Hello lovelies,

Now a sentimental post is not one I do very often, but I want to do one today. For the past two days I have spent visiting my sister in Birmingham and I have to say I have loved every minute of it. I don't get to see my sister or brother in law that much as they live far away and I just don't get that much time now I have a job (saying that when I didn't have a job I didn't visit them as much as I could have or should have, if you're reading this then I'm sorry). 

But these past few days have been fun, we've had chats, watched tv (mainly eastenders) and laughed a lot. Today we are making home made bread, cakes, gingerbread cookies, shepards pie and sausage casserole. I love it, part of me don't want to leave, but I know I have to as I have work on Monday (half term goes too quick).

Now in the past my sister and I fought like cat and dog (like most sisters I suppose). However, now we have both grown up we seem to have a stronger bond. For starters she says "I love you" without cringing now and hugs me, which was very rare when we were growing up. We don't have fist fights like we used, which resulted in me crying my eyes out to a point where I felt like being sick and couldn't breathe. I love my sister and I'm not ashamed to say it, I would do anything for her. If anyone hurt her I would hurt them ten times worse. I hate seeing her cry and I hate feeling useless when she cries. I love our heart to heart chats and when we act silly together (feel sorry for my brother in law when that happens). 

My sister is so supportive of things I do and she gives amazing advice on everything from clothes, make up, cooking to boys. I don't know what I would do without her. When she went to uni I cried my eyes out, when she graduated uni I cried my eyes out watching the ceremony, when she got married I cried my eyes out in front of everyone when I was reading a poem. No doubt when I go home on Sunday I will be crying my eyes out, but like Marilyn Monroe said "sisters make the best friends in the world." And to me that's true, my sister may not see me as her best friend and that's ok. But she is my best friend, she was there for me from the start and she will be there for me at the end and I love her for everything she has done for me and taught me over the 28 years of my life.

Lou if you're reading this you're probably thinking soppy cow, and you're right I am, but I don't tell you enough just how much you have influenced my life, yes I have liked most things you've liked, but that's only because I have wanted to be like you. I wanted to match your grades in school and at uni, I know it sounds silly, but to me you are a great role model and you are who I looked up to when we were growing up. I don't to tell you that enough just like I don't tell you I love you as much as I should.

 To all you girls and boys who have sister or brothers or both, tell them as much as you can how much you love them, because one day you might not be able to. For now I am lucky I still have mine, but I know one day I won't have her, that day nearly happened a few years ago when we fell out and didn't talk to each other for months. I was so upset I kept saying to my mum I've lost my sister and I don't know what to do. But anyways I'm going to cry if I carry on.

Have any of you felt like your siblings are your best friend?
