We all have THAT friend. The one that is always there for us whenever we need them. They don't judge anything we say or do and are just there. Whether we see them every week or whenever we can, we all have our person.
I am very lucky to have that friend. I have only known her for just over a year but it feels like we've been friends a life time. We met through my sister in law on her hen do and we both have children the same age. My son Noah & her daughter are born 8 days apart. We met again at my sister in law's wedding and set up a play date as we thought it would be lovely for the babies to get together. And from that play date our friendship has grown. We are both born within weeks of each other in the same year and have so much in common. She really does make me smile when I'm feeling pretty rubbish about things. We can sit in a room with the kids running around like crazy loons not saying a word but both feel completely comfortable in the silence (our silence as the kids are NEVER silent!). This to me has got to be one of the greatest qualities of an amazing friendship.
We get together at least once a week, sometimes twice, for the kids to play and for us to drink tea (lots of tea), eat cake and chat (LOADS!).
She is always there for me when I need her and she always has a hug ready for when I need it. But most of all I can rely on her. We can both sit there and winge the whole time we are together but still go away having had a lovely day. She's what you call a best friend. I know I can call on her day or night and she will be there to help or to just lend an ear. We laugh about the silliest of things and are both as bonkers as each other. I'm very lucky to have found her and that I can call her my friend.
