Perfect Blend of Friendship Award Presentation

Many moons ago Trish gave me this little award.


It comes with questions and everything!

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood?
I don't really know how to answer this one. I very rarely get to see my friends from childhood, mainly because (a) there were so few due to sparse population and (b) I moved away. That being said, I have very, very rarely "dropped" a friend with deliberation as it tends to be gegraphically challenging rather than moving on on a friendship level IYKWIM.

I haven't seen my kindy friend since I was about Grade 1, but I often wonder how she is. I occasionally see some of my primary friends and some of my high school friends, but keep caught up on their doings (as no doubt they do of mine) through family. I have a few friends from Uni days, and they came to my wedding - as did friends from my time in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

2. What do you value most about your friends?

I love that each of my friends is unique. Some I love because they are just joyful to be around, some because we have interests in common, some are great at talking, some at listening. What I value most is they all add to my life and enrich it - I would be a poorer person without them.

3. Are your friends your sounding boards?

Hmm. Not really. I tend to be my own counsel, and I would probably turn to V, my sister or my mother if I needed another view.

4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends?

Definitely eating - which is of course mixed in with talking and laughing and drinking.

As I love to cook, this is a great boost for me. As I am on average 800km away from most of my friends, this means I am getting fat.

So now - to pass this along to some of my favourite bloggers (and commenters) - Debbie, Melody, Jen and Elizabeth - because they have all become friends of mine.

So many friends, so little time. Terminal, I am.

REal like, real bodied friends, I can only keep a few. Again, so little time.

Trish said...

If I do this I won't be able to pass it on to you. I think this is the 2nd one you've passed onto me recently and that's where they've stayed. I'll have to get on it.
