This beautiful young woman grew up next door for twenty years. Her parents then shifted into Timaru but we never lost touch. Whenever Anna or her brother come back to visit their parents they always come out for a visit. Peter and his wife and young family came out Christmas eve and today Anna called.
2005 when I had my first ever trip to London they met up with me and each showed me around London for a day. Showed me the highlights of London, taught me to use the tubes and buses etc. I say it always pays to be nice to the kids next door as you never know when you might need them.
They were such great neighbours and the pair of them always came over Christmas morning early in their pyjamas to show us what they got from Santa Claus. Such happy memories and now that I am getting older they still don't forget those days. They both live and work in Auckland now.
