Another fabulous prompt from Tara this week. It made me think about my friendships and how you have friends that you have known forever and friends that are simply the best.
T (aka Dizzy) is my oldest friend, we met when we were both just 14 yrs old. Although we have never lived in the same city (T in Manchester and myself originally from Carlisle before becoming a tourist who stayed in Great Yarmouth), we always keep in touch. In fact we have only met up 6 times in 13 years, however this doesn’t seem matter. We both know that if we need the other we are just a phone call or text away.
Lou is my best friend, our paths crossed whilst at work but in different departments. I then transferred into her department whilst she was on maternity leave. On one of our many work nights out we chatted and clicked (she hasn’t been able to shake me off since). She has been there to organise my hen night, having children, changing jobs, losing family members and whenever I need her.
