This trip to London was so lovely - mainly beacause of the time spend with very good friends and family.

My first Blog meeting was all set up with Wendy - i told her we could meet outside the bookshop at the Tate Modern. We waited excitedly for a long time and then we started thinking Wendy had got lost on the way.."But how can you miss the Tate?" I asked Rami...then suddenly in the foyer i spotted a familiar face.."Wendy?"..."Julie?".... big hugs... I didnt know there was another bookshop downstairs!!! Sorry Wendy! We had such a lovely afternoon, mainly eating and drinking and talking. I felt like i have known Wendy for years though. Cant wait until the next time xx

The next day I had arranged with Janet to meet in Chelsea - perfect!!! We had another wonderful afternoon with non-stop chatting (some eating and drinking) and lots of perusing in and out of the wonderful shops in the area. Janet is so inspiring as a successful artist and a lovely, lovely person. xx

Unfortunately, i dont have any photos to show :(

Other highlights -
Being with my parent who spoilt us all rotten!
Laughing and crying with oldest friends A and I.
A picnic with newly wedded friends in the beautiful grounds of Kenwood House.
A new camera - a present from my parents.
Rami seeing Machester United and Chelsea fans pouring into the new Wembley Stadium!
The girls came home speaking English!

And now back to real life... :)

    do you know I used to walk to kenwood house when living in london? it was about 45 minutes - 1 hour through the heath from my house. I miss that.
