Thanks a lot to all you great people who replied.
You're all right in what you say but I must admit that it's sad to know that your friends just come and go in your life like that
Kate, just because you have a baby doesn't mean you're not entitled to have fun according to your gf's. In fact I would've thought you'd have more of a need to have some you time with the girls, as much as you love bubby you need a break sometimes. I'm amazed they can't see it that way. If I'm ever up your way I'll make sure to say hi
I agree with you Kim, I too am envious when I see women with groups of friends and they all go out and have a good time without the boys....funny, I only seem to have 'girlfriends' when they have tupperware parties, don't you just HATE that? You only get invited over by someone you barely knew because they want you to buy something. That used to happen to me a lot when I was with the ex. He was in the army and I always used to get invited to parties like that, he always used to say I should go and make some friends and get to know people...so I did. I don't have any of those friends anymore, but I do have a lot of useless Tupperware in the cupboard
Ally, atleast when you get TTOTM you'll have the whole house to yourself
Amy, my best friend also fell pregnant when she was 15 (I didn't know her then however, only met her when both she and I were at uni) She has a 6 year old daughter and when she was in Sydney we'd go out and take Ebony with us (when she wasn't at school of course). It was fun because I don't know a lot of people with kids so it was good to go out because my friend would always know all the fun places to go and you saw the world from a kids perspective. I think it's a shame that people lose contact with their friends just because thier circumstances change, life is always changing but what makes it worthwhile is surrounding yourself with the people that have been through it all with you.
I used to have a really close best friend when I was in primary school, her name was Stefanie. She and I were both major Mariah Carey fans (still am, but don't hold that against me
) I had to move away when we were to start high school and my mother (who was incredibly overprotective to the point of opression) forbade me to ever see or call Stefanie again because she thought there was no need to continue a friendship if we weren't in the same area (she didn't want to drive me out to Stef's place and things of that nature) Stef was the nicest girl, good family, we never got into trouble and she was a good influence on me but mum put a bar on the phone so I couldn't call her or any of my school friends.....Years later when I got access to the net, I tried searching for her because I had heard she had moved back to country Victoria where she was orignally from, but to no avail I couldn't find her details after countless phone calls to all the families with her last name....
I just realised how depressing that story was
I guess life has always got something planned for you.....
I'm thinking of joining an all female gym (don't know about Fernwood, they're pricey....) Anyone been? Maybe go once a week to socialise and see how I go.
