She left me smiling. I really wanted to meet her again…

Ruth & Oli

  • We’re both from a small town called Bradford-upon-Avon. And we knew each other vaguely all those years ago.. I had a bit of a crush on him I think, He’s a bit older than me, but I just always thought he was really cool.
  • (Me: I can tell.. He looks it!)
  • …you mean the ‘looking older’ bit, right? haha
  • I live in London and work as a producer,  one day I walked into one of the local libraries when I was location scouting. 
  • Once every week, I volunteer at a community library nearby. And so this one day, she came in and I recognised her… I couldn’t place from where, but I just had the sense that I knew her 
  • …oh i knew straight away, and had a big smile on my face. So we got talking a bit but didn’t meet again for a while.
  • She left me smiling…  I really wanted to see her again and thought about her a lot. But I was out of the country so much – I had already planned my year so tightly without factoring something like this happening.
    There were times I flew back to London and I would have to get straight on a train elsewhere. We’d grab a cup of coffee outside her work or at a train station if we were lucky! Eventually, after returning from a trip to Indonesia, Ruth came to meet me at the airport and we took the sleeper train together to Glasgow, and it just clicked really. We knew there was a connection. That was 7 months ago now.
