Introduction to The Sleepover
I have five friends that I made when my children were in elementary school. We were neighbours, and our children are the same ages.
When our children were in school, most of us were stay-at-home moms. About once a month, we would send the children off to school, and then we would meet and cross-country ski, or hike, or play tennis. We would have lunch and go back home before the school bus brought the children home.
At one point, I started to write about our adventures.
Most of the stories I wrote ended up being more fiction than fact. So I stopped using my friends’ real names.
This week, I am going to share with you one of these “not so factual” stories, based on my real life wonderful friends. I’ll call my friends “the girls”.
The writing tone is informal and conversational, so hopefully you will learn some new terms that you can use in everyday English.

Our tennis game was finished and we were sitting on Linda’s deck sipping tea and enjoying the sun.
Most of our children were at summer camp that week. Our husbands were all extra busy with end-of-summer projects on our acreages. I suppose we were all feeling a little lonely.
