Hellooo! I may have been absent for over a month again (oops) but I am back again, this time with MUCH EXCITEMENT!
If you’re following him (which you totally should be) you’ll likely already know this, but last week I met the very lovely L. Since I have no money and London is expensive, he came all the way up to Leeds for the day and I met him there. Despite me blogging for over two years now, this was the first time I’ve ever actually met up with a blogger (perks of being the lonely northerner, eh?) so I was SUPER HYPED. I’m still incredibly thankful to L for travelling up here, because the day was FAB!
I met L at the train station, and after the initial excitement of OMG IT’S YOU AAH was over, we headed off to do a bit of shopping and just have a bit of a wander around the city. We went to Costa first of all, where I managed to
force convince L to let me pay for his coffee because it was the least I could do to compensate for train fares.
After we’d finished our drinks, we had a wander around the shops and each bought a few things throughout the day. We scoured for bags for L, but nowhere had the sort of bag he needed – for a decent price at least (*cough*M&S*cough*) – but ah well. You’d have thought with so many shops there would be at least one bag that was alright!
For lunch we went to Caffè Nero, where I reluctantly agreed to let him pay for part of mine, then set off again for more shopping/walking. Safe to say my feet hurt A LOT by the end of the day!
Obviously the day eventually had to end, and I hugged and said goodbye to L before he went to find his train and I went to mine. I had so, so much fun, and I am so grateful that L took the time to come up to ‘The North’! It was lovely to finally meet him – he’s a lovely person and, again, if you’re not following him what are you doing?? Maybe one day I’ll have enough money to go to London 😛
L also did a post on his visit, which you can read here 🙂
