You might remember that Miss Frugal made friend last week with the girl (I’ll call her M) who lives in the house behind ours (here). Even though the house backs on to ours, it’s about a five minue walk to get round the front so since then they have been playing together but each in their own garden if you see what I mean.
Anyway, today M has asked Miss Frugal to go round and play with her and some of her friends, which would be fine but they are playing in the street, not in the house! It’s a really quiet cul de sac with four of the houses not even occupied yet so (after much deliberating) I said she could go. I walked her round there and am now really regretting saying yes.
I have made Mr Frugal go and play on his computer (didn’t take much) in the dining room with the patio doors open so he can hear her if she shouts and I keep nipping upstairs to look out the window and see if I can see her – which I can’t but I still keep trying!
She is probably less than 50 metres away but because I can’t see her and she’s in a different street, I’m practically pacing the floor and I can’t wait until I can go pick her up again. Would she think I was unreasonable if I went and got her now…. She’ll have had ten minutes play lol.
I know she needs to grow up and I do love that she’s so indendent but I don’t like it, am I always going to worry or does it get easier?
I am consoling myself by playing with Mr Frugal – Poor thing, he quite clearly wants to be left alone to play on his DS.
