What I wouldn’t give for a lunchtime date with Lucy.
I’ve known the awesome, funny, intelligent, amazing, beautiful Lucy for a couple of years now but over the last year we bonded over our monthly catch ups over lunch, talking away our troubles, chatting about mental health, something we are both passionate about, music, food, interesting books we read, musicals, food, holidays, politics, the environment, academia, whatever you can imagine. I’ve learnt a lot from her.
I always felt that Lucy and I could talk about anything and everything openly with no judgement or prejudice and we always, always had a laugh.
Our lunches were our own little monthly therapy sessions.
Lucy would often check up on me, cheer me on and remind me how lucky I am to have such incredible human beings like her for friends.
So thank you my dear, thank you for, well, everything.
