I’ve always been lucky to have a very close bond with my sister. We see each other pretty much every day, send countless messages and there’s always that lunchtime phone call. Since moving house last September, it means that I can actually see her house from the girls bedroom and it’s literally a 30 second walk away. To some this may seem their idea of hell to be so close to their family, but I absolutely love it and cannot imagine not being close to them.
Since we lost our Mom just over two years ago, we have become even closer. We try to go out for a meal with our partners every month and we go shopping to where we all used to go as that’s where Mom used to go to the dentist. We used to make it into a day out and introduced me to the fun of charity shops.
It’s lovely that we still are keeping on that tradition albeit at times hard that we are one less on our trip. It’s nice to be able to spend time just us as we rarely get to without concentration being diverted and conversations interrupted by three little people.
I managed to get loads of bargains and bought the most gorgeous Biba shoes in the sale.
Despite getting lost on the way home (as ALWAYS) I loved spending the day with my big sister. I’m so lucky that we are so close and have such a close bond. I do hope that when my kids get older, they get to be the same as no one knows you better than your big sister!
