It was the weekend of Girls Only. And it was supposed to be full of Girl Treats: stuff we'd been planning on doing for ages. But in the end, after a busy week, we fell over a bit, to be honest. We spent most of the weekend lying on the sofa, in between revising Biology (her) and doing absolutely nothing, not even knitting socks, (me).
But while we lay there under our blankets (crocheted, of course), wondering who we were going to send out for snacks, we had lots of time to talk about our thoroughly excellent Wednesday afternoon visitors. So today I'm breaking all the Me On Monday conventions and taking you back to the middle of last week..
She tells me that it's been four years since she was here last - I'd been thinking of three (should have looked in the albums, Sian) - but those four years have most definitely turned a blog friend into a real friend. We'd been looking forward to seeing her, not least because this time she had promised to bring along her handsome sidekick. What a star he is! He knows a lot about a lot of things, he can talk Grand Prix, he has an irresistibly charming smile: just the kind of bloke I can't help but fall for. We had a wonderful time!
And so that leaves Me On Monday (with both our boys back safely from a flat emptying end of term trip) thinking about Wednesday hoping we can do it again soon, and marvelling once again on the power of the internet.
Ruth blogs with huge humour and honesty about life with her boy at Everyday Life of a Suburban SAHM. Always worth a visit. She takes fabulous photos.
Last week Jo, Helena, Karen, Julia, Deb, Ruth, Alison, Ladkyis, Eileen, Rinda, Sheena, Karen, Fiona and Cheri all gave us a wave on Monday. Go on, wave back, wish 'em the best of weeks and have a good one wherever you are too.
