British Mummy Bloggers

I was fortunate enough to attend the British Mummy Blogger's lunch last week.  Having submitted my Christmas post for consideration, I was honoured to be selected to read my 'Christmas Carol'  to all attendees, which I managed almost without tears!  
This fantastic event was held at  St. Martin's in the Field Crypt in Trafalgar Square, which truly is a stunning venue.
I met some great Mummy Bloggers, too many to mention, oh OK then here are a few: Mummy's Little Monkey, Not a Notting Hill MummyKelly Cheesley, Liz Frazer.
This event was generously sponsored by Heinz, who spoilt us with a three course meal in which we were told we were to guess the secret ingredient... I did have visions of baked beans on toast, but no we had delicious turkey and stuffing AND the secret ingredient was Heinz tomato ketchup in the stuffing (phew!).  
When we left we EVEN got a fantastic goody bag from Muddy Puddles, who also attended the event.
There was a Secret Santa type opportunity to take home an early Christmas present, the idea was simple and worked really well.   We were to hand over a book of our choice, my chosen book was 'How to Walk in High Heels' by the fabulous fashionista Camilla Morton, wrapped with a note about why we enjoyed the book.  In return we took away a mystery book.  I opted for a  festively wrapped gift with a sprig of Christmas Tree.  It was certainly a good choice in fact a Booker Prize Winner 'Life of Pi' a fantasy adventure novel.  Ohhhh escape awaits me...
A HUGE thank you to Karin at Cafe Bebe, Susanna at A Modern Mother, and Jen of Jenography for all their hard work in making this fab event happen.
