Playing catch up with friends

So many of my friends work full time so keeping in contact with them often is not always possible.  But at this time of the year when most work places close for two weeks and some people are home.  Not everyone has a beach house to swan off to!!  I have been catching up with some of these friends over the last few days and plan to make the most of this two week period to continue my catch up with as many of my working friends as is possible.

Today I visited my friend Rose who just happens to be a very passionate gardener so I got my camera out!!  My eldest and her youngest went to school together, but their friendship went by the by when they went to different high schools.  But us mums kept our friendship going, so it was really nice to have a cuppa in her beautiful garden this afternoon.  The thing I like about my friends is that no matter how much time goes by we can just pick up where we left off as if it was just the other day that we last saw each other.  These days everyone is busy but it is important to take the time to keep friendships alive, well that is how I feel anyway.  And I am the sort of person (like my dad was) that enjoys catching up with old friends and acquaintances from all walks of life.

Tomorrow I have a play date with another one of these friends.
This one has the very best sense of humor!!

That's a sure sign of a true friendship, picking up from where you left off even if its 20 years down the line. Gorgeous garden. x

Isn't it lovely when you see someone after a long time and can just continue a conversation like it was interrupted an hour ago ... like Vix said ... it's a sign of true friendship.
