it's a successful blogmeet if you don't end up dead

We had a lovely weekend in Somerset, not least because we spent yesterday afternoon at The Witchery, with the foolishly hospitable Kitchen Witch and SheWeevil.

It was rated a success by all; even SheWeevil, who was first nearly beheaded by the lawnmower B and I had in the back of the car when we braked suddenly on the journey between the bus station and The Witchery. And then by getting KW's Trick Chair, which humourously collapsed around her.

There were no axes in sight, although there was a large mallet, which is part of the door-closing apparatus at The Witchery. Do not annoy this woman, you might not live to tell the tale ...

Blogging is going to be a bit thin on the ground this week, due to the packing frenzy. Bear with me.

  1. Still packing and you find time for blogmeets in Somerset! We used to play cricket in Hinton Charterhouse. It has or had a wonderful pub that did great food and beer. Unfortunately the sun, food and beer rendered me totally incapable of plaing cricket and the village was ever after known as Chinton Haterhouse.

  2. Chuffed for you all that the weekend was a success.

    I wouldn't expect much from you this week with your move (!!!) looming. I hope that you and B (and assistants?) can keep the stress level down while you affect relocation, that all goes smoothly with the physical act of moving all your "stuff" and that your new home is a place of happiness, harmony and success.

  4. Foolishly hospitable, eh? I take it that the poisons haven't kicked in yet then! ;)

    Good luck with the packing. Hope all goes smoothly, and look forward to lots of smug 'we now live in the country' blogging next week, albeit via dial-up!

  6. I met someone at the weekend who's blog I read pretty regularly. It was strange because I knew all about some parts of his life and other parts were a complete mystery. In fact I couldn't get used to refering to him by his real name.

  8. Glad to hear the meet up went well. Good luck with the rest of your packing.

    Why does KW need a mallet to close her doors? I'm intrigued.

  10. Enjoy the packing....

    I've met quite a few people via the 'net. Admittedly most of them were via wildlife forum's and not bloggers (or weren't at the time).

    I met cherrypie via blogging and she is almost normal.

  12. Kate: mallet needed for back door; stuck fast because it swelled over the winter, and is now most determined that it's become part of the wall, rather than a means of entering/exiting the house. However, once opened, it becomes equally determined that it's actually a hole in the wall, and doesn't want to be closed up again, thank you very much, all of which means it takes a mallet to, er, persuade it back into place. ;)
