A coffee as big as my heart
Seven years ago I finished my Alevels, said goodbye to my childhood and went out into the world. Before I did I made a pact with my best friends that we'd meet again when we were 25 on the steps of the National Gallery and see what we had made of life outside our school gates. On Saturday we fulfilled our 18-year-old selves' promise.
When I left school only a handful of students in America had heard of Facebook, and Twitter was nonexistent, and our first year of university we sent each other postcards and mix cds and chatted on msn messenger - that really makes me feel old!
Although I moved back home to London after University, most of my school and university friends are spread over the country from Glasgow to Southampton, and I really treasure that time when we used to spend all day together and then talk for hours every evening about what we did all day.
I miss my friends and I so loved getting to spend a day just eating and drinking and catching up as if we were 18 again and no time had passed at all. If you are seeing your best friends this week make sure you tell them how awesome they are!
