Do you remember your first friends?

I do and I don't I know one of my first friends was mu uncle Tony he was only a couple of months older then me I use to hang out with him a fair bit during school holidays and such when I was pretty young.

I think for many of us our first friends are cousins or siblings, when we have our first sleep over it is often at a relatives house, because it takes a lot for our parents to allow us out of their sight overnight.

When I was young like in primary school and we lived in Flame street I had a lot of sleepovers at my friend Stacey's house she lived 2 houses down from us and we were thick as thieves when we were little that changed when we got to high school, I think because we went to different high schools.

When my girls were little they would often sleep over at my sisters house and their cousins Samantha and Tina were good friends of my girls Kathy-Lee & Natasha this lasted for many years, in fact as teenagers for many years Sam & Natasha spent a lot of time together and in fact they use to look a lot alike.

Now I am an adult I have no friends that are not family, I am ok with that though it is just the way it is, my parents don't have a lot of friends in fact dad has one friend and mum has none but it doesn't bother them. Tim doesn't have any friends he has work mates but he doesn't hang out with them out of work hours.

I think some people have a lot of friends other people have a lot of family who are not just family but friends as well.

You are right. As we grow up and get married our friends go in their way. But in my case i have still contacts with my school friends and my college mates through social media and phones. Will enjoy speaking to them.

I only have contact with one of the friends from school and that is Cathy but we don't see each other very often most we connect via Facebook

My first friend was Jenny. She was my best friend until my mom let her color the LAST 3 PICTURES in my favorite coloring book that I was saving because, well, they were my favorite. Okay, she was still my friend, but it really honked me off. Then she moved to England and became "Jennifer" because that was way more sophisticated. My dad always just called her "Jenbucket." I have no idea why. :)

I like the sound of "Jenbucket"
How dare your mum let her colouring in your last 3 pictures, sometimes mums do not think how their little one will feel about something

As we grow into adulthood friends will come and go. We may only keep in touch with family because they are the ones our lives are centered around.
