Thread Name: Class reunion
Subject: RE: Class reunion
A few years ago, I got an invite to my class renunion to celebrate 20 yrs of escape from the old school. As I've moved to the other end of the country, I wasn't too sure of going but went in the end and had a pretty good day. The school was built as an orphanage in the 1870's and hadn't changed much since. Tuck shop in the basement, fives courts etc...(anyone ever played fives?) I took my three teenaged kids who thought that my schooldays must have had a lot in common with a Dickens novel -Hard Times!. I still had dark hair at that time and was amused to see so many grey and bald/balding ex-classmates - unfortunately I've now joined their ranks! Anyway, a few of us got on so well that we arranged to meet at Llandudno later in the year and had a great weekend in a seaside hotel. We met again the following year but somehow the event was just not the same and I've never bothered again. My best mate at school is still a good friend and he's the only one I bother to e-mail or meet on the odd occasion.
