on friendship...

On Wednesday, I told my best friend over the phone
that I won't be working on Friday (today)
and that I really needed to spend the whole morning
ironing our summer clothes and putting our winter ones away;
that I couldn't afford to waste another day - it had become too stressful.
This morning, at around 11, she called and said,
"I hope you're doing some work there!"
She usually tells me not to worry about the housework,
and it will get done eventually.
This time, she saw it was getting to me and that procrastination was not an option,
so she thought she should remind me of what I had to do.
It really gave me a boost!
The photo shows a batch of biscuits I made for her a couple of months ago.

Hello Yiota, Those biscuits look delicious and very pretty too! I hope you managed to get the work done today that you had planned. This must be a very busy time for you before the holidays. Do you have lots of school reports to write? Good luck with the run up to the end of term!

Our best friends always know what we really need, sometimes a hug and sometimes a push!

Best wishes!

Sounds like the very best kind of friend Yiota, who knows exactly what you need by knowing you perfectly.

What pretty and yummy looking biscuits. How nice to have a true friend like that. Well, of course, I can tell you are also a true friend to her.
Hope you were able to get your ironing finished.
