Old Friends

We had our close neighbours Eddie and Jill over on Saturday afternoon for a pre-Xmas catch up. They are most entertaining people.

We have been in our current house for 15 years and during that time have had regular contact.

They are both heavily involved in their local church. Jill spends a lot of time visiting and helping others, including us as when we go away she keeps an eye on our cat. Eddie takes communion to those people who can't get to Mass. Eddie is keen on bowls and belongs to Raumati South Bowling Club. He can often be found serving his fellow bowlers at their Club Rooms. They both go along to a monthly bowl night and barbecue.

Eddie and Jill have been fantastic loyal friends and have taken great interest in Kate and Alice, buying Xmas presents and following their sporting successes.

Ah, I recently saw a cousin that I hadn't seen in over 15 years. It was so fun. Good friends are better than almost anything.
