Friends. My relationship with 'Friends' looking back over the years has been quite emotional.
When I moved to somerset in '85 I worked very unsociable hours so the opportunity to form friendships was limited. I had one close friend who I worked with and I am sad to say have had no contact with him now for many years. I try as much as I can now regardless of the distance to keep in touch with friends who have moved away, with true friends distance is not an issue, I have that with Jen and Steve.
I made my first close friendship not long after my son was born, we were friends for 14 years until a massive fallout out a year before she died. To this day I regret never having made up with her. Although things would have never been how they were at least we would have been on speaking terms. Maybe that's my guilt...I don't know.
However....over the past couple of years I have circulated, and have a close group of friends who have brought lots to my life and I hope I have to theirs.They are all individuals with their own unique qualities, some nearly as bonkers as I am.
I wouldn't and couldn't be without any off them.
Flatulence. Oh dear! Me? Never....
Fat. The dreaded F-word!!! My greatest fear, and as I am learning to accept a totally unfounded fear. I have never been overweight, and probably never will be. All in my head and not on my hips.
False. I cannot abide false people. If you do not like me please do not interact with me!! I feel a bit of a hypocrite hear because I have been guilty of trying to like someone or being their 'friend' as it made other relationships easier. never again, I am what you see, like it or lump it.
Fugly. Is that actually a real word? Love it, but will leave that for a later letter.
Flirt. I am unashamedly one of the biggest flirts you will ever meet.
That's it for the F's. i can think of a lot more but I am pushed for time this evening, I'm off for a night of fun and frivolity. Ooh, theres another two.
