Being a Twin {Flashback Friday}

There's is one thing I've always been proud of. Something that makes me happy, makes me feel special and that I think makes me pretty cool.
I am a twin.
I am 4 minutes older than my twin brother.
Yes. Brother. So, no, we are not identical.
Because he is a boy, and I am a girl.
You'll be surprised how many times I am asked that.

Obviously I don't know what it's like to not be a twin, so I have nothing to compare it to. I don't know life without a twin brother. But the fact that we have been together from day one makes me feel even more special.
I always joke that I have known him 9 months longer than anyone else, because we shared a womb.
"Womb mates" I like to cleverly call him.

A few years ago he moved away to Somerset. I'm not going to lie, it broke my heart a little bit and I hate the fact that he doesn't live closer.
I know he is just on the end of the phone, but it's not the same as being near by.

I would say we are close, we used to have the odd argument but never had a big falling out.
Looking back on the past 27 and a half years I have nothing but happy memories with him. Some completely silly that now make us cringe, and some that still make us laugh.
There are songs that we both love, which remind us of certain moments when we were growing up.
There are certain films that we would watch too, which will always bring a smile to our faces.

He really is amazing and I'm so proud that not only is he my brother, but that he is my twin brother. And one of my best friends.
I'm so lucky to have him in my life.

He is coming home on Sunday for a week (squeeeeeel) and I cannot wait.


Remember a flashback can be from any time whether it be yesterday, last week, last month, last year or yesteryear! It can be a flashback of your own, your children, your partner or your friends.

There is no theme this week, or next week.
