The Gallery: Friends

As most of you know, my best friend lives in Dubai.  She does my box in most of the time, I usually don't agree with her choices, and we are like chalk and cheese, but I love her lots.  Because we are so different, we have remained friends for nearly 23 years now.

I miss her terribly, especially now that I have Samantha.  She wasn't here for her birth, and she's not going to see her now until she's 6 months old.  Thank goodness for Skype, email, Whatsapp and Facebook; I can send her pictures so she's not missing out.  I'm just gutted that Samantha won't get to know her well.

These are some of my favourite photos of us:








And also, Samantha has been making new friends too:

The Gallery A Family Story

Six years ago, I was a young 22 year old in the final year of my Nursing Degree.  Stressed out to the max with final exams, placements, and assignments, my best friend took me down the pub for a drink and a girly chat.
















Unbeknownst to me, she had planned for her boyfriend and his friend to show up.  His friend was 28, funny, charming, and chatty.   



 The next day, he phoned and asked me out.  Four years later, we got married!


And this year, on January 19th, at 7.08pm, we welcomed our gorgeous daughter Samantha into the world.


She is now 3 weeks old, and we are such a happy little family.
