Mini-Golf and Monsters

Don't you just love sarky and somewhat pretentious titles which you assume will have nothing to do with the actual content of the post? Well I do.

However that particular title is relevant; it is the brief description of my saviour.

You can't have failed to notice that I've been drowning in my own self-pity for a fair while now; I write to you today with my spirits somewhat lifted.

On Thursday my best friend in the entire world and her boyfriend got me round to their house and we watched 'Monster House' - which believe it or not I found funny. They taught me how to cook and her boyfriend who's in a similar state to me talked to me, at length, about how we could help each other. At the end of the evening/early morning I hugged both of them and drove home ever so slightly more cheerful.

The next day however I decided they were humouring me and didn't really like me; I hid in bed until 2pm. Then they called me and invited me to play Mini Golf, which I accepted. It was the best afternoon I've had in a very long time. The game was amazing and we had a real laugh - it was hot and I rolled my sleeves up and we were all comfortable with it.

No-one ever say that girl-friends are just there for shopping

something that it has taken me a very very long time to learn (or to believe) is that people who don't like you just don't call. so if people call it means that on some level you are liked. hard to comprehend when you don't like yourself. takes a leap of faith maybe.

happy easter niki.

wise thoughts Mr T; ta very much.

Hey there!

I LOVE the word "sarky"......I've never heard it before, and will have to find an opportunity to slip it into a conversation today somehow.

Mr.T is sooooo right. People don't call (or visit blogs) if they don't like you.

I hate shopping......but love hanging with my girl-friends. Time with them is likr receiving a bouquet of flowers.

sometimes it takes a particular moment to realise that someone does actually like you for you... as you are, non judgementally, unconditionally... special moments that stay with us for life. None of those moments for me are shopping moments...
I'm so pleased you had a wonderful time... hugs, Katie,x
