I have spent the last five years reading all your fun stories about meeting up with blogging pals. I had resigned myself to never meeting any of you, simply because I’m in the UK and you are mostly in the US or Canada. I doubt that Mo and I will ever travel that far. Mostly due to cost, but we also have other reasons that would prevent us from ever making a long journey and who would want to travel this far to meet up with us?
Well, it’s happening and I still can’t quite believe it.
It started something like this…..
“We are finally going to do our European holiday! We are going to Paris”
Me: “Oh, how lovely for you”
“Who knows? We may get to see you. I have never fancied England, but Dave wants to go”
Me (Tongue in cheek): “It would be great to meet up with you”
Time passed and I didn’t expect it to go any further than that. It was a nice thought, but I doubted it would happen.
Well, it is happening! Kathy (The Junk Drawer) and Dave are coming to Yorkshire. Not just for a few hours, but for two days!
It seems fitting that hers was possibly the first blog post I ever commented on. It was 2nd March, 2008 and this is the comment. I was so polite back then.
In the last few weeks email after email have been flying back and forth and it is actually happening! I can’t quite believe anyone would go to the lengths Kathy and Dave have gone to AND cutting two days off their holiday, just to meet up with us.
They get here the morning of 30th of this month. We are so excited! We can’t wait! Watch out for some stories from those two days.
