House warming, heart warming....

Firstly the good stuff....mainly cause I don't want to appear like a whiney bitch....
We went to my dear friend's house warming last night. Her and her partner have bought a beautiful little two bedroom house just down the road. Now that we don't work together it's hard finding time to catch up. It was so great to see her. Over the 5 years we worked together, I watched her grow from a quiet 16 year old worrying about exams, into the most amazing young woman who, at 21, has just purchased her first home and is planning a trip overseas. I'm so very proud of her, of everything she has accomplished, of the woman she has become.

Now to the whine.....

In these modern days of all the wizz bang gadgets to keep us in touch with each other, why is it that it takes my *cough* best friend almost 5 weeks to send me an email and acknowledge the loss of our last baby??? We have a home phone, 2 mobiles, 3 email addresses a postal address and somehow she couldn't find a way before now to drop a quick line to say "sorry, I'm here for you". I was there for her when she was asking me to, one day, tell her two children all about her because she felt she couldn't go on and was going to top herself, making me feel helpless because I was 2000 klms away. I feel like picking up the phone and saying a big fucking "up your arse lady". I want to be self absorbed and scream "what about me???". I want to be nasty and bitchy and guilt free while doing it. Phhtttt to you I say.......

**Just to add a big thank you to my above mentioned friend for attaching a picture of your two beautiful children to the email. I would have send you one of ours.....but they are dead.

I hear ya. Same thing happened to me. Took one of my closest friends 3 weeks to bother ringing up to say anything about the miscarriage. People suck.
