I read other people after a blog meet saying "oh so&so was exactly the same as she is on her blog" blah blah blah .. but Melody wasn't.
I dunno. Maybe because i've always met others in a 'group' setting .. but meeting Melody was like the first time my sister brought home a "Snoopy" VHS and I frowned at the screen .. "Charlie Brown doesn't sound like that !"
Obviously i'd been reading too long and i'd made up a voice to go with. It's ok though, her real-life voice ( and person ! ) was much nicer than the one i'd made up for her.
Am I digging a hole here ? :)
We'd been counting down the days until our playdate, and before M&M came over, I was made to write her name and draw some lovehearts on the blackboard. To which the 4yr old added his own name. "This says "I wub Monet" he told me .. ( and gathering from the parting hugs and kisses, i'll make a stalker out of him yet )
And something i've been meaning to do since at least last Xmas, is get the tins of frozen water out of the freezer and hammer nails into them a'la A Scent of Water like, 3yrs ago ( so long ago, there's no link I can find, and I think it might have been on her old blog ).
Pop in a tealight and hang from a tree. I likey.
