I spoke to a friend today on Skype for the first time in months. We’ve been good friends since we were teens and although we live far apart (we both live in France now, strangely enough, she’s in the north and I’m south) and don’t speak as often as we’d like, a text here and there, every time we talk we fall back into our friendship like we hadn’t had the time apart. We talk to each other like it was yesterday. Its so refreshing that we can do that, she really is so special to me, we’ve shared happy and tough times together so its natural that we fall back into our old familiar ways of talking to each other. Anyway, when we were chatting, it was lovely, she doesn’t have Facebook or Twitter or anything like that so for the first time in a long time, I was genuinely excited and happy to hear everything she had been up to for the past few months. That doesn’t happen often, does it? She has a new baby who I hadn’t seen, he’s adorable, her other 2 kids were chatting so much more than before, so grown up. I hadn’t seen pictures of them, heard stories, nothing. Everything she was saying was news. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love her to get Facebook so I could see her more often BUT there was something wonderful about chatting and not know what was coming next!
Do you have any friends you don’t keep in contact with that often who fall into place like they hadn’t been gone? Do you keep in contact daily/weekly/monthly with your close friends and like to know what’s going on in their lives?
P.S. Love ya lady! (even though I know you won’t read this!!)
