I am always keen to meet new people and see different faces, so I looked forward to meeting fellow blogger Girl Who Walks In The Rain this weekend, especially considering our mutual love of books. We agreed to meet in a coffee shop and then managed to visit all the coffee shops in town before getting to the right one. I have to say I was a bundle of nerves by the time we met up and I kept blabbing and tripping over my own words.
My boys got to meet her lovely juicy-cheeked baby (he is soo not a boogster mash’Allah), although Gorgeous managed to fall off of his chair three times in a row. We enjoyed coffee and carrot cake and chatted about babies, school, work and Pakistan.
She bought me some beading treats (crystal spacers and coloured cord) and books for the kids and me – Winter and Madrid by C. J. Sansom and Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin which I have been hankering after for ages and can’t wait to get stuck into.
This meeting bloggers business in the real world is fun, slightly surreal sometimes, but fun.
