Saying goodbye to friend(s)
We've just had a great long weekend here in Belgium, 30 degrees and BBQ's with friends. However, I am still looking forward to leaving. The children say they will miss their school friends. For me, I just had acquaintances here and one best friend. So it's her, Lemony, that I'll miss. She's American but normal. I say that in the nicest possible way. I've taught her to speak English of course but she naturally possesses the brittle dry humour of a Brit. It's easy, the kids get on, the husbands talk sport and we put the world to rights over a bottle or two. I know I'll make new friends but Lemony I will truly miss.
