Making New Friends In Adulthood

One person can change the way you feel!

Just over a year ago I saw a picture on Instagram of a landmark of where I live so I liked the picture and took a look at the persons profile. She was also a mum of all boys and a blogger. I then went back to the picture and left a comment asking if she lived where i did. 

From that point we spoke on and off by DM on Instagram and then on the 30th of October 2015 we meet up and took all the boys to a near by park. At this point we realised how close we lived to one another and that our boys went to the same nursery, what a small world....

From that day we have been a little bit inseparable. Our friendship was so unexpected for me and her too but i think we have saved each other from going insane. haha. 

I never thought i was going to find a friend that i could open up to like i do with Hannah, We sit and laugh and moan about our men, we obviously talk about the blogging world, (which hannah has helped me so much with) She has been there for me through thick and thin when i have needed her, weather that is accompanying me to appointments or to check that i locked the front door :)  I just feel so at ease with her, i never thought that would happen again especially with a girl.

I have always been the person that used to be known as the girl that got on better with boys more then girls. Which was difficult for my senior school years when i went to an all girls school. I had the odd girl friend but only a handful, what i think goes back to losing me childhood friend Vicky to cancer at just 9 years old. I just didn't want anyone to take my best friends place even though she was no longer with us. Every time i got close to someone i cut them off..... Looking back now i don't really know why.

My Friendship with Hannah has felt different from day one, I don't know why or what it is but it just is.  

I saw a friendship necklace in Next on one of our many shopping trips, I automatically picked up two and knew i wanted to get us one each to match. This was a big deal for me, i have never had a friendship necklace with anyone else apart from Vicky. I still have my half of the forever friend heart pendant she bought me. I just wanted to show Hannah how much I appreciate her and our friendship.

Hannah has been the one person that has come into my life that has changed how i feel. My friendship with her has bought me out of my shell making it easier for me to approach other people and to gain more friendships. 

Unfortunately Hannah is moving in just a few days and not just around the corner. She's moving to Norfolk which is over 140 miles away and will be over a 2 hour drive to see her. Of corse i am so happy for her and the boys having a nice fresh start, a new amazing house and being in a little village by family. However it has hit me hard, i feel i am losing a friend again. I know this isn't going to happen and myself and hannah will keep in contact and try and meet up as much as possible.

I just wanted to write a post about my friendship with Hannah for many reasons, but mostly to share the message that you are never to old to make new friends, there is always a space in your life for a new person and most importantly to tell Hannah how much she and her boys mean to me.

Thanks for reading 
With Love
