Me and Tarsh met in April 2001 when we started work on the same ward on the same day as registered nurses.

We were inseparable from that day, continually being mistaken for as twins or sisters. Our looks weren't the only thing that had people asking that question.

Our personalities were put together like a jigsaw and it was blatantly obvious to everyone that if I was somewhere, Luv (Tarsh) wasn't far behind, and vice versa.

My BFF (best friends forever) and I have been through just about every life experience one can have: love, death, life threatening illness, marriage, divorce, long distance, police, holding each other's head over the post alcohol bowl, laughing till we would throw up, being considered a 'surrogate daughter' in each other's family, having sleepovers once a week as we were on our own, then going to work the next morning together...

We used to live in Hamilton and would decide to go to Auckland 'for the day' at 4pm. I remember having a casino visit once with a few wines and then coercing her to go on the rocket bungee. It's something neither of us will do again!

Luv is the first person I call, the one I talk, laugh and cry with the most.

We have done some crazy, crazy things, as only BFFs do, and shared some fab experiences.

We live in different countries now and it does make it hard, and we don't talk as often as we would like, but when we do, laughter flows.
