So, last weekend me and my Uni friends met up, but this time it wasn’t any old meet up, it was our 10 year friendaversary meet up!
Let’s take it back to the start
In 2009 I did my first year of university at the University of East London (UEL).
Whilst studying for my degree in Early Chiodhood studies (ECS) at the Stratford Campus I was introduced, at the beginning of a morning lecture, to Kirsty & Tarana and as they say, the rest is history!
And we’ve been friends ever since!
I only studied at UEL for a year before returning to my hometown to complete my studies, but we always stayed in contact and have met up at least every few of months, in London.
So, that’s the background, let’s see how we celebrate 10 years of friendship.
As I said, I went down to London last weekend to meet the girls and we had a fun day planned.
Meeting at Stratford, we headed to Leciester Square for lunch.
We always had a tradition of getting the pizza hut buffet after some of our lectures during the Uni year and so we thought this was the perfect tradition to start the day with.
It was really good!!
I havn’t had the buffet in ages 🍕
Once we had eaten and had a catch up we headed to the main event, Matilda The Musical!!!
We wanted to do something we had done together before, as it’s a special occasion, and we all love musicals so we chose this one as it’s a brilliant story (A children’s one, very apt for ECS graduates) and none of us have seen it before either.
The musical is AMAZING!! The actors were fantastic, really talented and very funny. How those children get up on that stage and perform like that is beyond me but it is aweosme to watch.
The music ans songs by Tim Minchin are brilliant too. You’ll be singing them for days, trust me!
If you are a fan of the book or the classic film (as I am) then I would 100% recommend this to you!! It won’t disappoint.
It was getting late once we had made it out of the theatre so we said our goodbyes and headed home.
It was a really fun day out and a great way to celebrate two of the loveliest people I know.
Even though I only went to UEL for a year I will always be glad that I did. It was a great experience in halls and I met some lovely people, including these two, so I will always be grateful for that.
I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of the Summer holidays!
Until next time,
