A great day out!
Today Man Wonderful and I set our alarm and once awake, set off to North Devon, to finally meet Rachel Radio Star and her family!
I've been blogging a number of years, and Rachel was one of the first people I 'met' online all those years ago.
We've 'chatted' online, and when I got sick, our friendship stepped over into reality and Rachel phoned and texted me throughout my recovery.
I count her amongst my friends.
We send each other bits and bobs in the post, text and chat online,
and today we finally met!!
This was our grin as we separated from the massive H-U-G we gave each other:
We ate a lunch with her gorgeous chap (he's tall, like Man Wonderful is), and her lovely children (tall, handsome young man and adorable daughter with beautiful eyes and a smile as pretty as her mum's).
And we had posh chips in a bucket!!!
Look at that grub: seriously yummy!
Rachel and I did not stop talking; I promise!
Lunchtime just whizzed by.
It had been a bit drizzly this morning, but the sky cleared and so we decided to pootle off to:
I last came here when I was a pre-schooler, and so, 40 years later here I was again!
This is me being fed a carrot. Rachel is behind with the blue and yellow saddle on her back :-P ha ha!
But there was something very, very weird about today: it did not feel like the first time we'd met.
Not at all.
It was like meeting a bezzy mate for a fab day out.
Which is really, what happened.
Until next time.
