Meeting with other bloggers - again

Between a few bloggers we had the pleasure to meet again (last time in July).

Cergie/Marguerite” (Lucie), “HPY” (Hélène) and I met at “L6” (Lyliane)’s place, in Normandy. The « excuse » was to celebrate Lyliane’s birthday.

Lyliane had prepared our party seriously and we (including accompanying partners) spent a good part of last Saturday eating seafood (oysters, other shellfish, shrimps…), “Sauerkraut”, cheese (a lot of them), dessert… with adequate drinking before, during and after (except for the drivers of course). A typical French luncheon lasting a few hours! And we did talk blogging (not only)!

Blogging is nice and part of the pleasure is to meet with other bloggers! We will certainly meet again and with a bit of luck some others will join!

Great thanks to Lyliane for receiving us all so well!

Bonne journée et bises

hpy said...

Qui a bu le plus de champagne? Je ne sais pas, je n'ai pas compté les verres.

Peter said...

asiate:

Oh how jealous I feel !
I'm sure you had a wonderful time!
So - this is why you haven't had time to do your Xmas shopping: too busy having fun already LOL!

Comme je suis jalouse! Enfin, je suis sûre que vous vous êtes bien fait plaisir. Alors voilà pourquoi tu n'as pas eu le temps de faire tes courses de Noel (cf blog d'alice à Arradon) - tu es déja trop occupé à faire la fête !!!

Peter said...

nathalie:
So next time you will join?

Noushy Syah said...

lyliane said...

Merci Peter pour tes belles photos, tes gentils commentaires et surtout ta présence. Il y a encore à boire, donc il faudra tous revenir bientôt. Bises

Marguerite said...

Ton montage est très artistique et en montre juste assez
;o)
Pour donner envie à tout le monde de se joindre à nous au moins par la pensée...

Marguerite said...

Quant au nombre de verres, voyons, y avaient des verres à pied, des verre à bière, des flutes à champagne. Maintenant que j'y pense, c'est vrai que je ne les ai pas comptés...

Ash said...

Wow! Looks like you all had a wonderful time.
Bloggers ROCK!!!

krystyna said...

Have a Great Day!

oldmanlincoln said...

Nice times had by all. Neat post, Peter.

Peter said...

noushy:
As you say!

lyliane:
Ca aurait été difficile de vider toutes les bouteilles de ta maison, même avec la meilleure des volontés! Donc, à une autre fois! ... et encore une fois: MERCI! Bises.

marguerite:
Je suis content si tue es contente! Même si tu es bien plus jeune que moi, tu as quand' même l'âge de savoir compter? Devant nos assiettes: 5. Bises.

Peter said...

ash:
You should see Lucie, Hélène and Lyliane rocking!!

krystyna:
Nice to see you around, even if it's not yet Dec.22!

oldman:
Thanks!!

hpy said...

Rocking, yes! In a chair.

Olivier said...

beau montage photos pour une journée flash qui devait être très sympathique. J'espère être présent à la prochaine réunion des bloggeurs fous.

Pour revenir à ton commentaire, heureusement que dans la ville lumière, les illuminations de noël sont plus flashy qu'a Évry ;o))

Sonia said...

Hi Peter, thank you for your comment about Niemeyer. Sure, he is still active. Take a look on this news: Brazil's Niemeyer designs Spanish landmark as he turns 100.

Love the photos! Looks you all had a great time! That is great to meet blog friends! I would like to be there!

Matritensis said...

This one is one of the reasons for which I like to write in a blog, to meet interesting people

Ming the Merciless said...

Sounded like you had a great time.

Yes, meeting fellow bloggers is always fun, especially when there is food involved. :-)

Ex-Shammickite said...

Next time I want to be invited too! The only trouble is, I'm the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Oh well, one day.....
Glad you had such a lovely time with your blogfriends, and I'm so envious of you tasting all those wonderful French cheeses!

Cuckoo said...

Yes I saw it on HPY's blog along with a beautiful picture.

May you celebrate many more meets and be joined by others. I am so envy of you folks now.

isabella said...

Of the exquisite bouquet, decadent looking cake and the nice bottle displayed, I am mostly jealous of that crusty bread in the middle of the table!
And your company, bien sur!

Peter said...

hpy:
It's already something. As long as you can get the chair to move!

olivier:
O t'espérait déjà cette fois.

sonia:
You know the way to Paris!

Peter said...

matritensis:
I have now met a few. And you?

ming:
Food and something to drink (reasonably of course)!

ex-shammickite:
Shall we advise you about our next meeting? (You would most certainly be welcome, but the flight ticket may be at your expense!)

Matritensis said...

Yes me too Peter

Peter said...

cuckoo:
I would be happy to meet as many bloggers as possible, and you are certainy among them!

isabella:
Happy that you added "... and your company"!!

Peter said...

matritensis:
Nice! Anyone I know? (Or you may wish to keep it secret.)

Drama Div@ said...
