Blog Meet

Time: 14.30 Sunday 3rd August
Location: Secret Pub in Bury St Edmunds
Reason: Bloggers Meet up to bid Farewell to Ruby

Even though many bloggers were on holiday or swimming in some strange location somewhere, a good number of bloggers, commentors and Pickles met up for a little drinky poos on Sunday afternoon.

It was good to catch up with those I had met before - Florries Mum, Bury Boy, Ruby, Cashier No.5 and to meet those I only knew from their blogs - Grumpy Old Woman (who was only 1 of those 3 descriptions!) and Four Pints (who was at least 5 pints when I left) who flew in all the way from Detroit just to be there (maybe).

For those NOT of a nervous disposition Ruby has a photo of us ALL on her blog. You have been warned.

It was a shame to have to leave the get together first but the Pickles were getting restless and Picklesdad was desperate to get home to watch the SKY+ Grand Prix, even though naughty Bury Boy did hint at some of the results!

A good time was had by all, I hope we can manage to arrange another get together one day without Ruby to organise it all for us.

Good to see you all yesterday-and to finally meet Picklesdad. We will have to find an exscuse for another meet-how about 'GOW finally has her knee-op' or 'Hoffy celebrates swimming the Channel twice'or '21st Century Mum finally reveals her secret' or 'Bury Boy shaves his beard off'

Sorry I missed it. Hope you had fun.

It looks like you had better weather for the Blog meet up than we did for our BBQ. I ended up cooking in the garage while everyone else sat indoors.

Maybe I'll be able to make the next one if it happens.


Sorry I missed you. I was one of those on holiday. As you say, it's a shame Ruby is leaving for us all to meet up. Another get-together may be in order to cope with her absence. Call it group therapy ;-(
