Two years ago I went up to see Adam's first fight in Birmingham. Now - via Facebook - I can follow him campaign in Thailand. Sad to see he lost yesterday.
Tess closed her art school and went travelling last year (she is starting a job in the Caribbean next month), but again via Facebook (as she's Dutch) I can still share a joke when Holland beat England at cricket.
I was very sniffy about Facebook and Twitter at first.
