my mum and I have had a weekly shopping & lunch day on friday's since i was pregnant with DD who will be 4 this year.
Every friday we meet for lunch, then get the few bits n pieces we need at big w and go to the banks and aussie post. every single freaking friday for 4 years!!
we also used to go the pub for sunday night tea with mum, dad, dh, dd, ds and myself. i have 3 other sisters, 2 of which also live vlose by, but they never came.
As soon as y sister moved back down for QLD with her new DF, the sunday night pub meals just stopped. we never got no reason why, just that they didnt want to go no more. fair enough. sunday nights are now my mum, my dad, and my sis from qld and her DF's family bbq night together.
that hurt abit, but i got over it, its just tea!!
fast forward to JUST NOW...........
I call my mum, likei do every fridya morning, to see how we are going time wise (washing house work etc) and arrange a time to meet up. i tell her i can go earlier as im not going to playgroup as DS has a stuffy nose.
"oh, im just gonna go with x (my sister from qld)from now on"
and then she said see ya and hung up.
and i am now feelin like a complete id iot.
I really look forward to our friday catch ups, the only one we have now the sunday night ones have also been replaced.
i guess i shouldnt be surprised, since she always manages to go to 2 of my sisters houses nearly every day, nut my younger sister and i struggle to get her to our houses once a season.
