I have met quite a few bloggers in real life - with some it is just a meeting, a casual friendship. And that is fine - the way it should be. With others you suspect before hand that it could be more - could be the start of a very real friendship. Mostly because they come across as being honest, tue to life people with values that you share - in our case maybe old fashioned ones because we both loved the other one's kids' manners. And so it was when I met Marcia on Saturday. Really I think we could have chatted another 4 hours without having said enough so we need to meet again. The venue was lovely too - Bambanani in Mellville - stunning service, the best childrens' play area ever (so ranked by the Princess) and good food. Wish it was closer to us.
Marcia was what I expected - a great listener, a great talker. My favorite type of person. And the kidlets - my, adorable. I loved that they greeted everybody so well. I was truly impressed. But very well reminded by how far we have come - what a huge difference two years makes. And a reminder what a handful our used to be - gosh! I forgot! And hers are so much calmer than our boys used to be.
