hate to spoil it for you but... don't be surprised if they drop you just as quick! Know that may not sound nice but it can be sooooo true. Speaking from experience the "best gang" can be the worst gang to belong to, honest people don't exclude people and you don't have to wait to be invited to join them. Ignore me and have a good time.
It doesn't sound sad at all. It's hard to maintain friendships with children. Since have my dd, I have lost contact with a few. Although, I do work hard to keep friendships going with those that I really do get on with.
Good luck with your new friends. You sound like a really lovely person so I'm sure they'll think you are great.
Nbg i know how you feel, the same happened to me....except took me longer. It took me 12 months to pluck up courage and swap phone numbers with one of the 'cool crowd' !!! Thank god though, they're really nice girls and it's lovely to feel part of a new city.
Go girl - enjoy it and revel in it - you're in with the in crowd now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
