I have been planning to start writing and publishing blogs for some time now and I decided that this month would be the month. I thought it would be a good idea to join a blogging challenge to write every day in May and when I went on google to look for one, I found Blog Every Day in May from Elizabeth. I decided to join her and all the other bloggers in doing this challenge. So here is the first post of the month.
One of the things that all my girls have been interested in lately is the ‘friend book’.
This is a book with some kind of questionnaire where answers need to be filled in by each friend.
They are very popular here in Holland. You can buy a lot of different ones in different styles and with different (but a bit similar) questionnaires.
Ixora and Yovannah got one at the end of last year and Nevaeh finally got one a few weeks ago.
I used to love them too when I was young. When I was living in Suriname, I did not have a real friend book yet as the ones you can buy here in Holland in the shop, but I used to have note books where I would make up the questionnaire myself.
They were always interesting because you would find out a lot of things about someone which you did not know. When I was a teenager I made my first one. I was moving from middle school to high school and thought it would be a nice way to remember my class mates by. It was very interesting and strange to find out that some guys seemed to like me more than they showed.
In another book I made years later, I thought it would be nice to add the question; ‘ what do you think about me ?” That also led to surprising things like finding out that a good male friend thought that I looked ‘sexy’ (?) Funny ! I helped Yovannah and Nevaeh to fill in the answers in Yovannahs friend book and learned that one wants to become a ballerina and the other a princess. So funny and cute !
But looking at the questions in Yovannahs friend book (I actually promised her that I will also write in her book at the end) made me think that it would be fun to answer them in a blog post.
Today when I decided to join the BEDM and as I looked at the topic for today, I remembered that I still had this post that I planned to write for a while.
So here are my answers to the questions in Yovannahs friend book.

|Yovannah just got her first friend book|
So this was my first post for this month and I really hope that I can stick to my plan to write every day this month. Some days I might use the topic of the day and some days not.
I hope you’ll be here to read a long and I hope to hear from you when you do.
Did you have a friend book when you were growing up ? I would love to hear from you.
