• Christmas and friends

    Happy Wednesday my darlings! I am beyond excited to have my studies completed and resume the tbymallano, it’s been ages. I’ve missed you all so much, can’t wait to see (read) what have you been up to.

    I would like to introduce you to special guest today on the blog, my dear friend Rose. I believe I’ve talked before on the blog how much I treasure friendship; I’ve been living away from my family at the age of 14 and my friends feel as a second family. Although enough about me, let’s talk Rose. Do you have a person in your life who is always there when you need them, talk to when you need advice, who cheers you up even on the dreariest day? If not, you need to, that’s the one thing you must to do right in your life.

    Rose’s nickname is sunshine, you’ll hear her laughing, always happy voice no matter where you are in our laboratory. To learn more about her story head over to her youtube where she talks about differences in Kenyan and German culture or her blog. Rose narrates the most amazing stories and I believe (hope) will be a frequent visitor of this blog.

    I find challenging to gift the dearest ones in your life, no gift is special enough to express your gratitude. I wanted something special and #giftdifferent for her this time. I went to the Desigual online shop and chose two same knitted cardigans from their Desigual Chrismas Collection, to remind us of the times we spend together in the cold German weather thinking about home. When life grows us apart, the cardigan and those memories will bring warmth to our hearts.

      This blog post is SO lovely; you can absolutely feel your friendship through the images 🙂 Gifting Desigual is a brilliant idea; we’re always in need of cosy scarves! I had no idea you’d been living away from your family since the age of 14 by the way, I can appreciate how important strong friendships must have been to you over that time! Have a wonderful Christmas 🙂

      Well, I don’t know we’re my message of yesterday has gone? Still, it is soo lovely to have you back. I have missed you more than you will ever know.
      I’m very happy to read that your exams are over. When do you know how well you have done?
      Your friend, Rose looks a happy, smiley young woman. Although I am blessed with having many friends, there are two whom are very special. In touch with every day. They make sure I am well, and get me organized. But that is what women excell in doing.
      Love, hugs and kisses, Jo

        and I was wondering where is my Jo! I was ready to send you a personal email and ask if everything is alright. Hope you’ve recovered completely Jo! I did very well at my exam Jo although one of the professors gave me such a hard time (I cried like a baby afterwards). Rose is a very special person, you would love her if you’d know her in person. Love, hugs and kisses back

          Oh, my dear Tatjana. How horrible that your professor made you cry. I would have had words with him, or her, and given you a big hug and tell you everything will be fine.
          I’m much recovered, thank you. My Christmas tree is decorated; with little lights, too. And looks rather pretty.
          I see there’s another post to look at. How exciting! xxx
