When it was suggested that I meet up with my blogging pals for a Bloggers Night In, I was more than a little nervous. But I needn’t have worried as genuinely they are the nicest bunch of people. Once I had committed to collecting two other blogging mum’s, there was no turning back as I would never want to leave them stranded.
So despite the clash with the boys yearly fencing competition I set off on what turned out to be a bit of an epic road trip. First stop Southampton, collection of my two passengers, The Life of Spicers and Fiona, Mummy’s Little Stars then off up the A34 to meet our lunch stop at Mary, Over 40 and Mum to One.
With road closures and detours lunch became a mid afternoon snack but with Mary at the helm we were soon at our destination in plenty of time for our bloggers night in. Thanks to our host Eileen, ET Speaks from Home for putting us up and setting out an amazing spread.
Welcomed by, Pippa, Red Rose Mummy, Jenny, The Brick Castle, Zoe, My Mummies World, Tami, Mummy of Two, Anna, In the Playroom the group was complete. Time to get the party started. With so much new food and drink to try, I found it a bit daunting but with Eileen at the helm we got tucked in. Starting with snacks like Pop chips and Ryvita thins, olives, dips with tenderstem brocoli. Cocktails, wine and shloer for the softies (Anna and I) We had Domino’s pizza, with Christmas gifts, cake fun and fantastic goodie-bags. Fun games like Who wants to be a millionaire, I can’t believe how many new products I have to try out over the next few weeks. But the best part was meeting my new friends, who now feel like old friends. All to soon it was time to get some rest before our Frankie and Benny’s breakfast and our trip home.
I had a lovely weekend in Birmingham, it was so nice to finally put faces to all my blogger friends and I hope it wont be too long before I meet up with them again.
This is such a nice picture, and I usually hate pictures with me in them, but genuinely they are a nice bunch of very inspiring ladies. Thank You all!
