GratiTuesday: A New Friend

I have a new friend.

I've had lots of friends since I moved to this town nearly 11 years ago, but most of them have come to work and soon go home again.  Since deciding to stay home I meet fewer people, and opportunities for new friendship happen less often.

But while subbing a few months ago I had the chance to meet the mom of a new student in school, and she's really nice.  Since then we've made trips to museum and had play dates after school - and tonight we went out shopping for a special birthday coming up.

It's been a long time since I went out for an evening with a friend, and it was fun.  We ran errands, talked a lot, and had a simple dinner out - that we didn't have to cook!

Having a new friend to hang out with, whose children my kids play well with, is just plain fun.  Who couldn't use a new friend??

  1. It's wonderful to have a friend to share grown-up time. Friendship must be a theme this week.

    1. It's been a long time since I went on a girls' night out! So fun!

  2. Amen sister! Girlfriends are an important part of your support system. So happy that you found a new friend. I have found that friendships are formed over coffee and cake. So if you want to add to your circle, invite some ladies for coffee. ;)

    1. Yes! I love baking and sharing. Great idea!
