This weeks Gallery is Togetherness. This immediately made me think of my cousin. I don't have a sister but she made up for it. We spent a lot of time together, I slept many weeks at her house in the school holidays. She was so sisterly..she teased me, played tricks on me, made me cry etc We got into so much trouble together with her parents for what would be these days fairly minor things.   I remember her telling her friends once that I was her mentally disabled sister who had to be sent away to school which was why I was only there in the holidays...nice, thanks E!

We lost touch for a while during our late teens and twenties and she went abroad. Turns out we both got pregnant around the same time and she came back home when our daughters were about 2. So what is it with family, as soon as they met they became the best of friends.

I truly believe that related genes give people a recognisable smell that means they 'relate', some people just smell right.  Do you know what I mean, or is that just me?!

They only get together in the school holidays but as soon as they do it's like they were never apart and they do all the things my cousin and I did.  Like wreck the bathroom carpet, cover the kitchen in flour, the usual stuff!

E and myself used to sit and watch the Donny and Marie show together.  I saw them like this and it all came flooding back to me.  I am so glad to have E back in my life, I guess we will always fall out now and then but she means so much to me, and I am so happy our girls are the same.

 Together, and I suspect, forever.
