. . . holiday

Posted: December 28, 2015 in inspiration
I sincerely hope you all get a deserved and perhaps needed break in which to celebrate what you worship or ‘just put your feet up’. For me this time of year is a little melancholic as everyone I know or knew is so far away but that can mean some great surprises! Surprises sometimes as small as a Christmas card from one of your best mates from school. I will not dare say how long ago as she is still a very attractive lady who would you believe teaches in the same school we attended. Her mother was a sophisticated handsome lady who was also a teacher, and I will always remember how she explained to someone that she was talking to me as an adult because it was the best way to teach respect. Her daughter always looked after me when I was available to disrupt the normal day and now we know of each other only through faceBook detail, I guess.
Its about time I got around to visiting her again on the coast. One thing we have always tried to do though is each year buy the best designed modern Christmas card we can for each other and over the years its got a bit competitive. I have failed her this time and she has clearly won this year all because of a bout of flu I found in a hospital waiting room, laying me flat for 2 weeks. But the pleasure of making my own little Christmas tree with paper triangles to my surprise, that arrived in the snail mail, can’t be described. Each triangle was a memory as I bent it forward from the blank front cover.

The other pleasure of this lady is her writing which perfectly reflects her joyful character. I received a card enveloped in zany smiles and laughter, yet again and I am only describing her pen hand. I remember her laugh so well and her self-assurance in her prettiness, no, sexiness. Why she had anything to do with me I will never know but there are many of her cards tucked in a nice box with the envelopes too –
for you, C.
Happy Christmas and New Year
