After just 9.5 months I finally got to meet Hayley, Joely and Charlotte! It’s ridiculous it took so long but it felt like it was worth it. A night of drinking at the Swatter’s Carr (thank goodness for the app!) and then O’Connells, followed by my first trip to Flares in over a decade (it really hasn’t changed!) it felt like the first good night out I’ve had in Middlesbrough since I was at University.
Seeing you around you friends made me so happy, and you never left me feeling awkward or out of place which could have been easy to do. It was such a good time and getting to meet so many new people, which could have been uncomfortable, was actually a pleasure because I was with you. You’re definitely funnier than your friends, better looking and certainly have the best eyebrows!
