Re-united after 9 Years!

A few months back now I got a message from a school friend who I used to be really good friends with saying she was coming back to England in June to visit (She now lives in Australia). Super excited I told her I definitely wanted to meet her and we would have to arrange something closer to the time.

Last night, after finally finishing my, what seemed to be a super long, day at work I headed to St Pancras to meet her and her boyfriend, well I should say fiancé. Wow that sounds strange, don’t know why. 

I could still pick her out from the people walking towards me, 9 years really hadn’t changed us all that much! Obviously she had the Australian accent, which I love, and we did look a little different. And we’re now grown up :/

Alex was with me too and we all wandered out of the station to explore the surrounding area for a bar to drink in. Yes, I’m not drinking because of my half marathon – I had a lovely refreshing J20 and soda 🙂 I know, good girl, me. 

The four of us sat around a little table in O’Neills and caught up for quite a while – Australia, our hometown, singapore, holidays, memories. The conversation even went on to snakes and spiders – yes thanks Alex! haha. 

It was an absolutely lovely evening! I am so pleased I got to see Josie on her visit back to England, that she made time for me and that I got to meet her lovely fiancé! I always remember her leaving when I was in year 9, and thinking how hard it must have been to leave friends and family behind, but it’s amazing to see how happy she is over there and how much she has grown as a person.

I am gutted I didn’t get a photo, but i did get this:


so perhaps this is the perfect excuse for a trip to Australia. Who knows where next year will take me! Already looking at flight prices…

      It really is. I couldn’t believe it had been so long! SO much to catch up on. Me too, the flights don’t look too bad, so it all depends on whether i can save and have the time off to do a bit of travelling too 🙂 make the most of it!
      Would love to go to Thailand too! Do you prefer it there? (Been reading your blog 🙂 )
