A was busy working up on the Sunshine Coast and I wasn't sure when, or even if, he would be home last night. I got down to the Carrarra Stadium and was sitting in the car listening to the Suns game against the Tigers when I got an sms from C saying that they were there and at the media entrance. While my heart was racing, I knew that I had come this far I needed to actually get out the car, put my best foot forward and go and meet them. I knew that they were lovely people but that didn't make it any easier - I really battle meeting new people, especially if I am by myself with no support from A.
We went into the stadium and it was so much fun even though I didn't know the first thing about what was happening. The atmosphere was great. Then I saw that Ames had posted a photo on twitter of the stadium and tweeted back asking her if she was behind the commentators (although when I had another look I saw that she was taking the photo from in front of the commentators - sorry Ames !) - we found each other and waved and a short while later she and her family came over and sat with me which was very nice as she explained the basics to me. C & C came over and chatted for a while and then before the next bout we all went and sat on the floor up close and personal to the action !
I really enjoyed the evening and am so glad that I went - thank you for allowing me to spend the evening with you and for patiently explaining the rules and tactics to me. It was a fantastic evening.
So, linking in with Dorothy from Singular Insanity with Things I Know - I know that there are many lovely people that I have met through blogging / twitter / FB and I know that, when I need to do things that I think I am not capable of doing, I am wrong - I can do them !!!
We are off for an afternoon of barefoot bowls - enjoy the rest of your weekend and have the best week ever !
