I ❤️ Sheffield


Never underestimate friendship
During rough times friends are the lifebelts of your world,
They keep your head above water

Today I'm in my hometown
and seeing eight dear friends in a well choreographed set of meet ups.
Vince, Bev and Maisie, Mick , Mike, Jane, Kathryn and hopefully a very arch Jonney H

  4. Ursula. Again you have chosen to ridicule me and my friends after stating very clearly that you wouldnt blog a comment ever again. And then have the audacity to complain about being deleted .
    I gave you a second chance here a little while ago because your comments were not personal or negative to anyone else...but that changed and from now on you will be deleted. Every comment will be deleted.
    And it is all your fault

    1. No, but I have considered it. It's my touchstone, my bolt hole, my happy place, but things move forward and not backwards soat the moment , I am staying in wales, especially as I am lucky enough to get myself a job at 57!!

  9. When times are bad you learn who your real friends are...and they are truly lifebelts. A rainbow in someone's cloud (not my saying but a good one).

  10. I know nothing about Sheffield except that Doctor Who is now filmed there. Combined with the fact that you heart the town, that's good enough for me.

    I heart Sheffield, too.

  11. Good friends are priceless and you are fortunate to have so many - and they are equally lucky to have you as a friend.

    As often as you've mentioned your love of Sheffield here, I am delighted that you're there once more! Your well choreographed meetings with special friends is just the ticket and I hope your heart is full of happiness when it's time to go home again.

    Hugs!

    Meeting up with one of my oldest friends tomorrow. She is here from Toronto and we have a lot to catch up on.

  24. It's not the place. It is the people. My old hometown is nothing to me now, there is nobody I know there any more. But I still have some friends I made there as a girl, scattered across the map. We may not have seen each other for months, years even, but when we do get to see each other, we pick up like we last saw each other yesterday. A small miracle, but a miracle nonetheless.
