Singapore Slings and Skype

Friday night was spent in the company of some very good friends. One, sadly, couldn't make it due to work and 250 miles between her and us. Not to be deterred or show our age, we Skyped her. Admittedly, the link cut out about four times and technology hasn't moved on enough to allow her to join in the Singapore Slings or very fine meal cooked by our host. To show my appreciation, I ate two helpings. I didn't want to look like I wasn't enjoying myself, did I?

We're now in our thirty-first year of friendship. You'd have thought that we'd have ran out of things to say, but no, we covered a number of topics and there was never a lull in the conversation. Even with generous amounts of food and a dessert (I abstained in case I exploded), there was little break in the conversation.

One of the many things we talked about was that my friends are very much looking forward to my book launch. Some of them have pre-ordered 'Never Forget' on Amazon. I was quite touched by that. Just hope that I live up to their expectations. No pressure then...
