Well, my “summer holiday”…. This involved travelling in a sweltering hot June through fourteen counties, and ending up based in north London. It was time without hubby (boohoo!) seeing family and friends old and new (hooray!). The “old” friends were at a reunion and at a sports event. But for me the highlights were seeing several fellow-adoptees – my new ‘old friends’. I was able to spend time with each one chatting a lot (of course!) and doing something enjoyable together such as strolling in a leafy park or visiting The National Gallery.
