Well two of our very best friends are moving to Berlin this week. Lisa and I met at Tweekin’ in 1998 (I think) discussing a similarity in taste of males at the time, and have gotten along like a house on fire ever since. Lisa and Ant started going out in 2000 (I think) at a birthday part of mine, and Dave and Ant have gotten along like a house on fire ever since too.
But they are off to the other side of the world this week. And we’ll miss them 🙁
It seems to happen a lot. Back in the 90s, a lot of friends went over for a year or two, and then came back. In the past ten years, so many of our friends have gone to Europe to stay. Most have moved to England: Beta & Aaron, Bec, Brad & Hayley, Dave & Valli, Samantha & Glenn, Monica (started in Ireland). Some moved to India – Silvana & Ben. And now Berlin: Lisa & Ant, and shortly Natacha.
So I’m feeling a bit sad right now.
Off to bed, and to (hopefully) dream of a one month trip to Berlin next year. August 2010 is in the diary.
