We ate, we drank, we had fun and we munched chocolates. We also spoke about books and writing, of course, but mainly it was a group of people who, through the internet, were already mates, getting together for a natter. Authors are a very supportive bunch and many of those there helped me when I first ventured to write. Cameras came out and the above photo (courtesy of Alex Roddie) has appeared on Facebook, tagged here and there. I have one or two of my own, mostly of those unfortunates who happened to pass before my eyes when I had my camera switched on.
There's been a suggestion that we do this again and I really hope we do. Some people think we should make it an annual event and I'm up for that, too! A room full of creative types makes for a great afternoon. I hated having to leave.
Thanks to you all for your friendship and here's to the next time.
