A coincidence story from a reader.
I see from your other blog, Mike, that you are in Cornwall. This reminded me of a coincidence I had in Newquay.
I was on holiday and was on Fistral beach with my wife. We got talking to a couple near to where we were sitting.
The conversation flowed and the wife mentioned she once lived in Hayes. I told her my parents used to live in Hayes as well.
"Whereabouts in Hayes were they?" she asked.
"On the Barnhill estate," I answered.
"I was in Atlee Road," she said.
"That's where my parents were as well" I answered.
It turned out that when young she knew my parents, as she lived next door to them!
It's a small world at times.

P.S. Another coincidence I was born in Hayes - Mike.
