I am certainly more relaxed than I used to be , I need to know and remember how and why I started blogging when I see what it has brought me , the answer isn't material goods it is friends. Before the blogging was the comping and this is where the core of my hardcore friends come from, we all love the thrill of the chase but comping has brought us experiences and life changing prizes. One of the prizes I had the joy to be part of was to be invited to stay at the Landmark hotel London with Bobby , her husband and Emily. I shared a room with Emily , bearing in mind I'd never met this people before! a risk you might think meeting strangers but I'd talked so much to these people on line , it was more family.
Sadly Bobby died last year and I miss her very much , yes we only met once but such a lady left a lasting impact upon my life. I'm still in touch with Emily and again we've only met once but we talk regularly and for myself I only have to meet someone once to get the measure of them.
