Look who came to call.


Lovely surprise today when Denise Nesbitt and her husband said they were going to call in and see us. I have blogged with Denise for a couple of years - we do not live all that far apart - maybe fifty miles. So it was very nice when then rang about coming.

They turned up on this beautiful Honda motor cycle, and in matching motor cycle gear - very trendy and smart. As you can see from the photograph, Tess was very pleased to see them too.

We had an hour and a half's chat, a cup of tea, a piece of cake - and then they were off home again. The wind will be behind them on their way back, so hopefully it will not be as cold as it was when they came over.

Isn't it good to meet blogging friends? That is the power of blogger I think - that we make friends all over the world - people with whom we have a lot in common but who we would never otherwise have met. Long live blogger.

How lovely for you all Pat and on such a glorious day too. At least, I hope it has been glorious in Yorkshire. I even sat outside to eat my lunch though I was glad of a cardigan. Did my first real gardening of the year and enjoyed myself.

I just met last Monday a blogger friend from Victoria BC. They are taking RV trip and just going where they want. Lucky for me they stopped in Tucson.

How lovely for you. I met Denise (and her husband) a few years back when I was taking middle daughter up to check out Durham Uni. We got on like a house on fire! I'm sure you did too.

How cool is that? It's amazing how blogs and interaction over the internet can realise themselves into real life friendships :)

Meeting bloggers has been a good experience for me every time. I've had bloggers visit from the US on their motorcycles - we should put the two couples in touch with one another!

Yes - it was fun. Denise is the one bending down to speak to Tess!

Off to meet another blog friend today.
