I've just spent a wonderful afternoon in London with Melissa, having lunch, doing a bit of shopping (for lovely stationery, mostly, which is a passion we share!), talking, laughing, drinking coffee... it was simply delightful.
More good news: Melissa has convinced me that I should go to Poetry By The Sea next May, so that'll we'll meet again; I'm planning to do just that! I hope to meet lots of old friends there, and some new ones too.
(Who's going to PBTS? There'll be a separate thread on it next year, but it won't hurt to say so here, if you're thinking about it...)
