One Fine Day

I'm about 80% sure that I haven't used the title One Fine Day before, but let's just let that slide. It's stolen from the film of the same name, and features the ever-dreamy George Clooney. But sadly my post isn't about ol' George. It's about my day with Leona! Yay!

Leona's such a babe. I look as hot and flustered as ever. 
After meeting for the very first time a few hours before we saw the awesome McBusted, we decided to meet up again a few weeks later. That was on Saturday, and boy, was it a good one. We met up in Exeter, as a sort of half-way point between us - via public transport, anyways, I'm sure it isn't exactly half-way, but whatevs - and I ended up taking Dylan along with me for the ride. Turns out that Dylan is a well-travelled toddler, who'd have thunk? 

Luckily, the weather was glorious and we decided to have a make-shift picnic by the cathedral. Naturally, we picked the one day a year of a big school fair and the green was absolutely packed! This didn't phase Dylan in the slightest, as he ended up befriending a small child and climbing a statue with him. Oh, to be two. 

We had fun though, and ate melting chocolate donuts and sipped on our fancy drinks from the nearest tesco metro, before wandering around Exeter searching for a Father's Day present for Joe's daddy. I picked wine, because it's wine, and I think my in-law will be pleased. As he'll be babysitting Dylan for a few hours tomorrow, I'm sure he'll be more than happy for some light refreshments! 

Sadly, after a while it was time for us to depart and catch our trains. We decided to have a quick pitstop at the nicest Wetherspoons I've ever visited and sat in the beer garden drinking J20s and lemonades. So hardcore. Dylan, again, befriended some small child and they ended up rolling about together in the grass and play fighting over a wannabe makeshift Iron Throne. Obviously. 

I can't wait for the next opportunity to meet up with Leona again. We were discussing how there should be a small scale meet up with some other lovely bloggers, but that's definitely for someone else to arrange! 

Would you be up for a meet up? Have you met any blogging friends?

  1. Looks like fun! I've met people I knew from ~the Internet~ before and it's always been a great experience (especially meeting my best friend, haha). Not many bloggers yet, but it's something I'm working on since I came to London! I don't know anyone here and I suck at meeting people in like, offline life, so obviously I'm resorting to my blogging contacts. :p

  2. Looks like loads of fun! I've met up with bloggers before, once for a breakfast in a diner, once for a blogger event and once for a meal. The Leeds bloggers are a lovely bunch and I can't wait to meet them again!

  3. I think it's great to meet online friends, cos you usually have a lot in common with them :)

  4. I really wish I'd been blogging when I lived up North, there's so many great bloggers up there! x

  5. I always love meeting up with bloggers. They're so like-minded and friendly!

    Exeter is so bloody gorgeous, too! Thanks for your comment, sweet. You should totally go to Greece properly one day. It's so beautiful and everyone is so friendly. On The Road was quite dry, in my opinion. Relatively interesting though.

  6. Your photos definitely make me want to go, and it's close to my homeland Turkey - yay! On The Road is one of my set texts for next year, which is mostly why I want to read it, but I'm hoping it keeps me interested!


I love hearing your comments, but if you've got a questions you could always ask me on twitter for a speedier response - @Chelsealiml
