Bridget and Colin !!

Being far from my first home is something that I sometimes wrestle with... but after i got married home is where i am with my wonderful husband. Back in Uganda, while i was a university i lived with one of my close friends Bridget. she was my flat mate a wonderful one at that. I hadn't met her for the first time at the campus we in fact went to the same primary school thought we didn't talk much but we became quite close at uni she was like a big sister to me since she was the more responsible one of the two of us. After we finished uni we both drifted into different ways didn't see much of each other but kept in touch. she got married and we even drifted more apart. but kept in touch occasionally. I then got married and moved to south Africa and didn't really get the chance to chat and all. After getting married I went to Uganda for my sisters wedding hoping i would get to see her but because of different arrangements we just spoke on the phone and didn't meet up , i came back to south Africa,. then one day i got a text message she was arriving at Jhb the following day , Wayne and i rushed to meet her at the airport she was on transit to Botswana and we didn't see each other as she wasn't allowed to come to the domestic departures to which we had access. Then in December she sent another text message this time she was coming to South Africa-Capetown so we would meet before their connecting flight, it turns out, the timing was wrong, at the time they arrived at Jhb Wayne and i were in Durban so we missed each other. Then eventually last week she sent me another text and this time they were spending two days in Jhb so we made it and managed to see each other after three years of missing one another as her hubby Collin put it " we were like in the movies" so a happy get together in the end. It was great to catchup over dinner and talk till late in the night. We had a wonderful time and looking forward to catching up again sometime soon. It was a late night as we got home after mid night. We paid the following day coz we use to going to bed at 8.30pm but it was so worth it.

What a funny chain of missed connections! I hate it when that happens! I'm glad you were able to connect!
