In September I moved to Spain for a year, and left behind my friend Jonny. Selfishly, I decided to study in another country without this charming boy stuck to my hip.
It was a cruel and heartless thing to do and we have been struggling to survive without the other half!!
We met on the interview day for university. He was tall, blonde and his Dad had a moustache...a winning combination by all accounts!! A-level results arrived and we both ended up going to the same uni.
From then on we did everything together......partying, living, cooking, running, lab reports, fancy dress, fitness sessions, duvet movie dates.....the list goes on, I won't bore you with all the details!
I'd found an amazing friend and we could discuss engineering (I joke), sport and nothing until the cows come home!
Both me and my grades are suffering without having Jonny around, so whilst home over Christmas a visit to our house at uni was essential :)
An obligatory pub meal on the friday night was charming...we even managed to shotgun a table by the fire. (A pub serving Nachos.....how could I say no!) Being in Spain, pub meals are a mega treat so I went all out and had the epic gammon steak, feeling like a real man! And the chips were oh so good, thick with a nice crisp outer and a smooth, soft and fluffy potatoey goodness on the inside..... Jonny eats his with mayonnaise.....he's a strange kid!
I miss all our evenings chilling out on the sofas and snuggled up. To my absolute wonder, the idol that is David Attenborough has done a new series, Africa, so we settled down with mugs of tea to enjoy some life in the wild!
Saturday morning = park run. For those of you that don't know, it's a free 5k event every weekend with locations all over the country. It's a great thing to do and a perfect reason to leave your warm bed early on a wintery morning.
Lucky for me, my wonderful friend had offered to cook a fried breakfast for us to enjoy on the weekend. I was relegated to egg duty!! I nice I still know my place in the house!!
Jonny would like you all to love and appreciate his new bike. It's a fixed gear thingy and looks pretty swell to me!! Apparently only having one gear makes you pretty cool....
I miss my J-Dizzle lots, and am looking forward to being back in the UK next year so we can continue all our mischief together x x x
