OMG, when Richard Morwood and Mandy English began dating recently they had no idea they had already made a connection some 30 years prior. When Mandy was 13 she chucked a “message in a bottle” into the sea during a school excursion to Scotland and guess what? Yep, it was Richard who found it. Inside the bottle was a note requesting whoever found it to be her pen pal. Richard, on the insistence of his mother, sent a postcard back to Mandy but she never responded. Mandy recently discovered the postcard and was shocked to realize her current boyfriend had the same name. When quizzed Richard admitted it was he who had sent the card.
