We bought an apartment in Tenerife so that I could spend winter in the sun. My husband came out from the Midlands, where we moved some 20 years ago, to visit me but as he had a meeting in London on the Monday, flew back to Gatwick. On the flight, which he would never normally have taken, he met someone he used to play cricket with 30 years ago when we lived in the London area. They asked him if he'd been to see Lyn and Gordon, who live in Tenerife. Lyn was one of my best friends until we moved to the Midlands and we lost touch as she moved too.
