One in five prefers Pizza

Oh laugh!  We met up with Annie and her man Doddy on Wednesday...pics at Jan's blog and at Di's...here I've lifted directly from Jan because there was so much camera action I didn't bother. 
Jan would probably like me to add this : taken by our friendly waitress.  Because Jan is in the middle there see, and her talents just don't extend to LITERALLY being in two places at once!
Left to right then: Annie, Doddy, Jan, Di and Me

Jan is the better photographer by a Wiltshire country mile!  I wish you could have been with us to see Annie's face when Jan pulled out the professional DSLR with gadget everything!  Annie was clearly expecting the amateur point-and -shoot variety that I use, or even a phone; made me smile!
We chatted.  We laughed.  We all agreed that however we appear on our blogs, it's not quite who we are, so it's always worth trying to meet if you like somebody already! Annie gave us lovely lovely pressies and we had a photo call from Twiglet...definitely missing from this line-up.  The weather was indifferent so we overstayed our welcome in the restaurant and chatted some more.  It was wonderful,  uplifting and fun. Annie and Doddy broke into their summer holiday bliss for this day of madness, and I think that's brave and wonderful of them, holiday is so precious! 
Really sets you up well for more, I can tell you.  Please be urged...if you live near enough for a trip to meet a fellow WOYWWer who you already get on with - do try it. Or resolve to come to a WOYWW Crop and try it in multiples!  Inevitably, I'm linking this up at Annie's for a Friday Smile...although it's Saturday.  And the title? We were in a Pizza restaurant. Only one of us had Pizza.  Can you guess who...just from studying the characters? Bet you can't.

Hi Julia, thanks for joining in the fun this week....even if it does include the photo of the beached whale on the left! Not to worry....it's fast reducing :-)
Life should be full of Amy's like that. Here's to many more.
Hugs,

Looks like a fab time was had by one and all...and a lovely thing to be able to meet up with new friends.

Avril Ann said...

Looks like a fabulous time was had by all, no idea who had the Pizza, though, LOL, and I agree with you about meeting our Cyber Friends, I have had the pleasure of meeting a fair few of mines and hoping to meet many more in November at the NEC, xxx

Anne said...

Looks as though you had a wonderful time and I am envious of your get together ;-) Anne x

Carmen said...

Aw it's lovely seeing Annie properly and you all too. I agree (even if I'm a bag of nerves beforehand) meeting up is so much fun and I've met the best friends through it :)

Helen said...

How lovely to see Annie, and Doddie too - shame Jo couldn't have been there too... I reckon the pizza eater is...hmmm I'm not very good at this. You. Have a great weekend.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

This put a BIG smile on my face as I read with glee your fun time together. What a fun time the five of you must have had.

However, I was also saddened by what you said. I feel so isolated in the States, wishing I could join you. I feel I know so many deskers through WOYWW that it's hard to have to watch from afar. Believe me, if I ever get across the pond, I'll be hitting you up for some fun and smiles, too.

Thanks for the link to your uncle's blog. Those were some gorgeous mandalas. He takes super photos.

And lastly, I think the pizza eater must have been YOU.

Laurie said...

now thats a happy bunch! I'm not sure about who ate the pizza but if I was there I would, I could eat pizza every day!

Di said...

A lovely day indeed! I didn't notice anyone with pizza though - was I asleep? :)

Hugs, Di xx

Mary said...

How fun. The invite goes your way too. Our home is humble, the food is great, and we can sit for hours laughing or crafting, or all of the above. I met Bridget Larsen in July. The visit was way too short. She is a crack up, Happy crafting, hope to meet one day.

Monica said...

Meeting up is so much fun though for Krisha and me to meet I had to travel 1700 miles. well worth it. So happy she caught my post on WOYWW about our proposed trip and made the suggestion that we meet.

Renee said...

Lucky you being able to meet up! It would be so much fun to get together with some "bloggie buddies"!
Hugs, Renee

Darnell J Knauss said...

So great to see you muppets all get together like that, Julia! Please do let me know how those airline reservations are coming along for your trip to visit me!!

scrappymo! said...

You al look so happy!
How wonderful to meet up!
I have very recently had a chance to meet two wonderful WOYWWers and I can attest to the fact that it is indeed uplifting. Our creative energy is contagious...meeting each other adds to the sharing of energy and ideas that prompts creativity!

Eliza said...

Fantastic fun had with friends, yes you should try and meet up the best you can you never know what can come from it.

I do plan on travelling o/s to meet some of my online buddies, it is in the future plan. Yoda wont be allowed to travel with me and I think everyone loves him more. LOL

Hugs Eliza

Danie May said...

What a fabulous photo or you all, it looks like you all were having a great time. I agree it is wonderful to catch up and meet your online friends if you can. I am off to NZ next year to do just that. TFS as its so nice to put faces to names. xx

Helene E said...

morning! On my watermark I have used a font called Satisfaction, it's free so just google it =)

Twiglet said...

What a fab photo isn't it - you all look to have had a great time - I know you did cos Annie is still talking about you all!!!! x Jo

Sue from Oregon said...

NOw how much trouble can you get into in a pizza parlor! Looks as if you are having a grand time! Oh such fun!
Who had the pizza??? I will be wondering about that all day LOL!

Carola Bartz said...

Nothing better than spending a really good time in the company of friends.

VonnyK said...

I was hoping you would post a photo, thought I would check back just in case. Looks like a fabulous day, I'm off to see the photos on the other blogs.
Have fun.
Von.

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

What a great photo. Goodness knows who ate the pizza, but if I'd been there it would have been ME!

Glad you all had fun. I think you're write(!) about us not quite being who we really are on our blogs. You get time to consider what you put in a post - the spontaneity of brain not being in gear before the mouth says something is lost!!!! (That's probably a good thing tho, right?)

Hugs
