Dinner with Alison

I spent most of yesterday in a mood of very mixed feelings and emotions. I was scared, nervous, excited and on the verge of wetting myself knowing that at 7pm I would meet up with someone I hadn’t seen for nearly half my lifetime!

I had butterflies in my tummy and my hands were shaking from nerves but 20 years on from the last time we saw each other it was fantastic to catch up again. I couldn’t believe that Alison was actually in my house talking to me!

Do you think we have changed much???

Alison really hasn't changed that much from school days - her hair is longer, darker but she still has the beautiful eyes and smile that I remember. We had a lovely dinner and sat, chatting like two old fish wives about things that have happened over the last two decades and also things that we remember from our school days. I still cannot believe that we live so close to each other (ony a few streets away) but haven't cross paths before ... obviously the time is right now.

Unfortunately the kids missed out on meeting her. They really wanted to but were having a sleepover at Nana and Grandad's as Noel and I are both working today!

It was a blast! I hope Alison enjoyed herself as much as Noel and I did. Hopefully we will see each other again soon and not wait another 20 years (I have to return her dessert dish anyways! LOL!!)
