Sunday 23 October
So I know I said I would try and blog about more interesting things. A few quite interesting things has happened since that statement buuuuut I haven't really felt like blogging about it. So I'm sorry maybe I'll talk about it someday...
Anywho, I had quite the throwback moment today. Me and my mom were invited to a birthday brunch by two of our oldest friends. When I say oldest I mean that I've pretty much known these people all my life! So in a way they're family, I'll explain it:
My mom was young when she had me, so she went to mom group for young mothers. There she met Emma. Emma's kid is Oliver. Because my mom and her were pretty much the only other friend they had with a kid they became best friends. I mean they did everything together, so me and Oliver became sort of siblings. So for a really long time we were all a little family, we even celebrated Christmas together. But a couple of years ago my mom and Emma had a fallout, but they're friends again. Emma and Oliver's birthdays are close so they decided to celebrate it together with a birthday brunch.
I usually get nervous in settings where I have to meet a lot of new people or people that I don't know too well. So I was a anxious about going alone. And then there was the whole thing of what to buy them!? What do you buy for to a son and mother? I procrastinated getting the gifts until two hours before going. And I still had no clue what to get them. While walking around frantically wondering what to get, I walked by a flower shop and saw these beautiful sunflowers 🌻 and I thought "Perfect!" I mean who doesn't like sunflowers? So I bought them a bouquet each. And made my way to the party.
They live sorta far away from me and I walk everywhere so I thought I'd give myself more time. But I must walk faster than I thought because I ended up being there twenty minutes too early. So I sat myself on a bench and called Coco for some company.
The brunch turned out great, mean it was a little awkward at times, but it was alright. It was really nice seeing people I haven't seen for years, even though we weren't that close before. And I could tell that both Emma and Oliver was happy that I decided to come. And they loved the flowers too! Hahah Emma brought out some pictures of me and Oliver as kids. We truly were like brother and sister.
Look how pretty
See you soon xx 🌻
