2am Friday 14th November (an email from me to my best friend)
'I can't come tomorrow (today!). I'm so sorry, really I am. I really meant to let you know earlier. I really, really did, I was going to phone, I really was.'
7.55am Friday 14th November (her reply)
'You never need to apologise to me. I only wish I could give you a big hug.'
