friendship

About three years ago, a friend gave it to me a printed fabric ready to cut out two dolls. A blogger friend suggested the names for them, and as they were two English ladies, she said "Hermione and Gertrude" it will fit all right for them. I meant to sell them at some Summer Craft Fair; but then, a friend opened a small jewelry shop, and asked me to help her with it.
She fell in love with Hermione and Gertrude, so the shop became their home as our avatars. I was Gertrude and she was Hermione.
We had a lot of fun at the shop, crafting, repairing and selling. Frequently, we repaired old, loved jewelry: fake pearl necklaces, some aunt or grandmother's legacy, that we stringed with knots as if it were the Queen's one.
I've been in the shop for about a year and a half. Then, my husband retired and we decided to stay at our holiday home for a long time...
From time to time, I came back to check the bills and the house, and we talk about how we were happy at the shop...
Suddenly, the 1st of August, the day of her Birthday, Serena-Hermione, left alone Juana-Gertrude...They  will remember me of our friendship for ever, sweet Serena...
And I will miss you always...

This sounds like a sad story... But you have good memories to keep, and that is important.
