September 10th 2012 --- I went to meet ..............

Jennifer  and Lesley  in London.

Leslie and Jennifer had never met before
nor followed each others blogs..
(Jennifer no long blogs .. very busy lady with work, maybe one day)

Leslie  ...oh so British!!!

Meeting up at Nelsons column..
11 am ... all sorted, and then
we find out it is the

Olympics and  Paralympics Victory Parade 
 It was good to get a bit of the atmosphere as everyone was trying to get
 their places for the parade ..   Lots of the volunteers were there
 and a lady from Wales who ran with the torch.

As you can imagine the place was very very busy and was
going to be heaving with people.. and the crowds started
to get in postion all the way down the Strand ...

Jennifer, Leslie and I made our way
to Covent Garden and had a lovely
lunch and a chat....
It was great as nearly everyone else
was waiting to see the procession...

After lunch we made our way to Harrods..
where Jennifer had to meet  her boyfriend Peter .. ,, yes we
met her boyfriend ..:-)  A  quick chat and then 
 and we had  to say
au revoir,

Leslie and I had a browse around in Harrods
then went for tea and cake in Richoux Tea Shop ..
You can see the photo at the top .. we had a
florentine each ..!!

Then we both headed home ..
We did meet up again (Lesley and I)
we met up in Stratford Mall near the Olympic village
and had lunch together in Jamie Olivers. :-)

Fabulous few days, friends,
meeting up and having  fun.
