What a way to spend a weekend ...... meeting a dear blogger friend on Thursday afternoon, lunching with my brother and sister-in-law yesterday, and today, meeting several schoolfriends whom I hadn't seen for nigh on 50 years.
It was such a pleasure to meet with Val on Thursday afternoon and to have a personally conducted tour of part of the magnificent State Library of Victoria. Alas, there wasn't time to see nearly as much as we wanted to. Definitely a place to visit for those living in or near Melbourne, or for those visiting.
Today my sisters and I attended the Drouin High School 50th Anniversary celebrations. We were a bit ambivalent about going, but had a wonderful day. I met up with quite a few people from my years at the school in the mid 50s, several who were in my class (although none of my closest friends), some whom I had known away from school through sport, church, etc. and even a couple of students whom Richard had taught at Primary School before they moved on to DHS.
When I receive my copies of the photos taken for each decade, I'm sure I'll look at the names and realise that there were yet more people there whom I would love to have caught up with. Nevertheless, we had a thoroughly enjoyable day ..... and what a relief to see that I wasn't the only one that no longer looks like a teenager...lol.
So, dear friends, if you have the opportunity to attend a school reunion, do make the effort to go. I'm sure you'll have a great time too.
