Today I… was very happy to get a call from my best friend, Donna. We have known each other for 20 years (scary, huh?).
We have shared a lot in that time…losing our parents, break ups, divorces, single parenting, but what i remember most is the laughter. That time I dyed my hair bright orange on the morning we went on holiday. Singing ‘Macho Man’ wearing a kids toy hard hat. Watching Phoenix Nights. The incident at the Christmas market (should’ve gone to Specsavers!) The courtesy cough. Broccoli. This all sounds like rubbish to the casual reader, but I am chuckling as I write this and I know she will be doing the same when she reads it.
We still live a few miles apart, but nearer than we used to. Even when we don’t see each other for a while, i always know that she is there if i need her, and vice versa. When we do meet we inevitably end up in fits of giggles that only we find hilarious. I literally ached after a weekend camping together. It was the best feeling.
So today I …salute my BFF. I love you, I am very proud of you for packing up smoking and can’t wait to meet up in a couple of weeks xxx
