Now, twenty-nine years after that first meeting with Carol, he has a daughter of eighteen, Kate, from a marriage to George Meadows who had a medical condition that shortened her life and he has been a widower for the last twenty months. Professionally, he is teaching in a school in Sussex and is also seconded to the local authority as an I.T. consultant for one day a week. It was in this capacity that he met Carol for the second time. She is now the head teacher of a primary school near Southwick.At the end of her school career Kate is going on to university to train as a teacher but in the summer after leaving school, she and her friend Linda go to Edinburgh for the festival.

On their return they tell Charlie that they have decided to take a gap year and go travelling before starting the next phase of their life.Over the next few years Charlie continues his career but, because of the constant stream of government initiatives, finds it increasingly difficult to cope with the demands of his job. He is now expected to teach in ways that are alien to him and with little room to stamp his own personality and sense of fun into the classroom and is swamped by paperwork. As he and Carol spend so much time together they realise that two houses are a luxury they can do without and decide to sell one and move in together.

Carol meanwhile is due to reach the end of her career when she is sixty and Charlie is fifty-three and they decide to take stock of their lives and what they are going to do. Charlie talks through the options with his head teacher and decides to ask the county for an early retirement. Other options he and Carol consider are buying a shop, a campsite or a large house they can run as a guesthouse.

In the meantime they hire a small motor caravan and decide to do some travelling, which will determine whether they can live and work together.Kate meanwhile has completed her degree and is working in Hampshire in a small village school. She and Linda have put their earlier affair behind them and both are happy with new relationships, Kate with a young doctor, Robert, and Linda with the relief manager, Andrew, of the estate agents where she has been working for some time.

They are still the best of friends and share much of their spare time together with their partners. Kate has a series of relationships before settling with James Kennedy, a promising lawyer who is sent to Australia and New Zealand on a two-year secondment, taking Kate, now his fiancée with him. Linda also accepts a proposal from Andrew.Charlie is introduced to Friends Reunited by his oldest friend, Nick, and discovers a website where he starts to get in touch with old school friends and people he had known at college, and wonders about a reunion.Once he and Carol are both retired they take a trip to see James and Kate in Australia, and to have a holiday in New Zealand, a place they have always dreamed of visiting.
