I’ve just watched Miss Frugal make a new friend and it’s made me think how much easier life was as a child.
We only have a small fence between us and the house out the back of us as their house has only just been finished and Miss Frugal noticed a little girl in the garden from her bedroom window. She came downstairs, put her shoes and coat on and then went outside and pretended to be playing a really interesting game with her scooter. The little girl got closer and closer to the fence and after about five minutes she asked Miss Frugal what she was doing, Miss Frugal replied ‘Nothing much, shall I just come and play with you?’ How clever is that?
She’s just come running in now to tell me that her new friend is ‘awesome’ and that they have decided to be best friends.
If only it was that easy as a grown up! I find it quite difficult to make new friends as I am a bit shy really so I am quite jealous of the way children are so relaxed and open minded about making friends.
Does anyone else have difficulties making new friends or is it just me….
