 I have had a busy and unusual week, but a very satisfying one!

On Tuesday, I was thrilled to go to J D Wetherspoon in Hereford, The Kings Fee and have my photo taken with the manager Ugo . Why you may ask? I am proud to be in the latest issue of Wetherspoon magazine promoting OAPSchat! A professional photographer called Gillian Evans came up from London last month to take the photograph of me for inclusion in the magazine. I was a bit nervous, but it all went smoothly!

Ugo, manager of The Kings Fee, Hereford happy to be photographed with  me and the latest Wetherspoon magazine

I hope that the website will reach out to even more people now as the magazine is read by 2 MILLION people!!

On Wednesday I became a year older and enjoyed a day in Ludlow for my birthday. Derek and I caught the train for the short 30 minute journey from Hereford. Ludlow is a super town with a castle, many buildings dating back to 16th century and a variety of pubs and restaurants. We enjoyed lunch in Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern which dates back to the 14th century! The weather was extremely cold with a biting wind, but the sun obliged every so often and we made use of its' presence for the photos to share with you!
