Go here for all the details on this challenge. Today's prompt is Friendship.
I have never been one for having a long list of friends. I don't enjoy being the centre of attention and I'm not a great socialiser. But I do have a short list of very good friends.
One of them I met properly just after I had my first child and she was about to have her first child too. Our kids are in their 30s now and we are still the best of friends. We don't see each other as often now but it's the sort of friendship where we just pick up where we left off.
I also keep in touch with people that I worked with. With 3 of them we regularly take it in turn to host a "Ladies Lunch" and others I meet up with in a pub where we'll eat and drink and catch up on our lives.
But I'm also blessed with a big extended family having married into a family where I gained 6 sister-in-laws who I can definitely count as friends.
I'm a person who's very happy in her own company but I'm also lucky to have friends I can count on.
