I feel fancy when I go to The Ivy in Tunbridge Wells. Such a welcoming place with a Parisian feel. It’s chique and vibrant. An occasional treat. We all deserve treats. I met my new friend Lorna there today. I don’t meet many people as travelling means I’m never anywhere for long enough. It’s always special when I make friends now. A sweet sparky jewel to enjoy and spend time with. It’s so easy when you’re a kid. Wherever you are you’d ask ‘can I make friends with you?’. And boom, you’re friends hanging out together for as long as you can. Now being older, it feels like there are more social constraints. You don’t just go up to someone and start playing with them 🤣There are past traumas and knock backs and a social etiquette which comes from being an adult. Being a kid brings a lightness of spirit. It’s easy, you just start playing with the person you like. In a child’s world there’s down to earth honesty and openness. Things are simpler. There’s no baggage. It’s all positive and in the moment. I want to be able to meet someone for the first time and say ‘I like you, let’s be friends’. It’s a beautiful thing.
