New friends who discovered our fathers were raised as neighbours.
On my first day at a new school where I knew no one, a girl approached me to befriend me as I looked so lost. We began to spend a lot of time together when we could though we lived in different towns. One day she mentioned the street that her gran lived in, and I was shocked as my grandmother lived there also. We discovered that our fathers had grown up together (living almost opposite eachother)and played cricket together, so it was nice that we were able to get them together too. Furthermore, my mother as a child had played with my friends father as they had mutual friends who owned a farm and they were often there at the same time, before she even met my father.39 years later, we are still great friends and all of our parents are still alive and occasionally get to meet up. We often marvel at all of this and how out of 150 pupils she chose me to befriend.
