a friday night date..

1 March 2013

I have a date tonight with one of my best friends Claire. Knowing I have this date tonight has kept me going all week. We are off to indulge ourselves with sushi, to chat about boys (and sex) and natter for a few hours about life and utter nonsense in the rather fancy Green Park area.
Let me just talk for a minute about this girl. She really is one of a kind. Caring, honest, brave, sophisticated (mostly!), down to earth, and maybe one of the weirdest quirkiest women I know. Her love for Alan (her budgie: featured here) is on the same level as my love for Goblin and over the last four or so years she has grown into one of the bravest and most brilliant women I know.
Everything about her makes me proud.
(except when she pets and feeds pigeons - that's just not clean)
Over the past few years Claire has raised thousands of pounds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association in memory of her wonderful Dad and now Claire has decided to run THREE marathons in a MONTH to raise more funds!!
My love and admiration for this girl is sky high and if you would like to show your support for this incredible cause you can donate here.
Bring on 6pm and my date with her!!
