I have this friend we met through our dc's her ds is in the same class as dd. I have enjoyed being friends with her. met up for lunch and in school holidays. our ds's got on well which was a bonus(near in age) but well she has gone cold. twice I Have sent stuff into school for either her ds(dd's friend, she has 2 ds's) and once for her dd's(she has 2) not a thank you, not even an email. I organised lunch this week, as luck would have it I include a couple of other mums, she told me at the very last minuite she couldn't make it, no phone call, no email(saw her at school)

I am useless at school mum friendships, the one good friend I made first moved schools and then moved to Scotland (I think it wasn't just got get away from me ). I think if you watch for the signals that someone wants to talk, looks a bit lonely, then you can spot someone who wants friends and isn't perfectly nice but just busy busy busy.
I really hate bad manners like that - I dont know what it takes for people to say Thank-you. I recently gave some of DD's clothes to a friend of a friend, I gave her the bag and explained what it was. she just said 'Oh Right' - I would rather give them to someone who was grateful for them or the Charity shop!
there is no excuse imo, I once gave a friend a black bag of dd's clothes, she had told me about her friend who was going through a really hard time. the girl was there and said a big thank you to me(she did not know me) so if kids can do it.......
