So, yesterday, I had been subdued and moochy most of the day, and then late afternoon I had cause to try and get into my Facebook account, which I have been unable to get into for months and months and months. Amazingly, and very strangely, I was able to log in, and I was spotted straight away by a friend from America that I used to play one of the games with. It was nice chatting to her again 🙂
Aaanyway……..I discovered a folder I had never seen before in the messages section, and I glanced in……………and you could have knocked me over with a feather – seriously.
There was a message in there….from 18 months ago ……when I was still active on FB, from one of my best friends from school. OMFG!! We found each other about 14 years ago, and had spoken on the phone a couple of times, when we got burgled. All his contact info was on the computer that got stolen, and we lost touch again.
I have hunted for this dude so many times over the years, and there he was sat in a secret inbox for the last 18 months!! I replied, he replied this morning, and it has seriously made my year!! My entire year!!! 😀
There was also another message in that folder that had been there a few months, and this one made me cry my eyes out. It was from an old friend of my mum’s, that I remember from when I was small. She had stumbled on my name on a picture and got in touch to see how mum and dad were.
It was awful, eye-blurringly awful to write back to her to tell her about mum passing away a year ago that very day. Her reply to me was both delighted to hear from me and so sorrowful at the same time.
Two huge blasts from the past.
I’m not sure what to make of it in one way, I mean, there is a real poignancy about it.
But I am VERY excited to chat to my old friend again, I have missed him greatly over the years, and it’s given me a real, much needed lift 😀
