Whoopee - first day of the school holidays. I had a great beginning to the Christmas break - met up with a friend for coffee in our favourite cafe. It was bitterly cold outside, so it was somewhat bizarre to be warm and cosy while we watched white waves whipping up a grey sea.
There is nothing quite as good as catching up over a cappuchino. I am fortunate to have good friends who are both decades younger and older than I am. I value their wisdom and outlook on life. I love to hear their experiences: sometimes these echo my own, sometimes they offer new possibilities. Just an hour with one of these special people enriches my life and reminds me how blessed with friendship I am. Energising, revitalising.
