After a couple of sunny days the rain has struck but it’s only drizzling so it could be worse. But yesterday when the sun shone I went to Stockholm, first to meet someone about work but also to meet Karen from Bake My Day! True to my Italian habits I managed to be late and assaulted complete strangers with the hope of finding karen but oh no, they just looked scared and scuttled rapidly away. After some time we managed to find each other, luckily they didn’t get fed up waiting so I could meet both Karen’s husband and her three sons who all were really nice, so nice that they went off to explore Stockholm while me and Karen had coffe and chatted and chatted. (I refuse to believe that they did it because they didn’t want to get bored, who could be bored by food bloggers who talk and gossip?) Anyway, I’m really happy I met Karen because she is an exquisite person, warm, funny and someone you can talk about everythings with. And she brought me wonderful gifts all the way from Holland! Cider-apple jelly, a beautful cup, cookies for my children and special Dutch baking spices as if it wasn’t enough to meet her in person! I like blogging, I have met quite a lot of bloggers by now and so far I have never been disappointed, they are always as I have perceived them to be on their blogs! I’m a bit curious to know if this is your experience too so please tell me!
