The lunch date



A couple of weekends ago I had the great pleasure of bumping into fellow blogger Melanie whilst out for a walk. I've been a fan of her blog for a long time, so when I recognised her there was a strange moment where blog life and real life crossed over. It was like seeing a famous person and then feeling that you really really had to say something to them (which I've only done twice - to Andie McDowell and David Thewlis when I was a teenager and I'd just moved here. I soon realised it wasn't the done thing, and now I ignore famous people when I see them in the street just like everyone else!). Anyway, we arranged to meet for lunch on Saturday and I had such a great time I didn't really take any pictures!
