Today I'm sending birthday wishes to another very longtime friend - Annie.
We first met when we started secondary school - Steyning Grammar Schhol in the very early 1970s - so we've known each other for around 50 years 😱😱😱
Annie helped us move into our first house in London and used to pop in for dinner now and then a she was staying and teaching not that far away. However she doesn't have a reputation for being punctual, and once turned up for dinner a week late.

With Tony on one of our UK visits
And at a party someplace.
