I have just spent a lovely couple of days at the home of a friend whom I first met at an
aqua-natal swimming class 16 years ago !!
She lives in a rural community in Saddleworth
( not far from Manchester) and we lived there too until 1998.
I took Dan with me as my friend has a son the same age.
I really had a chance to relax and came away feeling positive about the rebuild
( the plans are at the council as we speak)
and with loads of ideas for the decor,
and over a glass of wine & a curry with more local mums
laughed till I cried, literally !!!
