Simply a moment - July
I haven't made a friends request as I wanted to send this message first. When I left Wales all those years ago I was a very angry and bitter person and said and did things which, in time, I came to regret - foremost amongst these was falling out with your good self.
I realise that this is from someone who really hurt me, someone I haven't thought of in nearly 20 years, someone I had vowed never to speak to again. He was one of the guys that regularly played in the Role Playing games sessions that took place in our house.
I read the rest of the message and there is just something about the words and the way he uses them that makes me believe that he is being sincere. I show it to Mr M without commenting and he stays silent for a minute. "Sounds like he's finally getting those chips off his shoulders", he says, turning back to try and complete another level on Candy Crush Saga. This confirms my reaction to the message. I begin to type
"So where's this friend request?" I ask "I can't accept you if you don't send it can I?" I click reply and within seconds I get an answer.
I am so glad to have him back on the Christmas card list
