A slower day today as working at home on my own business, still an early one as Sophiecat is just not good at sleeping in! Put her off until about 5.30am!
Had a few things that I needed to get done this morning before I went to meet a friend for coffee, I’ve known this friend for a decade, notwithstanding COVID I’ve not really spoken to her in the last 5-6 years, no reason just we both got busy living.
Anyway, I bumped into her last summer and we said that we’d do coffee in the new year and it’s taken us a couple of months to get it organised. So lovely to catch up and felt like no years had passed since we saw each other. These are my type of friendships where not speaking for ages doesn’t really matter.
Got home and did a bit more work and then headed to the lake for a swim! Now that we are in there summer season, they open during the week as well as the weekend which is great as I find it such a nice way to finish off the work day with a swim, it kind of washes the day away. This was the 1st Wednesday they have opened and it was really quiet, just as I like it. I managed to do 800m mixture of breaststroke and front crawl and felt good.
Got home and had arranged to speak to another friend on WhatsApp, this friend moved away last year so don’t get to see or speak to her so much now but so lovely when we do talk and again feels like no time has passed since the last time.
Over the years friends have come and gone in my life, however, now I feel like a great group of friends who really “get me” and embrace all that I am without question and it feels good, maybe these kind of friendships come with age or just as we develop as people and become more comfortable with who we are, either way I love my friends dearly and won’t know what I’d do without them.
