Sometimes I think it is such a shame when life gets in the way and we spend a long time between seeing people. I always say “Yes, let’s catch up for coffee!” then six months later I realise I still haven’t set the time! I am terrible for it. The thing is, quite often I am happy in my own company. Either than or I struggle with persistent interaction. I feel claustraphobic when I set too many plans.
Anyway, this week I was fortunate enough to have two of those meetings that I have procrastinated forever and a day. One being with my friend Aleesha (Well, Renee was there too but Renee and I see each other on any given oppurtunity… She is brilliant at making sure that time happens! ) and the other being with my brother. Daniel and I are close but we seldom spend any time alone together so we were able to sit and have a good chinwag about things.
Now these have taken the better part of 6-7 months to come around. That is pretty standard for me.
It’s funny how life dictates these things and how quickly time goes by.
The great thing about Leesh and Dan is that no matter how long it takes, we are still able to sit and chat like there was no time in between.
I think the best kinds of friendships are the ones that can happily resume after months of slackness. Then you get together and laugh as much as you did the months before.
All I can say is I don’t know how those snooty socialites do it. That is their life.
Thank god for social media or I would be stuffed!
