Wellington in 1976 and still the best of mates. It was Adele’s 75th Birthday the day before so more reason to celebrate that interesting life!! I came back from my homeland. England in October 1976 after nearly five years. Met up with two very special folk, and today still the best of friends, they are also my daughters God Mothers, sadly Sarah couldnt make it this weekend to join us for my birthday celebration, one couple had a three hour journey to join us, Napier, the other couple live in Carterton, also had a special friend from Wellington drive up for the luncheon at Gladstone Pub. sat outside in the lovely garden, weather was awesome.. I always say, choose your friends carefully, they should last a lifetime… 42 years on with us eh! They worked for me at James Smith in the Girls School Dept. long may the friendship last!
