The actual truth is, that I've actually always been proud of my little sis. She has always been talented and clever and funny. Head girl of not one but BOTH of our schools, voice of an angel, fabulous artist, zillions of A stars, Oxbridge educated, amazing career in Advertising…. Yadda yadda yadda. But what I love about her is her fabulous optimism. She always cheers me up when I'm down. She always looks on the bright side of things. Her glass is definitely half full. To her, the sun is always going to come out tomorrow.
Today is her birthday. I am seeing her tonight to give her a fabulous present. However, it strikes me that having such a brilliant little sister is the best present Mum and Dad could have given me. She turned out to be far more fun than that blasted doll. Having her live so close to me in North London makes me indescribably content. When we badger Izzy to move nearby once she has finished Uni then I'll be truly happy to have both of my dear sisters nearby.
