How well do you know your friends?


I've known one of my closest friends Dona since we were 14, she was new at school and in the same class for Biology, I waved her over to sit next to me and you know what the first thing I said to her was?....wait for it... 'do you like rats?'

bam. friends for life. There aint no closer bond then that of a friendship bonded over a good rat conversation. I think she replied that she liked them OK but was so thrown by the question that all ice was broken. Try it as an opener sometime, I dare you.


^^ look at how little Wilf is in this picture! ^^

Flowers of Holland are running a fun Facebook app to see how much you know about your best friends. If you can guess the type of flower they like and guess right you could be in with a chance to win a bouquet of those flowers. 

As part of this I am taking part in a challenge to guess the answers to the following questions. Actually when I looked at these questions I realised I maybe need to get to know my friend a bit better, I was quite stumped so I'm going in with some complete guesses!

What is your best friend's favourite cafe?

We both live in Bristol so I'm going to say..The Social on Stokes Croft, although this might be that it's a just where we have met since I became a mum and needed a space that was child friendly without being a soft play (and served wine!)

What’s your best friend’s favourite place to shop?

If we are going high street i'd say Zara, well made, clean simple tailoring. Otherwise I'll go with vintage (which is probably a bit of a cop out)

What’s your best friend's favourite city?

Well this is tricky I'm going with Berlin but if it is UK based then I'm sticking with the wonderful city of Bristol we both reside in :)

What’s your best friend’s favourite movie?

The last movie we watched together at the movies was Sylvia..I am a big Sylvia Plath fan and I was grateful to have a friend who would sit through it with me! As for her favourite I'm going to say something artsy and possibly involving subtitles..

What’s your best friend’s favourite flower? 

On the app I choose freesias..I hope that's right!

What’s my best friend’s favourite fragrance?

Something by Chanel..

If anything this exercise has made me realise we need to meet up more! 

As part of this challenge I am nominating two other bloggers to take part and test their knowledge of their bestie!

The blogs I am nominating are:

West London Living and Side Street Style

If you fancy playing along why not leave the link to your post in the comment below? I'd love to check it out and hear more about your friendships!

Jess@AlongCameCherry said...

Haha do you like rats, brilliant! It's so nice to have friends that you've known for so long, I'm still really good friends with people I went to secondary school with and it's nice to have so much history. I met Matt at school when I was 13 too so there is a big group of us, it can be rather amusing when you realise you've actually been out with and snogged most of them! And Wilf was so tiny! x

Bek B said...

Ahhh...this is lovely, know so much about each other. Certainly a great icebreaker-rats! ha ha!

Kirsty Hornblow said...

I have a very dear friend from school and it is quite scary to think how long we have actually known each other! I'm not sure I know all the answers to these questions for her though!

Kara said...

I have moved away from where I grew up and my friends are now dotted around the country and even abroad. It is very rare we catch up these days

Samantha Atherton said...

I like the Lemon ones & my little girl likes the Fluro Pink.
and I think It's perfectly acceptable to match your 2 year old, My little girl (2.5years) has a habbit of picking out outfits that are as similar as possible to what I'm wearing that day. We might look a bit silly but she's happy and that's all that matters to me. xx
