My Bridge Farewell
My last Bridge morning was on Thursday, 18 January at Annie Foote's place as usual. We had a pretty full house of three tables which is wonderful. These friends at Bridge were the friends I saw the most and they are the loveliest of people. I am so happy to have met them and hope that we still keep in touch - especially those who have Canberra connections.
We had a lovely morning tea which we always had but I was given two gorgeous bunches of flowers and two beautiful cards, a personal one from my Bridge partner Annie and one group card.

Although I bitched and moaned about the early 9.00 start time, I loved my Bridge and never failed to turn up unless I was off island - even at my worst (ie absess on tooth etc) I would never let my friends down. Annie Walker and I were always partners and we probably won 50 percent of our games and our opposition was always Annie Foote and Barbara. I loved these ladies.

I started back at my old place of work on a temporary basis in early March and Andrew's back at his old school, Tom is going to CIT at Bruce and Rob is back on the island.
Sometimes I feel that Norfolk never really happened and so I am glad to have created this blog for me to remember those special years of my life.
I have to say that I really did lead a charmed life on Norfolk Island and as Rob said, I really did get the better end of the deal.
Thanks Norfolk Island for everything. I loved the island, the people, the shops, everything.
