I was very ill with flu in December and didn't feel properly well again until the end of January so I’ve gradually been catching up. Business has suddenly picked up these last few weeks so I’ve been unexpectedly busy, which partly explains the lack of attention to the blog.
However, I’ve had some pleasant interruptions, too, the highlights of which included the following.
Firstly, another visit from Gillian who came over for a girly evening and I was happy to let her try out a few of my outfits as we’re a similar dress size if altogether different heights.
I also really enjoyed meeting Becca who writes this blog here http://rebeccas-introspective.blogspot.co.uk/. We had a nice chat and got to know each other better over a particularly good meal in Chez Lindsay in Richmond in SW London, a French Breton restaurant. The waiters were very attentive to us. I look forward to seeing her again soon.
Last night Tina Penny visited London again. She was last here about 18 months ago and we spent a nice evening with Joanne, Mike and Helena, meeting at my favourite watering hole, the upstairs Opera Room at the Chandos pub just off Trafalgar Square. Then on to another nice meal at Melanie’s in Soho, with plenty of giggles.

Just thought I’d mention that it was in the Chandos last week that I happened to sit opposite four young gay men, or two gay couples if you prefer. They were just chatting and laughing and occasionally stealing a kiss and having a cuddle and it was really lovely to see. Seeing people in love makes me feel all fuzzy. It’s a straightforward pub, though a nice one, not a gay venue and I hope that soon there’ll be no need for any specifically gay venues at all and people can just have a nice time out without being fearful of disapproval.
This coming weekend I’m expecting Kay Denise and her wife to stay for a couple of days. I’m sure we’ll find something to do in this vast, amazing city.
Well, now it’s back to the workface. My work hours have to be very flexible these days, but then that helps me fit in lots of time with my girlfriends.
