arrivals and departures
A busy couple of days, with oddly conflicting emotions.
Yesterday a good friend of long-standing rang me out of the blue. Because of his work abroad, and our mutual crapness as regards keeping in touch, his call was entirely un-expected.
It transpires that he and his lovely wife are expecting their first child in December.......I was very excited at this news, and hugely amused that they are expecting a girl.
Sadly, two other pairs of friends lost family members yesterday. One of the lost was a very young child, the other a lady of advanced age.
Big stuff, big thoughts.
