Catching up with an old friend.

Catching up with an old friend.
I think Dianne was the first friend I ever made outside of my family.
Here she is on the right of this photo, at my birthday in 1977, when I turned 17.

From left is Ross, Harold, David, me in the shadows, Julie on Mister the horse, Bernie holding him and Dianne on the right.
 And so I caught up with Dianne recently through facebook.
We exchanged emails and then spoke for a couple of hours on the phone, she is in WA and me in VIC.
It was so great to talk and reminisce about our childhoods together, so many wonderful memories.
Me aged about3 maybe 4. This was the age I was when I met Dianne, actually I think the photo was taken by her parents and given to me. I love and an thankful they took it as I have none others of myself till I was in my teens.

Me and my dog Susie C1973

Mrs Lardi, our next door neighbour, she was special and a gardening inspiration for me.

My brother Neil on the left, my now husband Martin in the middle and Gubba on the right.
This was the first time I met Martin.

Me around the time I met Martin, no wonder he fell in love with me at that time.

Me and my horse Mister.
So Dianne, here is a collection of photos from around the time I knew you best.
Such good times.
Thankyou for coming back into my life again after about 40 years.
