When it comes to friendship, I’m a firm believer in quality over quantity. Chris and I share that sentiment and, as a result, we’re fortunate enough to have a small but core inner circle, full of the most wonderful human beings in existence. Okay, so perhaps we’re a little biased. But all kidding aside, we have nothing but the kind of friends that would help you to hide a body.
Moving overseas can put a lot of things into perspective, friendship included. You realize very quickly the value of your relationships and how no distance of time or space can lessen an alliance with the people you value most.
In April we were fortunate enough to have a visit from our two oldest friends. I say oldest not in the sense of age but rather in the sense of “we’ve known each other since we were five and thus know too many deep dark secrets and embarrassing pasts to stop talking now”. Marielle and Robyn came for 10 days and we filled them to the brim with walks, coffees and lots of chatting whist spotting mallards. There are far too many highlights to explain in detail so instead I will allow Chris’ photos, and a few stolen ones from Mare, illustrate what a wonderful visit it was. We are really grateful for all the effort made by our friends and family, not only when people come all the way over to visit but for every card, text and early morning Skype. Despite being 3000 miles apart from our Canadian contingency, somehow it doesn’t feel all that far away.
Until the next time ladies. Whenever we see a puppy or a mallard we will think of you fondly.
