I don’t know about where you live, but here in Belgium, we have these things called “Friendship books”. Basically, they were these books that you handed to your friends, that they would have to fill in. All sorts of information really, but some of the classics were “how old are you”, “how tall are you”, “what colour are your eyes”, “what’s your favourite animal”… You know the type of questions: get to know each other on the most basic level. Last week, I came across a post on a Dutch blog that basically did the same thing. I couldn’t resist: this is basically pure nostalgia for me! This is my [blog] Friendship Booklet!
