On the eve of my 30th birthday my darling friend The First Lobster sent me a text message asking what my message to the world was in case I didn’t make it through the night.
Scrolling through my phone where I keep all sorts of inspirational quotes and shizz I stumbled across the below image which seemed fitting. My world without art would be ‘eh’, so I pinged it across to her in case I did in fact cark it.
I thought no more of it until TFL grabbed me by the hand last night and took me to her room to give me my birthday present from her and Chappers. She had been holding on to it since February as she wanted to be there when I opened it. Not only had they bought me a beautiful new Rob Ryan notebook but she had painted me her own interpretation of the picture above.
It brought tears to my eyes as she explained that to her, the earth without me would be ‘eh’ and that she was so glad to be my friend.
Colour me touched……
