I have a secret project. It’s called The Friendly Society.
One day it will be a book, if I am lucky. But at the moment it’s a blog instead. The Friendly Society is all about celebrating pals. I think that being with your friends is really super important. For me, friends are just about as important as family, and for some people friends are the most
important thing of all.
With that in mind, I think that making time to do stuff with and for your friends is the very thing that keeps things cheery and cheesy and chortley. Perhaps you think that too?! Sometimes I think we get caught up in all kinds of noisy, busy, mundane daily STUFF. Ugh. And I think that we can lose sight of the fact that looking after ourselves, our family and our besties is really at the very heart of leading a nice, breathe easy, happy trails kind of life. So that is the very reason why I thought a Friendly blog was a good idea. It’s a reminder of the simple pleasure that friendship can bring. It is a shrine to the goofy aceness that friendship can be, unless your friendships are not goofy-ace. Maybe they are earnest-happy or crazy-irreverent or respectful-kind. Or something else. Whatever type you are, The Friendly Society is totally into YOUR type.
If you would like to submit some old photos of you and your pal/pals then click over and hit the Submission
button! You can also submit found photos or photos which might belong to your family or friends (with their permission!) Yes. That would be the super goodness!
Very important :: pictures should be PRE-1985. Very important! I really love the way that older photos can transport us, so let’s make them earlier than 1985 to ensure a little bit of happy tripping back.

PS :: There have been some complaints! Please note
:: Oh dudies. Please please! The idea is to have images shot on film, and to find images of friends in your family snap shots. Everyone has family! Everyone has Mums and dads and uncles and aunties who will have shots of themselves with friends. This really doesn’t exclude anyone. Please don’t think that, because it’s not the case at all! The photos are pre-1985, but the people finding the photos and documenting the friendship history that may never be published otherwise are people of any age! My kids are doing this too! And they are post 85! It’s positive and important!
