Last Saturday I was in Whitstable.
Lovely Moannie from http://theviewfromthisend.blogspot.com/ lives fairly close to Whitstable.
For any blogger who reads her, you will know why I really felt the pull towards her smashing home, why I wanted, with her permission, to call by, hug and say hello again to Moannie, JP and Milou.
In my experience, it is an unusual event if you get to meet someone via the magic that is t'interweb, (hello Auntigwen http://auntiegwensdiary.blogspot.com/........), although as I have only met two so far, I could be very wide of the mark. Time will tell, as I do hope to meet Katy http://katyboo1.wordpress.com/ sometime this year, and perhaps even at some point Jody http://aboutlastweekend.blogspot.com/. Also Macy and Nana (see I got fed up of fighting with the technology and taking ages to put links in there.....sorry) also Trish, K and Mrs W........oh and the rest of you.......you know who you are. Or perhaps none of you would ever want to meet, maybe t'interweb witterings are sufficient, which is fine. But being so very very close geographically to Moannie, I really had to grasp the opportunity.
My sister, who was the reason for the visit to Whitstable (hello sis) is not a blogger. She is a good sister though and agreed to drive with me to visit Moannie. I am so glad we did.
Now Moannie has not been well of late, but she looked beautiful, JP was charming and Milou would have been kidnapped had my daughter been with us! We had a lovely visit which was longer than last time but brief enough (I hope) not to tire Moannie. She already has the glam nail varnish, and is looking forward to the planned Spring party. The sun will shine, the hammock will be up, the food and drink will be delicious, but best of all the hostess will be fabulous.
