Yesterday I attended my first Blogger meet up and it was such good fun. We went down to London Zoo (which doesn’t seem to have that many animals btw!) to meet 30 other parent bloggers who belong to the British Mummy Blogger network and their families. It was sponsored by Proctor & Gamble and www.supersavvyme.com who laid on a very nice buffet and pavilion for us all to meet up in.
We all had our photo taken together and it was so lovely to meet so many people I’ve commented on and tweeted with in person. I got to meet my ‘Twitter Family’ as Paul and Miss L call them – Sandy Calico from Baby, Baby, Karin from Cafe Bebe, Emily from Maternal Tales, Sophie from Soph4Soph, Karen from Rubbish Diet, Nixdminx and Natalie from Bambino Goodies who has I swear one of the most adorable babies ever and is doing a guest post here this week. It was also great to catch up with my ‘Red Magazine’ partners in crime Susanna at A Modern Mother & Potty Mummy (btw check out her new blog look – I did it!) and have a great gossip with them too. I didn’t get to talk to everyone which was a real shame and I missed loads of people I would have loved to meet, but next time I promise I will.
The three of us then headed of with our lovely friends Sukilou and her family, to explore the Zoo. Which pretty much was us giggling and getting very wet and cold trying to find some animals who all seemed to be sensibly hidden somewhere warm (see the Merkat above in the heat lamp). I had the best day and I’d really like to thank everyone involved for organising it.
