I was quite tired when I returned home after the Blognic (well, I had only come out of hospital two days before!) and today was pretty hectic, what with Mass in the morning, Adoration, Benediction, music practice and a wedding where I was singing Schubert's Ave Maria... As a result, I didn't quite manage to put up a post about yesterday's Blognic.
It was extremely good: lots of people turned up; for some it was just a flying visit - they popped in on the way home, just to say hallo. Others had made more of an effort: one couple had dropped in on their way back to Carlisle... from Lourdes!
I was delighted to meet up again with Fr. Mildew, Delia, Londiniensis and Dillydaydream. I was also very pleased to meet Red Maria: her blog comments in the past have demonstrated an incisive wit, and this was even more evident (and entertaining) in the flesh. Oliver Hayes made an appearance, and several of us did our best to convince him to blog more regularly. Sir Dan of the Blogosphere was there as well... along with many others.
It wouldn't have been a Blognic without His Hermeneuticalness and the indomitable (and charming) Fr. Z.
