Meeting a Fellow blogger.
Today I had arranged to meet MorningAJ - we have blogged for a long time and she and her partner,K, were on holiday in The Lakes. We arranged to meet for lunch in Kirkby Lonsdale.
Everything went according to plan - we met in the bar of the Royal Hotel, had a coffee and then went on to Plato's Bistro for lunch. We certainly found plenty to talk about - poor old K hardly got a word in edgeways (sorry about that K).
Eventually we got chatting to the couple on the next table only to find that they live very close to where I live and we know people in common. We have promised to look out for one another at the fruit and vegetable stall on our local market on Friday as we both shop there every week. Isn't coincidence an amazing thing?
The weather deteriorated during the day and by the time I came home (a journey of an hour and a half, across the top of the Pennines) there was very heavy rain falling. But I did enjoy the meeting - it is things like this which make the world go round. And, incidentally, many thanks K for insisting on paying the bill and going secretly to pay it without saying a word.
The total of "Bloggers I blog with and have met" now stands at seven. And everyone has been really nice and a kindred spirit. What a difference blogging has made to my life - I hope it has made a difference to your lives too.
