A simple enough theme on The Gallery this week, but what to show. The two of us? Two of my children (then what about the third? Which one to leave out?). Two glasses ? (too much booze chatter recently).
And then on Saturday night we went out to friends for a barbecue and I saw my chance.
Two photos. Of two couples.
Two mates having a drink. Bruce and Rols. Me and Mrs Cooke. Mrs Cooke is really, Jo but as she is a teacher she has always been Mrs Cooke to me. It is a hideous picture of me, I have no idea what I am doing but one thing is for sure, I have had a great evening.
The Cookes are our old next door neighbours and two of my favourite people in the world. We don’t get to catch up very often as they are both teachers and work harder than anybody I know. But when we do it is just the most laid back and fun filled few hours.
You know when you have a friendship that just is. You don’t have to work at it. Nobody feels miffed that you haven’t spoken in a couple of weeks, or haven’t seen them in a couple of months? That’s how it is with the Cookes.
