Meeting In London

I've been blogging for around three and a half years now, and the one blogger I've followed from the very beginning is Josie. We've been saying for ages we'll meet soon, but sometimes words are just words, and so I decided it was time to turn words into actions.

Last week I had a week's holiday so I booked a train to London. Sometimes spontaneity is a beautiful thing because I honestly had the best time there. I met Josie in Covent Garden and we just mooched around, mostly just chatting. And that's when I realised how amazing blogging can really be.. I'd never met Josie before, but we were like old friends meeting up again after a few months apart. We know each other, yet we've only met once?!

However, there are things you don't always write about so it was just so lovely to share stories and be given an insight into someone else's world. I'm sure she won't mind me saying, but Josie also has CF, and I was so inspired by her because she really does have the best attitude to life. She is so determined and really doesn't care about what anyone thinks of her, which is just so refreshing. I felt so instantly comfortable to be in her company, and I think that's a rare quality to have.

In the evening, we also met the lovely Sophie for dinner which was so nice as well because the one thing you can't pick up from a blog post is someone's mannerisms, their voice or little quirks so it's always nice to put a face to the writing.

It was so easy for me to just go down to London for the day, and it's definitely something I'd do again. I know people think it's strange when you talk about 'friends' you've never met, but what else do you call people you know really well, get on with really well and enjoy each others company?

I really did have the best time.
