Pen pal visits London

My pen pal, Cindy and her husband Jim visited London last weekend.  Cindy and I have been pen friends for over 40 years, we have sort have sort of grown up together and until December 2010 had never met.  But last December I took a trip to Berlin and met Cindy and her husband, we met again, briefly, in May this year at Heathrow airport and then again last weekend when they did a flying visit to London.

We met at the Cabinet War Rooms so we could visit it together, then we took a walk up to the National Portrait Gallery for dinner and good long chat.  

I gave Cindy and Jim a small gift that I had made them, which I included in my crafting blog.

  1. How wonderful! Meeting panpals is always great, and there's nothing like seeing somebody for the first time whom you've known for years but never met - I know the feeling. And then the reunions are great, too, of course. Lovely photo of your friends!
