Meeting a Blogger Friend ….

Leslie from Vancouver Canada
and I have been
following each others blogs
for about 5 years ..
AND
yesterday we met for the first time
IN PERSON ..

Leslie came to Oxford from London where she
is staying , to have a  tour around by me
her tour guide LOL ..

Leslie took loads of photos , so I am sure
once she is back home and settled, they will be up
on her blog!! She is a great writer, and her photos
are fab!

But in the meantime, we met and went for coffee, in
Cafe Nero (my fav) and then when we left I changed my route
and so glad I did .. I found a new place to look around
and even purchase gifts!!
Oxford Old Fires Station has been turned
into …
Crisis Skylight, offering a Cafe, Art Gallery and a
beautiful gift shop …
Crisis is the National  Charity
for single homeless people.

  1. Yes, we did have a fab time, but I want to say that Anne is so tiny I look like a blob in the photo! lol She was the hostess with the mostess and took me around to so many beautiful locations like Christ Church and St. John College. And do keep an eye out for when I return home - there will be lots of blogs about my holiday complete with photos from Hampshire, Wales, Liverpool, Isle of Man, Yorkshire and London along with Oxford! Anne, you are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area!

  2. Hallo Tiny Anne!!!! It must have been really special to meet up personally with a bloggy friend, and I'm glad you got on so well together. That new shop is just the sort of place I love browsing around. It's always nice when something new opens up like that. Have a Happy Sunday!
