I keep putting this blog post off because I'm embarrassed that I have NO PHOTO'S to show at all - not even one! I'll start at the beginning.
I posted previously about what to wear when you are going to meet some fantastic bloggers in real life. I woke up early on Saturday after a heavy night Friday but felt ok. I had already decided what to wear in my head so it was just a case of getting ready, checking where I was going and getting a lift to the station. Mission accomplished. Train journey whizzed by and before I knew it I was in London. Mixed messages of where to get off (restaurant website and my seasoned traveller husband saying 2 different things). So, as per usual in the life of Fiona travelling in London, I got lost .. very lost! I was late, very late and I was hot and bothered and flustered when I finally arrived.
OH - MY - GOD .. how freakin weird is it walking into a room full of ladies you know by sight because you follow their blogs but you don't know really .. I can't actually describe it it's that weird.
Within 5 minutes the wine was in hand and away we went through 10 hours, yes that's right 10 hours of non stop chat and laughter. I wish I could share with you some of the things we discussed but as agreed in unity - what goes on on tour, stays on tour.
I am eternally grateful to Avril for ensuring we were walking in the right direction to catch our train home to Reading together and from there on in (train from Reading to Newbury and then taxi home) I really can't remember that much! It took me ALL of Sunday to recover and I actually went back to bed at 10am as I couldn't do anything but lie down!
So, back to the lack of photos ... I took 4. One was very blurred but I had to show willing as everyone else was taking photos of each other and I thought I'd better join in - didn't check what the actual photo was like and then I thought I'd get some later on but it was too dark and again the camera was wobbling (not me, the camera I tell you!). And then an epic fail on my part as I just deleted them all yesterday for no sane reason and now I'm kicking myself because whilst on the train (this is SOOO bad) there was this really nice looking man and I took his photo! But I don't even have that to show you - sob.

Oh and what did I wear? An outfit that is 'very me'. I added another massive wool scarf and denim jacket on too as it was snowing when I left at 10am
