Let me count the ways

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.'

Good for her. I could use a couple of friends like that! Sadly, you can't take friends with you when you go to work abroad...

The season finale of the NHRA's Powerade High pressure blower Series began with Pedregon holding a 12-point Industrial fan edge over Wilkerson and a 39-point Industrial blower lead over Hight.A near capacity crowd -- perhaps Commercial blower sensing that the title could be decided early -- had maneuvered ugg boots around shuttered freeways and other roads closed by the Wholesale Jewelry Southern California brush fires pressure blower and arrived on time for the pressure blowers opening round.It began with Pedregon advancing fans to the semifinals uggs by knocking out Jerry wholesale ugg boots Toliver.Then Wilkerson lost blowers to 14-time champion John Force.

Mary ~ that would be, for me, the major downside of moving around a lot.

Luos ~ Hello, I have no idea what you are talking about, but welcome anyway.

Worldy ~ bottoms up to that!

Kanani ~ I am grateful every day for having bumped into her.

So it''s not just 'being in love means you never have to say you're sorry' it also applies to just loving someone?
I'm addicted to apologising and have been known to do it before the act- as it were.

Pat ~ I'm the same, I even try and invent new ways of doing it because I feel I'm constantly repeating myself, especially: 'I'm so sorry I'm late.'

Debra ~ she really is. I'm very lucky with my friends.

Savannah ~ thanks! XXXXXX
