    I'm so sorry to hear that your mum wasn't here to see how fabulous you were

    I know it sounds a bit silly but I just think even when DD is 50, if she's in the paper or something similar I will be at the newsagent at 6am waiting to get a copy to frame! Haha...oh well, I am thankful that I have a wonderful MIL who bought several copies of all of them

    The irony is they are all addicted to Facebook! The social network. What a joke. I call it the anti-social network as I believe people spend so much time social networking online they have little energy for social interaction in real life. Not everyone but a lot. I know my sister for example pretty much only calls me because I'm not on Facebook so I can't keep up with her news. Instead we have a 45 minute phone call every week. I know what I prefer.

    DP has friends who regularly say "I don't hear much from you these days" or has people whinging in Facebook that no one makes an effort to call or text him anymore. Why would anyone need to if people live their every waking moment through Facebook.

    You pretty much sum up my thinking.

    Gosh! I'm so sorry this happened to you. I hope you have some other family around who support you at bit, that's a hard thing to go through . Hugs

    I'm trying to work harder at making new friends and I'm gearing myself up for some rejection along the way. I'm a pretty strong personality and some people just don't like the way I am but I'm too old to change.

    I wouldn't worry too much about having 3 months pass before ringing another mum - I work 4 days a week so Monday is my day for getting jobs done and meeting up with friends. Between the kids getting sick and appointments it can take me months to arrange meet ups but most of my friends are far too busy to wonder where I've been or why I haven't been in touch.

    To any lonely ladies I always have time for more friends online even if I struggle to make time IRL.

    Yes, I've had this my whole life. I think it's because i'm a bit weird though, mainly my sense of humour, I'm also a bit socially awkward. Luckily I've got 3 best friends who are also very weird, but 2 of them live in another state. I've often tried to make new friends here but people I meet are either not weird enough or too weird lol I need someone in the middle

    Aww, thank you. She'd have bought the paper I think Going on 5 years and I still miss her every day

    I'd be the same if it was my DD! She was in a magazine once, I bought that ASAP! And in the local paper, it's still on the fridge
