So do u prefer to be with your family coming and going or friends around you day in day out.
Now years ago when the kids were little there was always people coming and going at the house, it took me until i moved about 11 years ago,to realise a lot of the time i was just been used. The amount i spent on food was stupid! it would be lets go to yours a cuppa which would leading to feeding people. then after school which would then result in feeding extra for tea. They used to say to me dunno how you spend so much money on food. I used think in my head i do!!!!!. I should have opened my mouth and said something . it was also birthdays and Halloween, bonfire night i'd spend loads so my kids had a good time. they'd turn up with extra people and say oh you don't mind do you. Me i'd go no its fine, idiot i am should have said YES i do mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .I remember one year we didn't have a Halloween party as i had to have an operation, well you would have thought i have committed murder way one mother was going on, she was ranting and carrying on saying well what am i gonna do now we like getting rid of kids for a few hours and it costs us nothing, so my husband turned round and said well looks like your gonna have to put your hand in your pocket and pay for it! You may ask why didn't you say anything to be honest i was just so used to saying yes to people who asked me but i should have been learning to say No!. When we moved things got better as there was no 1 to come round just the kids mates who used to go home for there tea! . I have a good friend who i met when we moved . we text each other everyday to see how we are and have a grumble .That's how it is for now ,when we lived near her yes we saw her everyday. but she didn't expect things like others did.
So my answer is how it is now just family and when my friend can pop up and c us or when we can get to see her.It would be nice to live near her still who knows in the future.Would i like to have more people in my life nope i am happy as i am.Until next time.
