Starting again…..

I know in my last post….quite some time ago now….I said I was going to take this blog in another direction – well, didn’t I do well? I’m afraid I’m just going to start all over again! Well laid plans and all….

So today’s post is “just because”. Just because I’m sitting here in front of the computer aimlessly looking through Facebook pages, wasting time. First day of school holidays and my darling cherubs have actually been really good – so far. There’s still a few hours to go in this day, so I shall have to wait to see if it’s a fluke or not. And then I only have to get through another 13 days before school starts back! I sound keen don’t I?

So what am I going to write about today? Well, I read a post on Muddled Up Mumma’s blog this morning, and it compelled me to send off an email to a dear friend of mine. She wrote about friendships, and how sometimes they are just left to fall by the wayside. It made me think about my darling friend and the fact that she had moved a few hours away with her family, and I had no idea how she was going or where, in fact, she had actually relocated to. So I sat myself in front of my inbox and tapped away giving her a quick catch up on all the kids, hubby and myself. And I am now finding myself refreshing my emails waiting for her reply!

I think over the years I have let some friendships drift, but I think I’m pretty good at re-connecting when the time arises. Just last week, I added a “friend” to Facebook that I had purposely cut off many years ago. She had been one of my closest friends during my final years of high school, and one of those friends that drifted in and out of my life in the years after school finished. We picked up again just after my first marriage broke down, and she moved in with my son and I – not only to help me out, but also to help her out. Anyway, to cut a long story short – living together didn’t quite work out, and eventually I asked her to move out. It didn’t end on good terms, and I begrudged the fact that I was owed money and was never given an explanation or apology.

A month or so ago, I saw this friend had joined Facebook and “added” a handful of my friends to her page. It took me a month of umming and ahhing to decide if I should add her or not, but I came to the conclusion that I’m not a grudge holder, and she looked like she had gotten her “shit” together, so I would add her and see what happened. Much to my relief (nobody wants to be turned down on fb!) she added me and it was like nothing had ever happened! I’m rather proud of myself for just “letting go”……and possibly – growing up!

Anyway, that is it for today. Rather a pointless little write, but therapeutic all the same! I will see if I can keep up the therapy in the days to come…..actually, there’s the subject of my next blog post – therapy. I’ll be back….

  1. So great to hear my post inspired you to take action with your friend. I think we sometimes over complicate the whole business of friendship….Nice to find your blog too! x

    Thanks Mumma! I only found your blog a few days ago…through FB. It sounds like we lead very similar lives! I tried commenting on your Swear Jar post, but Blogspot was stuffing me around! lol x
