Yesterday I did something really fun: I met my penpal Cindy! She and I have been writing for about 9 years and we’re birthday twins, so it was extra special to finally meet in person!
We spent some time at my place (I had to show her my kitties and my stationery!), we had lunch at a vegetarian restaurant in Brossard, we went back to St-Jean for some thrift shopping (Cindy found a few tops for herself and I found a few shorts for my son), we went to get Louis-Justin from school, then went to the post office, spent some time in my son’s bedroom (taking pictures!), dropped Louis-Justin at his dad’s house, went to Montreal to have dinner at my favorite vietnamese restaurant and visit Chinatown, then drove back to where Cindy was staying and said goodbye. Whew! That was a long day! My spoken English is not the best (despite what Cindy says), so I was exhausted by the time I got back home (close to 10pm) and I couldn’t remember whether I should speak French or English to my boyfriend. I think even my dreams were in English last night! ;)
So here are some pictures that were taken with Cindy’s phone yesterday.
Louis-Justin and I at the post office…
Me with some LEP mail that was in my PO Box! (Thanks Kat!)
Cindy and I (and the painted dragon) in my son’s room!
All three of us… (Mr. LJ just got a haircut!)
And some funny pictures of Augustin & I!
I met other penpals in the past, but Cindy was the first one I had to speak English with. Hopefully I did OK!
Has anyone else met a penpal lately?
