Will I be Fat and 40

Sunday, 18 October 2009


Just a little post this time about friends.

Now because I've had my op I'm going to be off my feet for some time yesterday i asked Kerry (picklesmum on rav and on mumsonline) to come and sit with me for a bit as I'd had a General A on Friday and Dave had gone to football taking Alex with him (i told him to still go as that way i wouldn't have to listen to my girls argue all day lol).

Kerry came round and sat with me, well i say sat, in reality she didn't sit that much as she washed up, wiped my cooker top and my grill pan, made me lots of cups of tea and a much appreciated fish finger sandwich. However we did manage to sit and knit a few rows/rounds and had a jolly good chat.

Then there was Olivia.
Now for those of you who don't know me that well I'm lactose intolerant and therefore drink lactofree milk in my tea and on my cereals. So me being so organised would have lots in ready since they don't' sell it in the corner shop and i can no longer "nip" to tesco or asda to get some. Well yes your right, I'm not organised, never will be that organised as it's just not me lol. Now Olivia had already text me asking if i needed anything so i asked her to get me some senokot liquid from town (ready to combat a side effect of one of my painkillers). Luckily for me (but unlucky for her DS1) Olivia has lactofree milk at home too so i text and with in 10 min's she was round with a carton for me so i could again enjoy lots of cups of tea. She'd also offered to come and pick me up at the hospital if they had kept me in over night bless her when i know her kidlets were a bit stressed.

Then there is Sarah, who has dyed me up some scrummy yarn ready for me to collect on Thursday. It's in her 'Olivia' colour way in a high twist yarn and I'm sooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to squishing it on Thursday.

My MIL also popped round yesterday to make sure i had everything i needed bless her. She's such a lovely person and she's also got a poorly DH at the moment so i wasn't expecting her to pop round at all. My Mum also came to pick Georgie up and take her to her riding lesson for me and has offered to do the same for me next week and take me for my plaster appointment in 2 weeks time.

What I'm trying to say is that i didn't realise just how many friends i had until Friday/Saturday. I've had so many offers of help and texts asking how i am and what can they do for me that it's floored me a bit. Yesterday my phone went off that many times with text message that i had to change the alert to a click because i never got to finish a sentence with Kerry lol.

So my main reason for this post today is to say

When I became ill, that is when I found out who my true friends were. I think it is only when you have need that you see the true depths of the people in your life. (in both a positive and negative way). It is a great way of sorting the wheat from the chaff.
