    Default Friend going through rough patch...

    My friend has a 16mo DD and has just had her relationship break up (circumstances still hazy, we believe her partner had started to drink heavily and want to knock around with his mates again....)

    She lives interstate - I really want to do something for her but am stuck on what... She is such a private person she's not even really talking to her mum about what's going on.... I'm worried she will burn out as she's still carrying on as all is the same, full time uni and looking after her girl.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone been through something similar? She's beautiful and I love her and I just want her to know that we are thinking of her......

    Thanks all x

    What sort of thing were you thinking?


    Something practical
    Something like a few Coles/Myer's cards so she can get groceries or a new clothes for her or the kids.
    Or pay for a cleaner for a few weeks.

    Or a nice bunch of flowers and a sweet card.

    I think the best thing you can do is keep in touch with her and a listening ear. Let her cry on your shoulder or laugh about goofy things whatever she feels like.

    Agreed, a bunch of flowers delivered to her door would be a lovely, i know it'd brighten my day!

    Or a voucher from a day spa in her area for a massage or just a $ value so she can choose her own. Probably be the same price as a nice bunch of flowers.

    But most importantly letting her know you are there for her

    What about a box set of DVDs of a show you know she loves? Something to take her mind off things? Some choccies and really girlie DVDs, that's what I'd send.

    Thank for all of your suggestions so far! I would love to send her flowers so maybe that's what I'll do.... The massage voucher is also a good idea! I'm not sure what shows she's into but that's a great idea as well
