One of the great delights of blogging is getting to meet blogging friends in real life. Becky and I have known each other since 2006 via our blogs, and we have met in London before, but today was different. Today, she and her husband came to visit me here in the middle of England, and I was able to show them where I live, and the places (and some friends) I talk about. Well, I didn't "show" her my friends, I invited Peter and Glynis to meet us for lunch at our favourite local haunt, and lunch extended to a 3 hour delight. The conversation did not falter. Bloggers never run out of words, do they. There was a lot of laughter as well.
It was a lovely easy day, and everyone had a great time. This is one of the very best parts of blogging, as I said at the start of this post. It really is. I am still grinning. I just wish they could have stayed here longer. Next time.
And now the countdown to Friday is on, and another long weekend. It will be slightly cooler this week, so I sincerely hope any rain is gone by the time of the wedding. The weather here has been just glorious, and it is such a delight to be outside as much as possible. Easter has been lovely. Busy. Noisy. Happy. Fun. A wonderful weekend.
