Well on Thursday I am off to Malvern to spend Friday at the show and to meet up with at least 50 garden bloggers. I have had my usual attack of wondering whether I should just stay home. I'm always like this. If ever I am invited to a party I always have a period of feeling that I can't quite be bothered to go and casting about for excuses to stay home. Then I get over it, begin to quite look forward to it, go and invariably have a good time. I do actually love meeting people, like talking to people, am quite extrovert and chatty. I just sort of forget that when I am up here, hanging around in my jeans and t- shirt, dirt under my fingernails, head full of plants and dreams.
So now I am well and truly over party cold feet. I am hugely looking forward to seeing Zoe and Karen and to meeting so many people whose blogs and tweets I read. I am longing to get round the plant stands. I am quite excited by the whole idea of a couple of days somewhere else, and somewhere else devoted to gardening. How good is that? I have a list a mile long of people I hope to talk to and of plants I might buy (and a list even longer of things not to be seduced by that would not like it up here. My big resolution, I will not buy things that won't survive just because they murmur and flutter their lashes at me.).
Thanks to VP (Michelle) and patientgarden (Helen) for all the organising. You are stars.
Roll on Malvern.
