Well I don't remember the last time I was with a group of people and time passed so fast! I found my way to Winchester a lot quicker than I expected, which was pleasant given the weather. This gave me time to drive round for a little while and find the closest parking area. It took me a little while to park the car as it was on a slight slope and I had trouble reversing, so I gave up and parked forwards. I wandered (carefully, my boots had slippery soles!) to the pub and planned to go straight to the bar and buy a drink first. Fortunately as I walked in and looked towards the back of the pub I could see a book on a table between two gentlemen and it was obvious it was being displayed, so I headed straight towards them. I was still quite nervous and Im sure I said something stupid about the book, introduced myself and wandered off to buy a drink. On my return a lovely younger guy had joined them, seeming even more nervous than me, so we all chatted about the weather and moved to another table when another couple arrived. The area they normally took over already had a couple of people in it, but by the time more people arrived there was space to move in and we all snuggled round a big table. Turned out the young guy, who didnt say very much, was a physicist of some description. I found him very cute so I hope he turns up again! A gentleman who had been very helpful via messaging at FetLife turned up, and a girl who had been replying to the munch thread was there, so I felt really comfortable. Everyone was amazing! I was so happy to be there with them. We all seem to agree on the bollocks that is living the 24/7 dream and although we all agree it would be lovely, there are other things in life that need taking care of... jobs... children... By the time I looked at my phone for a timecheck it was gone 11pm! People started making a move and I offered friendly guy a lift home as he lives in the same town as me and was going to take the train. We returned to my car and sure enough, it wasnt where I left it! It had slipped backwards a foot or two. Ooops! I had a lovely drive home and dropped off my new friend about 5 minutes away from my door, getting home myself just after midnight. I can only encourage people to go to munches if they havent done so before. It may take time to find the right munch though. I never felt this comfortable at the other munch I have attended, but this one suits me down to the ground!
