It’s very poignant, in a Hello Magazine type way that today, on the first anniversary of our moving to The Towers, we have received a card from Cheryl and Andrew the people who moved into The Castle after us.
It was nice to find out that our very much missed Jade House is now their Chinese of choice and we have vowed that the next time we stay with Lucy we will treat ourselves, and Lucy, naturally, to a feast of all our favourite dishes …… no one in Evesham does a crispy chilli beef or Cantonese sweet and sour pork like Jade House.
They also sent us a picture of “what was once” our beloved pond ……. they obviously love it as much as we did ……. and there was Nigel’s very favourite white koi at the bottom, he must be absolutely mahoooooosive now, as he was and still is the first to appear when food was about …… this was when Nigel began to get a little misty eyed ……….
…….. so I sent him to just look out of the window to see where we too have found ourselves, to think about how far we have all come in the last year, and remember our adventures and discoveries and a very different way of life ………
……… perhaps we can’t celebrate with a Jade House 36, 46, 57 and extra 60, 63 and two 66’s ……. but Evesham is home ….. swans, river, the school run with Iris and Bertie and so many coffee shops that we still haven’t visited them all! A very Happy Anniversary to us all, and many, many more of them to come!!!!!!! As Iris’s favourite author, Enid Blyton would say …….”Hip Hip Horray to us with lashings of ginger beer!”
