A wonderful meeting between friends

Hello everyone :) I am back lol. I guess by now you know that I went to San Francisco  for my holidays :)))) and that the special person I met was the wonderful Jennifer from plushpussycats  Wow what a meeting . Jennifer was as wonderful as I thought she would be. I confess I was a little nervous but I need not have been  We got on so well from the moment we met and had so much in common. It was so fantastic to meet a blog friend. Jennifer doesn't live in San Francisco so to fly on an almost 2 hour flight just to meet ME was awesome and I am so grateful to her for making my holiday so very extra special. We had a wonderful ( though too short ) a time together. Jennifer is a warm bubbly lovely person my daughter and sister also fell in love with her. We were all sad at parting with her but I have some fantastic memories to keep :)
THANK YOU JENNIFER. It was such a lovely experience and I hope that some day we can meet again and that I get to meet other blog Friends Hmm where is my piggy bank hehe.  Now for some (lots) of pictures  :))))


Beautiful memories of a very special day.
Some more pictures of this very beautiful city.
A working cablecar  wow what a ride.

a beautiful fountain. 

Look at the wonderful merbaby :)

Twin peaks.


One of many ponds in Golden Gate Park.



Sooo many flowers ( these are for you Jennifer :) )

Yay yes thats me on a carousel it was fantastic lol I had never been on one.
Now some of the wonderful buildings.





How about this idea for your dolls house hehe

Me having a real bad hair day lol 


Yes I did eat All that huge icecream : DDDD
I Hope you enjoyed my pictures and that I haven't bored you. There was so much to see and do in this wonderful city. I will make a post another day and show you the wonderful gifts I got from Jennifer and the items that I bought.
I will now try and catch up with your blogs :) at least untill the jet lag knocks me out lol.
I hope you are all having a great week.
Hugs to all my Friends

Como me alegro que lo pasaras tan bien y pudieras conocer a Jennifer, siempre es agradable poder conocer gente que comparte las mismas aficiones que uno mismo.
Estare a la espera del nuevo post para poder ver los regalos y compras.

Amazingly I guessed that it was Jennifer you were going to meet!! I didn't think I'd be right so when I read about your travels on Jennifer's blog I was quite impressed with myself- LOL :0) I love the photos of you with Jennifer and the merbaby is amazing!! My favourite photo has to be the one of your windswept hair, it made me smile :0) I'm so glad you had a fantastic time!!
