We've reached a turning point.
My love for speaking on the phone.
The key to a content life.
I'm writing this because I know how easy it is to judge and potentially, condemn others based on their actions on people you know and care about. That pack mentality to deride someone because they've hurt another/others. To form an opinion based on well, another's opinion and possibly not on fact because everything in life is so utterly subjective.

Let me kick off by writing, I'm that girl who literally wants to be friends with everyone.
Let me kick off by stating that I'm so freakin' lucky to have two handfuls of besties in my life. I really am fortunate to have the most inspiring, lovable mates in my life.
Welcome back people and hey! to all you new bloggers!
Studies have shown that endless hours on social media looking at photos of friends getting together having fun- (the ones that are mostly shared as those of us simply sat around bored rarely make the cut)- can actually leave you feeling down and depressed....

I can't live without the strong female friendships in my life.
I've always been a bit of a girl's girl-I'm still friends with many of my oldest girlfriends from school, sixth form and university then from working in the film industry; I love how empowering good female friends can be! I'd be lost without them!
Anyone who knows me, understands how much I love hanging out with my family. In fact nothing, NOTHING makes me happier than when we're altogether, eating, laughing, eating, shouting (we don't do talking, we're Greek) and did I mention eating?! My family are utter happy-makers and that's the 'truth Ruth'!
Aw, soft focus pictures of our boys together kissing and cuddling, Oliver our firstborn and heir looking lovingly at his younger brother, our darling baby Alexander. Bless. Fast forward a year. Oliver realises his brother is sticking around for more than just the photo opp (and he's loud, confident and wants to play with his toys). Like forevs. The adoration is still there, sure it is. But from Alexander to his older brother. A spends his days gazing at Big Bro brimming with love and admiration.
Argh, friendship divorce..
Paying homage to my super Mother-in-Law.
