Great friends ...

We are very lucky to have met some lovely people on our journey ...

What you find is that when the chips are down, some stand back, and some really stand out from the rest. One of those is Margaret, who we have shared some desperate times with over the last year. I have been speaking to her on the telephone at all hours, as she lives half a world away.

But once again, she has taken us by surprise, by being here when she was needed most, for moral, and physical support. There are not many people who will help you out, in times of trouble.

'A friend in need is often best avoided' and we have learned that well this last year...

So to hear her cheery voice, to say 'I am at Aghios Konstantinos on the bus from Athens, see you in a few hours' is one of the best things you hear at all ...

There were hugs, tears and a lovely supper shared in a waterfront taverna.

Junior and I left the girls to it and headed home, for all the best reasons - Thank you once again Margarita xxx
