Celtic and Other Connections
If you read Christina's Colourful Life, you'll know where I was at the weekend. We went to Glasgow to the Celtic Collections music festival. My husband goes every year and this time I managed to join him, escaping from school early on Friday afternoon. I enjoyed the concert, but what I enjoyed just as much was meeting Christina who lives in Glasgow. Even though I suggested the meet up, I was a bit uncertain. Would it be awkward? Would we have anything to say to each other in real life? Well the answer is, yes we did - she was friendly and chatty and I felt like I'd known her for ages. Before the concert we met her in a pub on George Square, a former bank which was very impressive. We recognised each other straight away - she was wearing the blue duffle coat she'd made herself and blogged about. So we talked about our families and books and work and all sorts really. I already knew a lot about her as I've been reading her post regularly for a couple of years. Then we went and had a meal in the fish restaurant we always go to when in Glasgow, Gandolphi Fish, and chatted some more. I'm convinced now of the value of blogging - you can actually make friends online. No time to write more now - need to get ready for work.
