|Nick, Alison, me and Dude, January 2019|
|detail of school photograph, Rothwell Juniors, 1977, with Nick on the left|
I saw two quotes which I think sum Nick & I up perfectly. The first is more sentimental...
A good friend knows all your best stories, a Best Friend has lived them with you
The second made me laugh and would have the same effect on him...
I want to be the reason you look down at your phone and smile. Then walk into a pole.
Happy birthday Nick and here's to many more!
