Guest Post by Simone : The Journey of Friendship

posted on: Wednesday, 17 August 2011

the journey of a friendship.
we met via our blogs...and a friendship was born.
i believe i was her first commenter.
children of the same age. a boy and a girl.
i'm the city girl. she's the country girl.

sharing. talking. confiding.
we email. we facebook. and now we even text.
i'm think i've told her things even when i haven't. and vice versa.
she's part of my day even when we aren't in touch, i'm talking to her in my head.

there are things that she thinks she isn't. but she so is.
good things, so many of them. i think she's marvellous.

one of those friends that you know you need in your life.
you're grateful - so grateful - and happy that they are there.
thanks lovely girl.

have a wonderful holiday, hope it's all the things you want it to be.
read-swim-run-eat-rest. breathe.
see you in September xx

Thank you for such a fabulous guest post Simone and for bringing some 'Bottom of the Ironing Basket' love here. I have to admit, I felt more than honoured and touched to read this - thank you from the bottom of my heart (and ironing basket!)...and may I just say? Ditto! Likewise! The same!
