I haven't met many people ... actually none at all really who haven't got a tale to tell about friends and family not keeping in touch.
At our leaving party I sent a book around for people to put e-mail addresses in etc.. we had all the 'I'll keep in touch..I wish I was as brave as you' comments.
Out of that whole book of over 100 people only my best friend, sister and mum and dad keep in touch. After a year of getting no e-mails from them all I sent them all a sarcy e-mail saying how time flies and how guilty I felt for not keeping in touch enough and how I really valued their friendship - guess what - no response from any of them!!!!
Hubbies theory is that they don't want to know how our lives have improved and how happy we are...
