I've had many first loves. Things, people, foods, places, moments... the list goes on and on. Here are just two of them.
My Teddy Eddy.
Eddy is just about the most reliable man that I have ever known. I've had him since I was a baby and he has traveled the world with me since.
Actually, that's not entirely true right now as I was banned from travelling internationally with him when I forgot him in a Motel 6 in the U.S and my Dad had to take a hundred mile round trip back to the motel to collect him. I cried for DAYS when I thought I lost him. It was fun for no-one on the holiday.
I was about 17.
And that sad fact either shows how much I love him or how much I needed to get a boyfriend.
The jury is still out on that one.
She technically counts as one of my first loves as I thought she was pretty cool from the moment she was born and at the time my capacity for love was limited to Eddy (see above) my Mum and my Dad.
My life has been made all the much funnier, ridiculous and lovely for having Tash as my sister.
One aspect of our relationship that I love the most is the pictures that we Whatsapp each other on a regular basis. This gems is one of them.
p.s Sis-wa...aren't you gutted you don't have a blog for all those silly photos of me to be put on!
p.p.s I'm secretly a bit jealous as I don't look half that nice first thing brushing my teeth.
