An Open Letter

Dear C

A friend and I were talking the other night, discussing various things. The conversation inevitably turned to boys. We girls like to talk about boys. "Tell me the top ten things you want in a man", she said. I thought and I thought and then I gave her my list of ten magical qualities.

And then I realised that I'd just described you.

1) Short in stature. Not freakishly short and definintely not shorter than me. But short.
2) Dark hair and features.
3) Hairy. You converted me to the wonder of a hairy chest and gorilla like legs.
4) A wonderful cook and knowledge of good wine.
5) Daft. Silly. Immature on occasion. Able to make me laugh till my sides hurt and tears stream down my cheeks.
6) A good job and a passion for that job.
7) A love of dance music and dancing till dawn occasionally. But also a love of nights in with a good meal, nice bottle of wine and a film.
8) The ability to make the perfect gin and tonic. It's all about the limed rim.
9) A love of British comedy (Peep Show, I'm Alan Partridge, Black Books) and willingness to watch an entire series in one sitting.
10) Geekish tendencies.

See? That's you in a nutshell.

I miss you. I'm probably not supposed to say that, but I do.

I just thought you should know.

Helen xx

PS: I wish you could see me now. I'm more 'me' than I've ever been before. I've become the girl I always told you I was, underneath all the crazy. I knew she was in there.

I don't know your story but sometimes it takes time out to discover the 'real' you or I feel in my case to truly grow up. ( I'm 10 years older than you) It's a lovely list and now I'm intrigued to know whats going on. ;0)

It's taken me a long time to find out who I really am. I'm still learning a little bit more every day. My story is nothing compared to yours. A broken heart that's slowly healing. Nothing more than that x

Everyone's heartache is hard for them , whatever the circumstances. Don't belittle your pain it's just as important as mine. I hope it heals quickly. X
