I have known Aby for over a year now. She has been my supporter, adviser, confidante and most of all friend. We talk in one form or another every day but we have unbelievably only met in real life twice! The first time being at Britmums Live and the second time last week!
We couldn’t wait to get our girlies together and Aby knowing I have the world’s worst sense of direction (truly!) drove the hour or so to Bristol so we could meet up.
For the girls it was love at first sight, they chattered away in their toddler talk immediately holding hands and hugging and kissing each other which was beyond cute! I knew they would hit it off and Baby is as completely adorable as her mama-just as I knew she would be.
We spent some time at my house ate lemon drizzle cake and drank tea, then headed down to my mother in law’s field so the girls could have a go on the pony. Lily dutifully carried the girls around, stopping every now and then only to be coaxed on by Aby or a poke on the backside from Holly our chief child entertainer! We all had a lovely picnic and then found the most exciting toy of all: a water tap and horse bucket! By the end of the day we were all soaking wet and tired beyond belief!
The internet is a powerful place and I am so blessed to have Aby and her beautiful family in my life.
