I thought weekend accountability fitted better at the organising blog - come join in!
Well, I don't know why this is but I'm usually the one to initiate friend dates.
Oh my gosh, I wonder if that makes me seem desperate?
But recently not one but TWO friends asked me out.
1. Haven't seen this friend since my kids' party and "properly" since May when her family came over to my house for lunch. She sent me an email and suggested an early supper straight after work.
Sounds PERFECT and I actually need to set it up because I can't wait. Let's face it - socialising with kids running around is not exactly real connection time :)
2. A second, new friend sent me an email a few weeks back inviting the whole family over for a braai (barbeque for the non-South Africans).
I just sensed that this was a step of courage for her so when I replied, I said, "thanks for being so brave" and she loved that I noticed that.
So we'll all be having a lovely lunch next weekend and we can't wait (we are not people who braai so it's such a treat for us, both food and company).
Over to you...
Are you mostly the initiator or the recipient of invites?
When was the last time you acted with courage and asked someone out?
And now, I'm off to finish preparing supper for these friends!
