What a lovely topic for this week’s Gallery – Friendship! Lots of photos instantly popped into my head! But then I remembered that not everyone “likes” to be on the internet! So all those lovely photos of laughing and being together “are no good”.
Then I remembered this ring! A fabulous example of friendship! I took the photo today in the glorious sunshine.
We bought it when we were around 15/ 16 years old. Being at an international school, people always came and went. One of us had moved back to Austria and the other three had come to visit. On the spur of the moment, we bought 4 simple thin silver rings, one each. Our friendship rings! (Girls, was it at the jewellers in Purkersdorf?! Or was it in Vienna? I think it was Purkersdorf)
Out of the 4 friends, one of them is God Mother to Red Ted. One of them will be God Mother to Pip Squeak. The third, I sadly don’t speak to any more. I think we will be friends again one day, but it will take time. We shall see. I am so pleased to still have the other two in my life!
I know that Pip Squeak’s God Mother will see this straight away – she subscribes to the blog and I know that Red Ted’s God Mother will see sometime this week, as she regularly dips in and out. I suspect that Nr 3 MAY see it, as she does like to know what everyone is upto…
What I also want to say about this ring, is that about 8 years ago, we were burgled and pretty much all my jewellery was stolen – precious items with huge sentimental value. No idea why this ring remained. It was meant to be I guess!
