Two of my oldest friends are 70 in the next few days. We started school together back when we were 5 !
One of them was a really close friend as she lived in the next road to us, and we walked to school together and played together outside of school.. However, our family moved when I was two-thirds of the way through my first year at secondary school.
We lost touch, but through Friends Reunited we made contact again a few years ago, and exchange Christmas Cards.
Well I couldn't let our big week go past without sending them a card - yes our birthdays are literally one day after another! (and yes that means I am 70 next week too! - but more of that next week!
