This afternoon I finally met in real life someone I've known for around eight years, along with a mutual friend we've each known that long. We met online in adverse circumstances and have chatted over the years. Today we finally met in Glasgow because D is in Scotland for a weekend break, and L and I were both free.
The photo is the cover of the tea (coffee, etc.) menu from our Deluxe Afternoon Tea in the Willow tearoom on Sauchiehall Street. It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't extortionate and we devoured every last morsel. We chatted about all sorts of stuff, some happy, some sad, and most importantly, celebrated life.
The sun shone, we enjoyed some time at Kelvingrove museum and a ride on the subway, we ate a wonderful meal together and smiled a lot. I'm tired now, and I have work still to do, but choosing life, living well and making the most of opportunities, that's well worth than having to play catch up this evening!
