"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain
April

How did you meet your oldest friend?

I have some friends who I have known since I was at school, and I love being able to catch up with them whenever I can.

Do you have any old friends? Do you still speak to them?

Tell us about how you met!

    I am still in contact with a couple of schoolfriends I knew at primary school, when I was about 9 or 10. I am also in touch with a few more who I met at secondary school, from 11 years old. As I live abroad, I don't speak to them so much face to face, but I will be seeing one classmate this evening who I have known since I was 11. Facebook helps us keep up to date however.

    Yes, I think that Facebook really is good for things like that, as it means that it doesn't matter where you are in the world, you will still be able to speak to people.

    Most of my more recent friends however, I think I've met on my travels, sitting next to them in a café or train for example.

    I always find that it is in the most random situations where you will meet the friends that you keep for the longest.
