a quick call when I thought about her - which was often - just to say hello  :(

It was really strange, as I was thinking about her on Wednesday ...... I was tidying up my sewing room and came across the "Bean Bag Pal' she gave me for my 18th birthday

Note to self :  make that phone call when you think about it, don't put it off!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
