I have a friend who was born and lived in South Africa. When she was a little girl at school, the class teacher left, and the girls had a collection to buy her a book. They all signed the inside page of the book so that she would remember them. My friend grew up and after going to University, came to visit England, meaning to look around and return to South Africa. However, she met the love of her life, married him and remained here. They had two sons, who now have children of their own.
