Well I’m just slightly behind on these 🙈 please forgive me!
Today, Day 6.
I don’t think I really need to tell you how important you are to me because, well I think you know, but I will because I can.
I fucking love you.
I might not have used my degree but the fact I got to meet you – well that is worth the Student Loan debt 😂
I’m so glad I get to do life knowing you.
I sometimes forget how much we’ve changed since we first met. I mean… jeez louise.
I still remember the first time we met.
Stood in that lecture hall to listen to Ursula harp on about Erasmus – we both wanted something more out of uni, hunting for an adventure.
“My brother’s girlfriend did it and said it was just one big party” – direct quote from you.
Theeee best 4 months.
We worked, we played, we laughed, we walked out of university lectures and placements (oops) because we’d rather be at home in one of our apartments having a cup of tea and listening to emo music.
There are far too many memories and private jokes for me to list here but a couple of my favourites are (and these won’t make sense to anyone but us)
“Yeah, yeah, yeah”
“DONT LET THEM GET THE BIKES”
“Sea bass (sea bass), Scallops (scallops)”
We have the same sense of humour and I knew we were friends for life when we would lay in bed laughing for hours through the night, knowing that we’d regret it in the morning because we actually had to be adults and teach classes of impressionable Spanish children – imagine they will be about 16 now?! Might be older actually… 18? Sweet lord.
You are thoughtful, generous, kind, make a killer cup of tea. You always have an ear for anyone and you never make people feel like they’re a burden. You’ve been there for me through some of theeee worst times and through all of my mistakes (there’s been a few). Even though I’m sure there were times you wanted to shake me and tell me to buck up.
You also are the most incredible mother to those two incredible boys – they are a credit to you. If I ever have children (that little girl you were talking about the other day) I can only hope to be half the mum you are and I’d be chuffed with that. I love them more than life. I hope you know that.
You deserve all the happiness in the world.
One in a million.
Love you, pal.
