London Meet Up - 20th November 2010 - Quick Report
Firstly thank you to everyone, those that were able to attend, and those of you who supported us, but were not able to attend. I think I'm right in saying we had a great afternoon together.
We started with lunch in Tate Modern. Lots of 'getting to know each other' discussions over the main course.... then in the pause before desert someone got out their Filofax.. and it started a whole trend of all of us getting out Filofax organisers of different styles sizes etc... people had to be reminded of the time and to order desert!!! The picture to the right is during our 'Filofax Course' part of our meal together! Don't worry I will put names to all the faces in the pictures in my full report.
At about 3:30 we started making our way along the embankment, it was a bit like a school trip, I had to keep doing a head count to make sure we hadn't lost anyone!! But we navigated our way along a very crowded South Bank of the River Thames towards Waterloo Bridge and then across the bridge and in to the busy crowded streets of Covent Garden to the Filofax Shop in Neal Street.
We then more or less took over the shop and had a great time looking at all of the different models, some of the sale items on offer and chatting with the shop staff.
As 6pm approached we all said our good byes and headed off in different directions for trains home. I know by the time I got back to my hotel in Tunbridge Wells, I was tired and shattered, but after a shower and a beer I started to reflect on the day and everything we did and said. What a great day and it will be one I will remember for a long time.
So this is short and sweet, I will expand on all parts of our day in my more complete post and I'm sure you will be smiling when you see some of the photos of the day.
Again thank you to you all, you all made it happen, and I'm sure we will be doing this again soon.
