quem tem amigos…

the sea

"Quem tem amigos não morre na praia"

The sentence above is a Portuguese saying I quite like and that warms my heart every single time. Translating it to the letter, if one has friends, one does not die at the beach. It's so true!

Today, I lost my wallet. It may still turn up and LMJ has several friends engaged in a positive thinking finger crossing activity! However, it has not turned up yet.

This afternoon I was upset and slightly panicky and annoyed and hungry and with an almost battery free mobile phone and moneyless.
*insert friend moment*
Later on this afternoon I was upset and slightly panicky and annoyed BUT I had company and food and a working phone and money.

Not so bad after all, hey?!

    Great saying. You can cancel your cards, its the drivers license–at least here in jersey thats a pain in the a– to replace. Good luck finding it.
