However ... there WAS time for a fun, impromptu blogging buddies catch up. YAY! :0) I was sitting at work on Thursday, arguing with the aforementioned computer program (GRRRR!) when I got a message from the Fabulous Fiona to say that Chookyblue was passing through our hilly home ... did GB and I want to catch up for dinner? No Brainer! :0) Chooky and I have been blogging buddies since I started blogging about 8 years ago and have caught up for play dates a few times ... and it's always a hoot! :0)
Imagine a country pub on a Thursday night ... the locals out in the bar and the ring-ins in the dining room ... being roped in to the weekly trivia competition. I'm proud to say that the Blogging Buddies won ... GIRL POWER! :0) Just quietly ... there were only two teams ... Fiona, Chooky and me ... and GB and Choooky's Sweetie ... stiff competition! :0) What a fun night we had ...
Here's the victorious vixens! :0) The magic of blogging is that you get to form wonderful friendships with people all over the world who just 'get' you ... they understand your passion for stitching, your urge to create, your love-affair with fabric ... your warped sense of humour! :0) And it's even more special when you're fortunate enough to meet up with them in 'real life' and find that they're just like they seem through their blogging. Fiona and I get to meet up for play dates a few times a month, which is so much fun ... but we've broken records in the last fortnight ... impromptu lunches, dinners, sewing retreats, stitching evenings ... gosh we sound like gad-abouts, don't we?! Thanks for a fun catch up, Chooky and Fiona ... can't wait for the next one! :0)
And now I'm flagging a little from all the week's excitement, so I'm heading off to keep an overdue date with my pillow before I have to obey the alarm in the morning and crawl out of bed to pretend to be a grown up. Hope you've had a fun-filled weekend too ... and that your week is full of unexpected treats ... like impromptu meetings with friends! :0) Til next time ...
