Happy talk

I had a lovely surprise phone call yesterday.
Not for any reason in particular, just a dear friend calling for a good old fashioned natter.
It's got me thinking that in these days where we're more likely to email than talk, it was so wonderful to have a whole luxurious, rambling hour on the phone.
Our lives are chalk and cheese really.
We live down here in the very south of the country, she's up in the sunny north.
She's your numbers girl, I do cryptic crosswords.
She has 2 fantastic kids, I have none.
I always have to cook exactly to a recipe, she'll toss something in if it's 'close enough'.
She loves her corporate life, and I play around with fabric and wool.
We'll actually be in the same city at the same time this weekend, and I can't wait to catch up with her in person!
