My Stalker

Yesterday, if I had know I was about to receive a visit from one of my most humorous of blog readers, I would have brushed my hair, donned my best Walking Dead T shirt and bought in a selection of Marks & Spencer Scotch eggs.
But I didn't.... And so after a few minutes sleep(prior to night shift last night) I got up to receive visitors looking like a fat, dishevelled old fart.
Jo from http://hestanesta.blogspot.co.uk/, was on a day trip to Wales from her delightful period cottage in Derbyshire, and as she is a bit of a giddy kipper , she decided to drop down to Trelawnyd to see if I was not just a figment of some old lady's imagination.
It was lovely to meet with her and her husband....I am just sorry I was not more hospitable.... Next time I will do a lot better than a gift of a large goose egg!

Me showing jo my " Bosoms" ( and my considerable gut) xx

  1. For one, it is really good that the UK is small geographically. You guys can visit each other all across :-)

    If she was your stalker, you would not be knowing about the visit!

  2. OMG - it's my pal Jo! Will be teasing her when we next meet up in a couple of weeks. ( And hopefully all the gossip you dare not print!)

  7. It's nice to pick up a stalker who you have never met before, isn't it? I had one a couple of weeks ago, but now she's on her way back to Berlin.

    1. We should have a blogger convention in Bath one day!

    2. Good idea. The place is now a 'Mecca' (I hope I can still say that) for Hen Parties, so is already set up for a bunch of people like us. Until fairly recently, the AGM for the Monster Raving Looney Party was at the Hilton, just down the road from me.

    3. Have it in October, as I may be visiting Bath or very near there around Oct. 16,17,18 etc. Did I mention that I need a lift to the airport after that? teehee.

  8. Lucky Jo! If I ever make it over again I will be stopping by. We were in Wales for 2 days the last visit but mostly in the Cardiff area and Anglesey for the ferry over to Ireland.....

    1. You are very welcome.... The road to Anglesey is only a few miles from us

      Delete
    2. I guess we took the ferry from Holyhead...but I also remember Angelsey.....yep I need to get back there!

  9. The only one's I've ever had, turned up on bikes. They were an English couple on holiday over here. I was a bit flummoxed, but they were very nice people (They were followers of my old, now defunct, blog).

    1. And they found you? Bloody hell they must have been super sleuths

  10. How delightful to have ones very own personal stalker that can pop in to check on you when out and about on a day trip. Love your shirt, John. xx

  11. Because we have a farm store here on the property I do see many of my blog fans in person, not such a big deal but when in Ireland last December I was approached by a local in Doolin, County Clare, I felt all ...you know...naked and exposed. A rather pleasant feeling. Love your big egg by the way

  12. I'd rather like to be described as a "giddy kipper".

    1. I will make a note of that!

  13. That sounds like a pleasant surprise! Good for you, Jo. John, if I ever get back to the UK I'll certainly give you enough warning so you can have scotch eggs on hand for me...

  14. Love the T-shirt; you should charge for visits in scotch eggs ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, well, I'm jealous now! I like this t-shirt better, anyway. If / When I ever make it to see your Bosoms, I shall be sure to call ahead It would be an ever-livin' shame to travel all that way and miss the opportunity to share a scotch egg with His Earlness.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours, LOL (ample bosoms of course).

    Never had a scotch egg, I'll have to google that.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love the surprise visit and I want that shirt my favorite color. If I ever get over to your side of the pond I will call and I will bring the scotched eggs !

    cheers, parsnip

  18. Jennifer Lopez dropped round to see me the other day too... which was nice.
    Come to think of it, I think it might have been at night before I woke up.
    I fully expect the 'red carpet' treatment when I drop round John.

  22. It had almost been Wales this year, instead of 1 month in London. But saw Trooping the Colour of the Welsh Guards, live.

  23. I'm so jealous, Jo.
    John - I was just thinking (I know, I know) Is there a local B & B that would offer discounts to Bosoms pilgrims? You could do holiday packages including tours of Trelawnyd's places of interest and tea with Auntie Glad. I'm planning on coming back over to Pembrokeshire at the end of the summer. I could tack on a couple of days for a pilgrimage up north, scotch egg in hand!

  24. How often has this happened to you? I'm a fairly new follower, and I recall an American couple recognizing you in Trelawnyd. You're almost famous. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. They were from Boston. In lincolnshirebut yes!

    ReplyDelete
  26. A "period cottage"? Surely only once a month. What kind of cottage is it at other times?

    ReplyDelete
  27. It seems to be in the air, John....Stew and Ed arrived by cruise ship to visit us...they didn't have to hire such an expensive mode of transportation, really!!

  28. Sounds like a lovely visit. A dear friend of mine and i want to hike the whole of Offa's Dyke--i'd love to meet you irl on our way to Prestatyn (or once we're done, we could track back to Trelanwyd).

  30. If I am ever in, near or around Trelawnyd, I'm not calling either, I'm just going to show up, so have the tea and the scotch eggs ready! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha. Exactly. But a goose egg is a lovely gift!
    Have a great week, John!

  32. You could be related - a Blog siser x

  33. The lovely Jo ... stalking ... I shall tease her when I see her next!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I see the T-shirt (that, readers note, I sloganized and had custom made for John) has shrunk in the wash! A cool wash is required!

    But it is nice to see you wearing something that hasn't yet had soil/egg/chicken droppings spilled all down it.

  35. I've got a stalker, but that's a whole other story.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aha, if you give away goose eggs to visiting blog friends then I can enter a boiled one when I turn up for The Flower Show :-) I'd better read the rules - maybe boiled eggs have to be hen eggs...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oops, this is what comes of using other people's computers. That's LMSG thinking about boiled eggs - under Kit-E's alias. Love Jeneane.

  38. I want your shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awk! All I had to do was just drop by? I guess I'm not that brave. (Maybe I'll be braver on my next rrip to Wales.) Love the t-shirt!
