Blog paradise...

Last night was as if many of my favourite blog(gers) suddenly came to life in London. First up, was the party for the Mechanics Institute Review, where I finally got to speak to the lovely Tania and got her to sign my copy of her book, The White Road and Other Stories, and enjoyed meeting some of the other contributors to the MIR magazine. Sadly, I wasn't there long enough to speak to everyone, but I hope to see more at the next WritLoud event on the 13th October.

Then on to Borders, for the launch of Caroline Smailes's new book, Black Boxes, which looks really interesting. There, I met (and caught up with) amongst others, Leigh, Cathy, fellow bench fan, DJ, Sue Guiney, Kate, Cally (Cally, I can't find your blog - help!) and the best blogging reader, Pierre.

At one stage we were all even sitting together - it was like a blog's sidebar in action! Or maybe even Caroline's Black Box widget. You just didn't know who was going to come into the room next.







Caroline signed my copy of her book too, so I have two more for the shelf of fame.

Hi Sarah! It was lovely to meet you last night. You look exactly like your blog photo and I recognised you immediately. Fortunately I don't look exactly like my blog image! ;o)

So lovely to see you again.
And I am now rather overexcited about being on your shelf of fame!!!

Hey - the three c's! Cally, you certainly were a little less yellow but mind you, Cathy didn't have that handbag either! Caroline, over excited is good - welcome to my life...
