Imagine my delight when my phone pinged one Sunday evening and I saw that I had received a text from the fabulous Sian of much missed From High in the Sky blog. She was going to be in London and did I want to meet … what?! There was no way I wasn’t going to meet her … and the advantage of being self-employed meant that I could rejig things to make it happen.
We met at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington, because that’s as good a place as any. I decided that we couldn’t spend all the time together chatting over tea and cake, so I purchased tickets for the Mary Quant exhibition (but more of that early next week).
As we perused the dresses, there was talk of family, small businesses, scrapbooking (and the lack of) and the telling of stories (and the lack of). The time passed all too soon, but seeing Sian gave me such a boost. A boost I hadn’t realised I was in need of.
We left each other with promises of not leaving it so long next time. Fingers crossed we’ll be able to make it happen.
