If I say something, then I'll probably sing it, and if I'm not doing either of those, them I'm usually head thrown back and cackling like a hyena. Think Ed from The Lion King and that is kinda like me. Last week, I was at a ball with work and I literally had one of the best nights of my life. I was genuinely having the best time, and after reflecting on this, I realised it was down to the people I was sharing the night with.

When I relocated for my job in June last year, it was a total gamble. I knew it was the right thing for me to do, but it was still a gamble. Not only are you starting a new job, but you have the whole saga of being 'the new person' again and not knowing anyone at all. It can be really daunting, even for a confident person like myself, but it is something we all have to go through. I never thought that in a short space of time I'd meet colleagues who would become some of the greatest friends I've ever had. It didn't take them long to realise the type of person that I was - bubbly, dramatic, a total worrier, 100% naive to everything, and someone who just wants to laugh. I feel so fortunate to have found friends who know me so well in such a short space of time.

On the flip side of new friends, I also have old friends who will always be by my side - the type of friends you genuinely can't imagine not ever knowing, because they've made such an impact on your life in the time they've been there, the type of friends who you can sit and do nothing with, or cry to, or laugh with at reruns of You've Been Framed. For Christmas, I came to the conclusion that my friends know me ridiculously well - nearly every present was Disney or something that they knew would make me squeal like a child. It's not the present itself that makes you so happy - it's the fact that they knew it would make you happy.

I am so lucky.
