Several things have made me think about friends and friendships recently. Finding a big pile of letters from several old friends who I am barely in touch with any more, a thread on a forum I visit regularly, being friend dropped on facebook, and just odd other bits of things too.

I have some lovely friends, who know all about everything with me, some friends who although may not know my deepest and darkest are great to spend time with, and the usual assortment of aquaintance friends too. There is just the odd few people though who friendships seem to have drifted with and it makes me sad that it has happened. People who I once thought my closest friends who I no longer see. I know some friendships are just for a time and not for forever, but there are people who I thought I'd always be close to who are no longer a part of my life and who don't know anything about me any more. I guess the reverse though is that there are people who I never really thought I'd be close to who are now good friends, people who have really been there for me when I needed them and friends I know I can trust with everything. I guess it is just like all relationships, some are a lot more one sided, some are a lot more deep and some just surprise you.

I don't know what I'm trying to say really, beyond the fact that maybe I need to get in touch with a few people.

As an aside Noah is 5 months today, and is it wrong to admit I'm starting to feel the smallest bit broody again?!!!

Not necessarily wrong, but mad perhaps!
