pic of the day - friendship

As I have already mentioned, today is the tenth anniversary of our wide-eyed, naive arrival in the UK. For those of you who are my Facebook friends, I have written a more personal account as a FB note.

One of the most difficult things to deal with was the loss of our close friends and extended family. Being such a cultural misfit made it extremely tough to form real friendships of the sort that we were accustomed to.

However, things on that front have begun to change. And when a friend remembers unprompted that today is The Day and arrives with a homemade carrot cake with cream cheese icing (my favourite) still warm from the oven, you know things are are looking up!

BTW it was whole when it arrived!
