Yesterday I had the pleasure of having lunch with TWO Blogger buddies: Meow, whom I've met twice before, and Gina, who has only recently come onto my radar screen.
I know it is said time and time again, but I just have to say that blogging has to be one of the best ways EVER to meet people of similar interests, people who I would have missed out on, no matter how many clubs I joined. It's actually sad to think that before blogging I could have walked past these two wonderful ladies, in the city, at a local shopping centre, even lived in the same suburb, and I would have never made their acquaintance. So I am rejoicing at the opportunities that blogging provides, plus having the time to take advantage of those opportunities. (Oh, have I mentioned lately that I'm retired? heheh. It's almost time for me to do a post summarising my first year of freedom).
Thanks to Gina I have discovered a new source of paper and wonderful collection of stickers, as well as other craft items. And I'm glad Gina was there to show me the way to this shop as it was in an out of the way place, but well worth it.
I couldn't help comparing the experience of following Gina (with her, to me, mysterious Andre Rieu scarfed draped in the rear window) and that of following Miss Eagle a few weeks ago, again leading me astray to another craft heaven. Gina is a lot easier to follow, whereas Miss Eagle bolted out of the blocks in her station wagon and it was a case of catch me if you can until we reached our destination. lol!
