After too many rainy August days it was great to have a sunny August morning to whizz along the M4 to meet two new friends who have supported us on Twitter as we’ve tried to publicise HookUp.
I lived in Newport as a teenager and used to meet my friends on the Market steps every Saturday morning – but that was many years ago and I was surprised by the modern entrance gracing the market now! I was going to meet Jon, of @thenewsagent, who had kindly agreed to stock a few copies of HookUp for us. We have got to know him quite well after all the retweets he has done for us on Twitter and it was great to meet him in person. He is a really friendly guy and we had a chat and a laugh in his bright and well-stocked shop – our books were soon up on the shelf!
I then went to say hello to another market trader who has followed us on Twitter, Naomi of @cakesandbakesE5 We had a great chat and I tried her scrummy cupcakes! After a few minutes along came Jon to take pics of us all – again we had a good laugh doing that!
So all in all a very pleasant and productive morning meeting genuine and interesting people who are happy to help others make a go of it.
I’m sure we’ll all meet up again! #hookedonhookup
