HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LITTLE FIE FIE
This post is for you Sophie… You’re 19 and boy does it make me feel old saying that. Im only 22 but having a best friend that has only just turned 19 makes me feel like an absolute granny. I guess its a good thing as you’ll keep me young…even though I do already look young enough.
I properly became friends with you on the 3rd December 2016….I say properly friends because lets face before then we were just people who worked together who had random convos in the fitting room before getting told off for talking. It’s funny when I look back, we got on from the moment we met…we so easily could have a conversation. Usually it was about your hair and trying to work out whether you’d suit a fringe or not. I loved your fringeless hair but you went and got one anyway. Back to the 3rd of December. That day was of course the day we went to The Clothes Show and the most exciting part of our day was taking boomerangs against an ugly grey wall and making absolute tits out of ourselves because well thats what we do best. That was the highlight of our day and we’d both agree on that one. That fabulous day was followed by the work christmas party and I never expected you to be as wild as were that night. I forgot what it was like to be drunk at 18, way more fun and so much more care free. You made me laugh so much because I could see 18 year old Charlotte in you. Theres so many things that I see in you that remind me of me but we are so different in many ways at the same time. Maybe thats what makes us a perfect match and all that. When we met, I never expected us to become such good friends as we are today like I thought I was gunna be stuck living back at home with no friends and my parents. I adore my parents but they were proper turning me into a full time granny. Since meeting you I’m more of a part time granny. I find it so weird that after that one day at The Clothes Show, we just became the bestest of friends and it happened so quickly.
Within 4 months of knowing each other, we’d already been on holiday together which is impressive if you ask me cause you could be an absolute randomer who’s using me for an experiment or something who knows. That holiday was one of the best I have been on. I can get very anxious on planes and there was no anxiety in the slightest and thats all because of you. I have full trust in you that if something was to go wrong you would be there for me to help me through it, you wouldn’t laugh or make me feel uncomfortable and that makes me feel so safe and comfortable around you. That holiday was a turning point for me as it made me realise how much of a fabulous friend you are and how I would never ever want to loose you as a friend. You’re like my little sister from another mister. I love that I can teach you things about life like an older sister would but I can also share fun moments and secrets with you that will stay just between us. Our friendship is something I am so grateful for and appreciate more than I could ever express. I may have made a few mistakes and slipped up but thats just about learning what each other are like. Lets face it we’ve only been friends for 8 months which is quite a long time but in the grande scheme of things its nothing. We haven’t had the chance to properly learn everything about each other. There is so much more to learn and to experience together. I love you from the bottom of my heart and to pluto and back. I cant wait to spend more fun, happy, sad, stressful, exciting and funny moments with you. We can only have more and more now that we get to be VM’s together…. Here’s to years of fab friendship…I’m pretending to raise a jagerbomb right now.
Happy Birthday Soph, I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend with your favourite people. You mean the absolute world
