Paul - who brings friendly nonsense

Happy birthday to my dearest friend

Today is [info]ilmera 's birthday. I hope she will forgive me for using photos that are not my own, but I just had to show the world how beautiful, wonderful, elegant, astonishing she is. I value all friendships very highly but this one is very special. We have been friends for  a long time now and have always known that, although the geographical distance between us is great, we have a special bond that unites us and keeps us there for each other.

I'm very proud of her, and her daughter, and it meant so much to me when she told me a short time ago that she is now a professor of English at the University in Saint Petersburg. Of course, every professor of English really should visit England. So, one day, I hope to be able to welcome her here, to show her a little of my world in the wonderful way she showed me some of her's when I visited Russia in 2008. You are always welcome, dear. Happy birthday :))
