A day in Londontown

What’s the true definition of friendship, you ask? It’s when you go to Londontown with friends to see Martha Beck talk at Earls Court, and when everyone in the room has had their book signed, your mate Sas (unbeknown to you) siddles up to Martha and has a wee little chat, which may have included the words ‘my friend Sus wrote a book‘ while giving her a copy. And the very lovely Martha Beck says: ‘ooh good, I needed something to read on the plane to Africa.’

THAT, friends, is true friendship.

    You had me at that tin with the Queen riding a horse on it. Now, if you, a person I’ve never met, happened to buy that tin for a person who lives on t’other side of the world, who is me, then THAT would be true friendship. No pressure. ;)

    Sus… Sas, Martha Beck, London… what a wonderful day! Treasure it and remember the best moments each time you feel a little low… this post was a a perfect example of “Instant Love”… You deserve many days, all of your days like this one.

    Susannah, may I take this opportunity to say thank you to you for ‘introducing’ me (by way of your blog, instagram et al) to the lovely Sas. I *love* her blog, and have enjoyed interaction with her on IG and twitter. I hardly know her really (obviously) but it doesn’t surprise me at all that she did this beautiful gesture. She’s the real deal – as are you.

    Whoa, that is so awesome! I bet Martha will love it!

    I met Martha at the Psychologies event at Foyles on Wednesday and she was so adorable. I have learned SO MUCH from her, and I’m signing up for life coach training soon.

    Hope you feel great today, Susannah! Can’t wait to read your book and to meet you in Portland.
