Lunching out

I met up with Silverback today. I should have been writing 'Keith and I met up..' but Keith didn't make it, mainly because he had been working at Chirk and hadn't listened to me tell him that Ian was arriving at 12 o'clock, not 1 o'clock, but also because, as it happened, he couldn't get away on time anyway.
"Men just never listen," I commented as I ended my call to Keith, prior to ordering Ian's meal, having not listened to him asking for the 'Lighter Bite' option. (Well, I'm not denying that we women have the occasional lapse, you know.)
Anyway, I pulled up in the pub car park and spotted the real life version of 'Silverback' almost immediately. So far, I've only met up with one other blogger, Yorkshire Pudding last year and of course, it's quite different from other first time meetings. Because of following their blogs, it's more like meeting up with an old friend. I feel I know a lot about them already and we're just picking up the conversation where we left off and so it was with Ian.
I really enjoyed meeting up with him but unfortunately, Ian had miles to go before the end of his day, so all too soon, he had to leave.
However, he and Daphne are going to come back later this summer, so we should all get the chance to meet up then.
Here's wishing him a lovely, relaxing week in Tenby!

  3. That was a very quick reply! Hey you are a nice person so it would be nice to keep in touch again.

    I have finished my agency work for Summer so have plenty of time to catch up - if you want! Either through this Blog or one of mine, email or whatever?

  4. Certainly, Ron, but I'm afraid I can't find your email address. If you email me at my hotmail address, I'll reply to you from there.

  5. How were Silverback's table manners? Did he leave his knife and fork tidily together to the left of his plate?

  6. As a Yorkshire inhabitant, like yourself, his manners were, of course, impeccable. ;)

  7. Sounds fun! I hope to meet up with a few more bloggers at some point!

    With my luck, when I'm in Silverback's native area, he'll have pushed off back to Florida.
