I have the most amazing little group of friends that anyone could wish for, we all live in different parts of the country and one lives hundreds of miles away in Turkey, we all come from different backgrounds and have different family status but as a group we are always there for each other and have helped each other through some of the happiest times in our lives and some of the hardest.
We laugh together, cry together, tell each other secrets, ask for and give advice on anything and everything and even though we have only been friends for a couple of years it feels like we have known each other for ever.
When you’re having a hard time and don’t want to burden others with what’s going on my friends have this way of knowing something isn’t quite right so they plot together to do something amazing to cheer you up. I’ve been one of the plotters on several occasions and I never for one second thought that the day would come where my friends would get together to cheer me up. I’m superwoman, I take on more than the average woman and I plod through trying not to complain about my work/life load and just get on with it but recently I’ve not done a very good job and my superwoman cape was getting a little bit frayed around the edges.
My amazing friends all know each other so well that when we cheer each other up with a token of our love and friendship it’s so perfect that it always brings tears and it was no different a couple of weeks ago when over the course of a couple of days I received a series of gifts.
This candle was the first gift to arrive and was very much appreciated as Arthur had smashed my other Jo Malone candle by knocking it off the fireplace only a week before. It smells amazing and each time I walk into my study it makes me think of my amazing friends.
This Chamilia hug charm is another cherished gift, sometimes you just need to know there is someone out there who is thinking about you and this charm does just that.
I also received my favourite Turkish Delight sweets and both Arthur and Lucie received a little something too, my friends always think about everyone not just the person in question which is what makes them so amazing.
I know some of my friends read my blog now and again so I just wanted to thank them all again and let them know how amazing I think they are, each and every one of them and how important they are to me.
