Long time, no see!

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - News -

About 30 years ago, Woman’s Weekly ran a pen­pal sec­tion, and I re­sponded to a lady called Lynette, who lived in Tas­ma­nia at the time, while I lived in West York­shire. Over the years, we’ve be­come firm friends via let­ters and emails, as we’ve shared the ups and downs of our fam­ily lives.

Both now in our 60s, we met for the first time in Septem­ber when Lynette took time out from an epic tour of Europe to travel up to Bridling­ton and meet me. It was won­der­ful to meet her af­ter all these years of friend­ship, so thanks, WW, for the in­tro­duc­tion.

I won­der if any other read­ers who also re­sponded to some­one in the pen­pal sec­tion are still in touch 30 years later?
