1. This is a pretty cool analogy and very true. I have lost a couple of friends since being a Mum – some just kind of stop texting and are getting on with their lives really. I have ended up staying closer to other Mums instead which is great. Luckily like you the faithfuls have stayed close. It’s great to make new friends but you often wonder will they last? Great post and thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

  2. What a great comparison!! Love this, and how very true!! I have learned the hard way that only true friends stick around when things are tough but then the ones who do are worth holding on to! Lovely post. #bestandworst

  3. It’s a good way of putting it. I know in my case since becoming a mum maybe I just haven’t put the effort in. But this parenting stuff is hard work and my spare seconds are spent enjoying a lukewarm tea! The faithful friends understand and are always there 🙂 #bloggerclubuk

  4. I like how your brain works! It’s taken me a long time to work out that not all friendships are meant to last a lifetime! In fact they’re the exception #bestandworst

  5. A pretty accurate analogy! And very true. I think friendships change and develop all the time, especially when you become a mummy and you suddenly find yourself closer to those that know what you’re going through.

  6. What a clever post and it’s all so very true. I have been very lucky with friendships in the main although there’s a few people that I have been disappointed by. Often we reconnect though. I love those people that surprise you, going above and beyond. It’s so lovely. It’s definitely about quality rather than quantity when it comes to friends! #ablogginggoodtime

  7. What an interesting way to think about friendships. I’m lucky to have a few “Duracell Batteries” who I know I can always rely on if things get tough. #StayClassy

  8. Great analogy well observed. I’m lucky to have a couple of Duracell’s in my drawer but there have been plenty of corroded ones too. I’ve felt quite let down lately to be honest BUT I have a few of those small round batteries too that sit in the bottom of the drawer for ages until one day you need batteries for something and they just fit and work brilliantly. Those old friends who are there for you when you least expected are worth a fortune. Thank you for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime 🎉

  9. Friendships can be a funny thing eh? I’m 35 years old and have just two friends I can call on and even we’be had our moments. I’m really shy and do not make friends easily but I’m hoping that once my son starts school I may make a few ‘mum’ friends. People I can moan about my kids to who understand lol


  10. I love this analogy, it really is true! We all need a Duracell or two in our lives!

  11. I like what you’ve done here! I have one to add – rechargeables. They sit in a drawer for ages, but you get them out and charge them up and they still work, it’s like nothing ever happened! 😉
