I keep saying that it's a very small world. You know why? Because it is.
Last year I went to stay with a friend, Viv, at her house in France. As coincidence would have it another friend, Sally, had phoned to say that she was travelling with her brother-in-law, George, to deliver parts urgently needed by her son's business partner for farm equipment not far from Viv and would like to visit. And so a couple of interesting days including playing pétanque in Villeneuve was had by all.
As yet another coincidence would have it George and Clair have a daughter who came to live in New Zealand in 1983. George and Clair come to visit every alternate year for a couple of months. Their daughter lives about half an hour from me.
So George and Clair came for lunch yesterday. A wonderful afternoon.
