I am sat here having had no book or TV or F for the evening....
I knew this was coming and wasn't relishing it so I did something I should have done a while back. I facebooked one of my teacher friends (although unlike me, they made it through the course). We hadn't met up since last Christmas even though I work about two mins drive from where she lives.
After work I went and collected her for coffee and we talked and talked.
I didn't have to worry about Little Dog because F had been home all day and started work as I was finishing. I could just sit and revel in the good company. Bliss. Why didn't I do this sooner? Why can it sometimes feel so hard to sacrifice books, TV and laptop for an evening? I didn't stay out late. I didn't drink alcohol. But this was a lovely social occasion.
We talked about education, family, feminism, religion and many other things. We are both opinionated but it doesn't matter because while having opinions, we accept others may differ and move on. We focus on the similarities rather than the differences.
Heres to friendship in all it's forms.
So what do I do tomorrow? Maybe it will be the night to attack the contents of my wardrobe....
