A trip to Paignton to visit my oldest friend, not that she’s really old but she’s the friend who I’ve had the longest! I’ve known Michelle since we were two, we grew up on the same housing estate, our mums used to meet up and gossip over coffee on a daily basis. 43 years on and we are still in touch, over the last few years we haven’t really seen each other much as I was busy with my degree and Michelle was busy caring for her sick Father. I’ve been promising for ages that I would take some family photos for her and I finally got the chance to head down to Paignton on a wet and windy Sunday.
Michelle was the girl at school who all the boys fancied and I was the tall goofy one, nothing much has changed there and Shell still strikes a pretty good pose, although I think Chloé her daughter might be giving her a run for her money!
