This morning was, oh, so exciting! I was practically squealing with delight and having to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! And why was this, you ask?
Because today I met this wonderful lady in the flesh …
Yes, I met Mel of I Speak Melsh and she was just as lovely as I knew she would be. How lucky I am that it transpires that she doesn’t live that far away from where my mum lives. We talked scrapping, parenting and families to name just three subjects and drank skinny Fairtrade gingerbread lattes, of which I am now a convert (much less sweet that the ones offered by Starbucks). She had her The Children with her and it’s no lie when I say that they were delightful. (If my DS turns out as well as those two, I will be content.) The Girl acted as photographer, that’s her shot above … can you see the book with animal cupcakes on, to my left? The Girl was adamant it should be in the shot. So it is, but here’s a cropped version of Mel and me.
And here is Mel with her The Girl.
And last, but not least, here is Mel’s The Boy. The Boy was totally unfazed that he had to spend 2 hours with a woman he didn’t know and then watch her and his mum get their cameras out in the middle of a bookshop. He’s a dude.
Mel gave me a gift ~ the gorgeous Card Organiser you can see below. I’ll photograph the inside pages in the daylight tomorrow. Thank you, Mel. I love it!
I had planned on giving Mel something that I’d made myself, but time got away from me. I’m afraid she had to make do with a bunch of flowers (and I forgot to photograph them, so this image is from Mel.)
An absolutely perfect morning. Thank you, Mel and The Children. And a big thank you to my mum ~ she took DS off on an adventure and I don’t think I was missed at all.
Who can I meet next ….?
