Last night I had a dream that had two people in it I haven’t seen for a few years.
They both live overseas now which is one reason I haven’t seen them. The other reason for one of the people in the dream is that we had a falling out. Only I don’t know what the falling out was over.
We met nearly 20 years ago through an ex of mine and got on really well.
A few years later she moved to England to study and I met up with her in the year 2000 in London. It was indirectly through her that I met my son’s father. She’d met a guy at a party and my son’s father was his friend. It’s a pity we don’t talk any more because I would love for her to tell my son another perspective on the father he’s never met.
She got back to Australia two days before I did and moved into my house until she got herself settled back in. She was great in helping me get through the second month or so of my pregnancy by walking my dog for me and cooking some meals for me. I had no energy to do anything apart from go to work and at that stage I’d told nobody at work.
She was around for the first six months of JJ’s life and if I’d had a christening for him I’d earmarked her to be a godmother.
Then she moved overseas to work when the only contact was email and phone and that was semi-regular.
I think I know why she may have stopped contacting me. It was something I said to her that I think was a valid point but I really should have kept my trap shut.
Anyway, unless I ask her, I’ll never know for sure.
I do think about her sometimes and it was bizarre that she was in a dream last night as if nothing had happened.
