This Mother's Day I am nominating...
My best friend, Sarah Lewis.
Why did you nominate Sarah?
I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy Ronny in December 2019, Sarah was at the hospital that evening to see us both. When he was just 12 weeks old we went into a national lockdown, which wasn’t easy for me or for anyone, especially me being a first time mum in the middle of a pandemic while my husband still had to go to work every day. It hasn’t been the maternity I had dreamed of, with no playdates or lunches, but having a true friend at the end of the phone has made it a lot easier. Sarah has been there every day when I've had no one to talk to, listened when I just needed a cry, or when I needed my New Look fix she would talk to me about work and just overall she's been the most amazing friend.
Motherhood is hard, but it’s a lot easier when you have great friends and family. I don’t think Sarah will truly know how much I treasure our friendship (she is honestly one of a kind) and I’m sure if anyone else knows Sarah they will totally agree.
So, thank you Sarah for being you and keeping me sane most days. Not only has she been an incredible friend, when lockdown eased and we could meet we have been out and walked - and we have walked some miles. She’s been my biggest cheerleader, as I have her, and she has helped me lose my baby weight and more. Now we are both 3 and a 1/2 stone lighter.
