This post is written for the very important blog hop hosted over on the Typecast Blog by Nickie, CLIC Sargent wants parents and bloggers to get involved with their Yummy Mummy week which is being held from 10th to 18th March 2012 and Nickie is offering writing prompts for bloggers to join in and raise awareness!
When was the last time you got together with a group of friends?
The first thing I thought when I read the prompt was, ‘I can’t remember’, I mean I am a full time working mother of two under 4s – when do I get chance to get together with friends?! But then I thought about it a bit more and realised that it was more recent than I think. It may not be a massive group, sometimes it is only two (well with me and hubby that makes it a group – right?!).
So when was the last time? Well last week at work I was with a group of friends, I don’t go to work to socialise, but after working somewhere for over six years, some of my colleagues have become friends, so last week I had lunch with friends, coffee with friends and on more than one occasion we put the world to rights too!
There is a couple we know, like, well love really! It has been a couple of weeks but we had them round for dinner (takeaway counts) and it was fab! We don’t get to see them as much as we would like, but thats life; work, family and other stuff gets in the way, having two little ones means that evenings are difficult for us to get out too, and they often have to come to us but when we get together it is great!
The only time hubby and I have had all our friends together in the same room, at the same time was five years ago, it was a party, well a celebration, a very important day that we were thrilled to share with all, it was our wedding day! I loved having everyone together on a happy occasion, although I couldn’t do it every week!
But my best friend of all is the other half! We laugh, joke, play and just be together, and although it isn’t a group – I love it!
