Today I just want to say a massive thank you to all my friends. Some I have known for a few months, others years and one I have known since the day I was born. You are all wonderful and I am so thankful to have you all as my friends.
Thank you for all the advice, all the times spent with the kids, the shared recipes, the tins of chick peas, the cups of tea, even the (currently very few) evenings out. All your different perspectives are wonderful and I love listening to and sharing stories of life with you all.
It is funny that as a child I really did not like to talk to people I didn’t know (even talking to the ones I did know was sometimes hard). But I have taught myself that it is easy to make a friend, to knock on a neighbours door, to start a conversation with another mum in your area, to reply to a post on a social media site, to just make that first move, you never know.
Where did you meet your best friend? What is the strangest way you made a friend? Why don’t you see if you can make a new friend in this next week?
