A massive thank you to Clair, a friend for the last 25 years, who came and spent an all too soon over 28 hours with me.
But it was a great 28 hours.
There are quite a few people that have said ‘ they’ll definitely come and visit’ , far more than have actually come.
What well meaning friends don’t do, is to say that they’ve changed their minds, and aren’t coming after all.
I totally get that delivering disappointing news is far harder than coming out with something positive, but it still is the ‘right’ thing to do, as unrealised hope isn’t good for me.
