Wow, what a fab week it has been. It kicked off in Manchester on Saturday celebrating a friends 40th with drinks followed by gorgeous food in Neighbourhood. We were there so long chatting and supping champagne (courtesy of the birthday girls husband) we got asked to leave as we had hogged the table too long and the next booking was now running 30 minutes late. Oops!
Read The cocktail menu in Cloud 23. I started off with champagne tasters, followed by a fancy gin cocktail which I can’t remember the name of. I love the views of Manchester being up on the 23rd floor. When I’ve been before it’s always been at night so it was great to be there during daylight hours, and I can’t believe how busy it was. The afternoon tea looked delicious.
Watched I feel like I’ve barely had time to watch anything this week but I did head over to Mrs Cool Bananas blog to check out her Bibs post, and was treated to a video of some very special dance moves. If you haven’t already, it’ll be worth it!) Fab video lovely lady!
Heard Lots of amazing advice from some fabulous bloggers at Blog On MOSI. I loved the Photography session the most. Lucy from Capture By Lucy was so inspirational and I have spent the week obsessing about photography as a result. I also listened to Vanessa from HPMCQ who opened my eyes to the world of Photography Apps. So many I’d never heard of but do fantastic things to your photos. I fear I will lose hours of my life tinkering with photos, before and after taking them.
Made I’ve been a bit inspired this week and have tried to make more of an effort to give O some more exciting lunches. There’s only so many times I can give him boiled eggs and toast soldiers! So I made him up his own little Bento Baby lunch. Surprisingly it took less time than a normal lunch would make and he loved it.
Wore On Friday afternoon I had a mild panic that I had nothing to wear to the girlie afternoon on Sunday. Emergency shopping was needed!! I headed to M&S and Next on Friday afterwork, couldn’t find a thing I like. No panic I’ll pop into town Saturday morning, still left empty handed. As a last ditch attempt, when hubby took O to Rugbytots I hopped across to the shopping centre opposite and headed for New Look. I was chuffed to bits to find a lovely dusty pink top that was perfect to match a necklace I already own and these fab shoes.
And lastly…I couldn’t finish without mentioning what a wonderful day I had at Blog On on Sunday. I had been, quite frankly, terrified of going. It’s one thing chatting to people online but meeting them face to face is a very daunting thing. I had nothing at all to worry about, the other bloggers were lovely and I got to hang out with our very lovely host Morgana (butwhymummywhy) and the gorgeous Jenny (Let’s Talk Mommy lady). Thanks for being my dinner buddies ladies. I also had the honour to meet Lucy (Capture By Lucy), Katie (MummyDaddyMe), Collette (We’re Going On An Adventure), Hayley (Hayley From Home), Kerrie (Wife, Mum Student Bum) and Emma (Farmers Wife and Mummy), and lots of others that I’m running out of space to name.
The only downside is I’m now even more disappointed I can’t make Britmums!
