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??
