There was a funny story to go with my meeting with Catherine in Bendigo (at least we thought it was funny!!!). The 'horsey one' was very concerned when I said I was meeting one of my 'bloggy' friends. How did I know who she was and whether she was in fact who she said she was or was she an 'axe murderer' or a 'dirty old man'!!! I hope this means that the internet education they are receiving is working although I think somehow teenagers forget that facebook is the same thing and knowing someone through association is not actually knowing them, that is a topic all of its own and one I am continually talking about at home!! I assured her and the rest of the family that were somewhat amused by the whole meeting that I 'knew' Catherine was who she said she was and why on earth would someone set up a web of lies around a crafty blog. After we met and within a few minutes it felt like we had known each other for a thousand years I told Catherine she had been suspected of being an 'axe murderer'!!We decided at least this showed concern by the 'horsey one' whereas her family had been more than happy for her to meet a stranger. After leaving Spotlight we were in the car on our way to get coffee and a muffin and I received a text from SH wondering what I was up to,
my reply was 'in the car with the axe murderer'
his response 'stay calm I've called 000'
my reply 'thanks, you have passed the care factor test'
Well there were many many laughs after that exchange and I think Catherine will always be known as the 'axe murderer who wasn't' in this house.
I have just reread this and realised it is so not funny or entertaining for anyone perhaps other than Catherine and myself but this blog is to be a record to look back on and remember days gone by and I just know one day I will reread this and giggle all over again!!!!
