The Inside Soap Awards

It's so great to see people you love doing so well and being successful in life right? Well earlier this week I had a big reason to smile as one of my friends scooped BEST ACTRESS at the inside soap awards 2013! Jacqueline (better known to you as Lauren Branning from Eastenders) and I met at performing arts college where we instantly became the best of friends. I feel so lucky to have watched her journey from way back before she was on our TV screens and I really couldn't be happier for her and I am so pleased that her talent has been noticed with such a deserving award, knocking off some very tough competition! I still remember the phone call when she told me she had got the part of Lauren and from that moment I knew amazing things were coming her way.

Watching my friends go off and take on the world is sometimes hard for me because I wish I could be doing the same thing. Life with such a debilitating illness gets frustrating in that respect. But when I see my friends excelling I always feel so happy for them. They are putting their energy into something they are passionate about whether it's on a small or a big scale and as a friend that is something I am always very happy to see!


Here is my girl with her lovely big shiny award, aww I'm welling up just looking at it! Doesn't she look beautiful! In my opinion she should have won sexiest female too, but I might be a bit biased...

Lots of Love

  3. Congrats to your beautiful friend. I don't think we get these soaps here in the US, but I seem to remember Coronation Street from when I lived in London in 1960 ~ could that be so? It is really terrible that this disease hit you now when you are so young. I never forget to be grateful that I got my type 1 diabetes as an adult onset version of juvenile diabetes which usually hits children and young adults. I was 49 so I had a full life without all the stuff I now have to do to take care of myself. I hope and wish they will find something to help you, to cure you, I really, really do. Sending hugs from my desert canyon in the US.

  7. Congrats to your friend! And you're such a lovely, supportive friend! It isn't always easy seeing people move forward when it feels like we're stationary. We're moving forward in different ways, of course :)

    1. It can be tough, just because we want to be on the road with them, not watching from afar, but we are on a whole different journey so we shouldn't really compare :)
