…the most delightful dinner companion!

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that Vicki Kate has made some lovely Tofino pyjamas and was modelling them in her hotel room.

In Preston.

Which is very close to where I live.

So we agreed that the next time she came to visit we’d meet up.  Which is what we did last night.

Trying to explain to the mums at the school gate the nature of our friendship was fun. You guys get it, but the general response was “soooooo…you’re off to meet a random stranger you met on the internet?  On your own?   Oooooooooooookaaaaaaaaaaaay!”

Which just makes me laugh.

But not as much as I laughed last night.  Vicki is such wonderful company.  She’s smart and funny it felt like we’d known each other for ever and were just picking up from a conversation we’d had yesterday.  We talked about our kids, and sewing, and home making, and sewing.  About working mothers and crossfit and paleo diets.  We ate a delicious dinner (not paleo!) and talked some more.

We talked so much I completely forgot to take pictures.

Which, I think, is a pretty good indicator of a fun time!

I can’t wait to do it again.  Come back soon, VK.  And bring your menfolk with you.
