Welcome to the world of Ricky, James and Flynn… or is it James, Flynn and Ricky? Perhaps it’s Flynn, Ricky and James. Any old which way you want to swing it is just fine with us. At the end of the day, we’re an equilateral triangle, a unified trinity, a triple scoop of gelato in the waffle cone of life.
What? You’ve got no idea what we’re on about? Okay, that’s fair. Let us fill you in.
Rewind the clock by 20 years, and you’ll find us aged 11, just starting our journey into the wonderful world of high school. Combining our misfit powers over icy poles at the school canteen, we hatched a plan, albeit a pretty flimsy one. The idea was to keep a shared daily record of our individual adventures, no matter how mundane they might seem at the time. That way, should we every be separated by the cruel world, we would at least be able to maintain a modicum of contact. This was in the days before social media – only just, mind you – and we thought we were doing something pretty unique.
As it happens, billions of people every day now do what we were doing, sharing their everyday worlds with a much wider audience. What does remain unique about our little idea is that we’ve successfully sustained it over the past two decades, through high school, globetrotting, university, loves, losses, careers and (as of recently) even children of our own. We think that’s a pretty astonishing feat, quite frankly, and that’s why we’ve decided to make ourselves an online home.
Here, you can read excerpts from our shared diary. While it now includes the input of an ever-changing roster of guest contributors, we decided to stick with the names of the original trio for the name of this website. At the end of the day, it’s really down to us to keep this project going, so wanted to dedicate it to each other and our ongoing bromance.
