Story Tellers Assignment: How I Met My Best Friend

I’ve known my best friend all my life – in fact, we first met the very day I was born. You’ve probably guessed her identity from that statement alone. The woman above is not just my Mum, she’s my best friend too.

Over the years, our friendship has just kept growing and now we’re also gig buddies. In the last year, we’ve seen Biffy Clyro, The Killers, Patrick Stump and Snow Patrol (all in ‘intimately’ sized venues just to make you jealous). I have to thank my Mum for my love of music and I have to further thank her for understanding mine. Somehow, she manages to put up with all my annoyingly particular musical obsessions – and all my other irritating mannerisms for that matter. Thank you Mum – you really are my best friend.

So, in advance of next Sunday (which is Mother’s Day in the UK), I’d like to give a shout out to my fave friend.
