In recent weeks/months I've spent quite a considerable amount of time with my dearest friends and although that may not seem such a big thing, I only have 2 or 3 friends that live in my area so it's always a bit of a mission to see them. My nearest and dearest friends are all dotted around the country and unfortunately for me, means I don't get to see them as much as I want to.
None of my friends know about this little corner of the internet I have - they think it's weird that I use 'the twitter' let alone write a blog occasionally but I wanted to dedicate this post to these wonderful human beings who really make me smile all of the time, even though they won't ever see it.
I truly believe that I am extremely lucky to have such wonderful friends and so many 'best' friends that have become a huge part of my life. I don't have a big family and so my friends play a huge part in my life and this has really shown through in recent weeks.
A few weeks ago, my Nanna passed away very unexpectedly and I was actually spending the weekend with my Uni friends (we all have different group names for friends don't we?). I was 3 1/2 hours away from home and didn't really know what to do with myself to be honest. I've experienced my fair share of loss (and someone else's share) but it really doesn't get any easier getting the dreaded news. But, being with some of most wonderful ladies (and gents) that I know really did something to soften the blow. They may not have realised what they had done, but they made me feel completely normal for a little while - they comforted me, made me laugh and let me cry without any judgement.
Over the past few weeks, I've busied myself with my friends - I've had a raodtrip to Glasgow to see a friend who moved up there way back in April; then headed down to London for a surprise hello to another who has been roadtrippin it around USA since April and had a few local friend dates in between and it's been awesome!
I cannot express my love enough for the friendship groups I have in my life and although I may complain from time to time that any arrangements fall to me to make, I actually don't mind if it means spending time with them!
If you have some awesome friends in your life, let them know - shout it from the roof tops and keep a good grip on them - good friendships are hard to find!
