1st April 2016
I’ve always had a thing about dates and today, being the 1st of April has been a significate date that has needed an entry of my thoughts.
We had been invited to a special gathering of ‘the end of an era’.
Tony and Shirley had invited those that had been a part of the Rocking Horse Shop, some of whom would still be, some that had left, and he (Tony) and my Sam, that were son to ‘retire’ from what had been a huge part of their lives together for 18 years.
Just two short weeks time Sam will leave RHS and we will begin our move to our new Cornish life.
The evening went very well; I had arrived late (spouses were invited) and I wondered if my late arrival would be seen badly. There was no way I could have let the urgent call for last minute marking to be done, 500 words and 15 stories to read.
