A year in people #78(2) – A

Continued from Part One... We'd started messaging each other while I was away abroad for a year. At first it was just general chit chat about work (we used to work together) and where I'd been, then gradually it got deeper and more personal. He was having relationship issues and I became someone for him... Continue Reading →

A year in people #78(1) – A

"Can I take you on a proper date?" "What do you mean?" "You know, a proper date, where I come and pick you up and take you out for dinner." "Ohhhh. YES! Shall I wear a dress?" He laughed. "You can wear whatever you like." He pulled up outside my friend's house where I was... Continue Reading →

A year in people #67 – Gemma

I came back from a few weeks abroad and Sian had made a new best friend. I vaguely recognised Gemma from BMF sessions but Sian had brought her into the fold. I'm not quite sure whether Gemma had a choice about being in said fold. The first Saturday I was back, I went to BMF... Continue Reading →
