Thank-you for being here for me this year. Your unwavering support, total blind faith in me and insistence I wear lipstick every day have got me through some days which would have been dark if it hadn’t been for your unwavering light. Your friendship means the world to me. I knew that girl I met thirty years ago piercing her nose in the common room was going to change the world, but I didn’t realise you would also shape mine. You’re kind, strong, brave and have a pretty disgusting sense of humour, but oh I love you!
You've got troubles, and I've got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We stick together and can see it through
Cause you've got a friend in me.
Life was made for good friends and great adventures, so they say. After all those wonderful years of just the two of us, I wanted to use your extra-special birthday to tell you what I have always known: you are my greatest friend and the years have been our greatest adventure. Thank-you for teaching me what true friendship is, and here’s to many more years of utter fun - albeit now with two added doses of chaos!
Love always, your daughter and granddaughters xxxx
