Blog stuff

Yesterday, we dodged internal thunder storms, tigers, elephants and gorillas, to meet the British Mummy Bloggers in the Rainforest Cafe.

Well not all of them, but many. I wish I'd got to speak to more mummies but it was nice to chat to those I did. Sparx and I even had a non-baby related chat - a rare thing these days. Now I have even more blogs to keep up with!

(I should mention it was a free lunch - yay for us. Silver Cross paid, and we had a look-see at their new products, but for me they will always be the makers of lovely carriage built prams, no matter how innovative they get. They are British, so do take a look.)

Wife of Bold is another new blog I discovered recently and she has tagged me. For this lovely rule of eights meme.

THE RULES ARE:
1) Mention the person who tagged you (done)

  4. Getting back into yoga
  5. Fulfilling my dream of hopping on my beautiful new bike to go wherever I like with grace and ease

Thanks for the tag but I've already done this one, love your answers, especially the Big O :)

Glad you had fun at the lunch, would have loved to have gone but way too far away for me.

Sparx said...

Hiya - lovely to meet you too - and a non-baby conversation, what a surprise :)

Very revealing answers - but I won't take up the tag I'm afraid because I have just done this one three posts ago here: http://notes-inside-my-head.blogspot.com/2009/06/tagged.html

Little Mummy and Sparx, sorry! Loved your answers though.

I have a goldfish memory at the Mo.

Yes, I may have over shared a little!
