Yesterday Richie was very busy all day with me, the dogs and shopping for us and for our visitor who we were looking forward to a lot.
It was very exciting waiting for 20.00 when John said he would be here, and he was, it was very nice to see him again after so long.
We came to the conclusion that we had not seen each other since 1998 when we were still living at the Haarlemmer Dijk, before we moved in 2000.
Seeing John again was so natural, it did not seem like 14 years ago it felt like we had only seen each other a few weeks ago.
Good to be able to relate to each other just like we always did, nice to feel so relaxed in each other's company.
Richie is cooking dinner for the three of us, John brought us some vegetarian haggis, most of it is in the deep freeze, Richie has made some for us tonight.
Which we will eat with mashed potatoes and swede which is what is traditionally eaten on Burns night in January on Robert Burn’s birthday.
It really is lovely to see you a good friend like John again, I'm so very glad that he is here visiting us, this really is a special occasion being reunited with such a good friend.
