I've not blogged much lately (apart from posting a couple of photos on my other blog) as I've been travelling all over Greece to visit friends.
I've just spent three days with my friend Aspa, who I'd not seen for years. Aspa and I started as pen friends when we were both 14 and soon became good friends. Despite following completely different paths in life, we have kept in touch for over 20 years, we still write the occasional letter (Aspa doesn't do computers) and enjoy each other's company whenever we get together. We've spent the last three days catching up, talking almost non-stop and even staying up until 3 AM each night to talk after putting the kids to bed. I've had the most wonderful time and can't wait to see her again.
It's true what they say, that the more time you spend with someone the more you miss them. Sometimes life gets in the way - the last time Aspa and I had a few hours of uniterrupted time together was 7 years ago - but we've both promised each other not to let another seven years go by before our next face-to-face chat.
