It doesn’t get any easier to say goodbye. Despite the fact that we are running out of time, only 10 days before our own little Le Grand Depart, we are arranging further farewells with those we had already met with for this purpose. This does help to defer the inevitable wrench but also makes our diary incredibly full, but we will be a long time without our old friends so are trying to cram in as much time with them as possible.
Since our previous post I have abandoned my T’ai chi group of 6 years and was treated to a shorter session and little fuddle on my final evening. I would like to think that I will continue to maintain this very beneficial exercise regime but have a sneaking suspicion that it may fall by the wayside much to my physical detriment. I have also attended my ex-colleagues premature Christmas dinner which they kindly brought forward and allowed partners to join. This has been a festive period ritual for more years than I care to remember. I think I would have struggled to have known that they were meeting without me at that time of the year. Au revoir mon amis.
