Jim’s kitchen

Not another Toyboy to talk about….

I mean the place we met for lunch on Saturday.  There were nine of us in number and the craic and chat were mighty.  The venue was new to both Elly and I and as we approached we were looking for the name Jim in the title.  Not finding it we decided to venture indoors to explore.  We did have a text to say they were gathered at a table in the back.

As we were about to make our entrance another lady was eyeing us up.  I asked if she was here for the Blogger’s meet-up and she said “I thought I recognised you”!  We quickly discovered she was Susan C and this was her first meet-up so we quickly headed indoors to make introductions.

Already gathered were Lily, Steph, Cathy. Marian, Lorna, & Marie, and Lily had thoughtfully arranged when reserving the table, to have wine, soft drinks and nibbles for us while introductions were made.  It was a great beginning to a wonderful day.

Beginning centre front with Elly’s cardigan (she was behind the camera) and moving anti-clockwise we have: Lorna, Marie, Marian, Steph, SusanC, Cathy, Lily & GM.

We moved to the counter in batches to select our food and there was something to suit all food needs.  The desserts were to die for and I looked, drooled and past by most of them until I found something without cream.

All the while the chat continued…..

We covered food & drink, cooking, baking & crafting, books & book clubs, keeping chickens & the problems with foxes, the weather and eating outdoors.  Then there were holidays and honeymoons, arranging weddings, and travel. We touched on health before moving on to our common link of Blogs, blogging, blogging platforms and all things techie.  The pros and cons of Twitter and Facebook were aired and debated. We all came away having learned something new

Now I wonder where we will have the next meet-up!
