For those of you that are not familiar with bloggers who work from home, it can be a totally isolating profession at times and often it can be weeks if not months or even years before you get the opportunity to meet other Bloggers.
I have been really fortunate in that I have visited lots of events and workshops and with a large amount of bloggers in Nottingham we do tend to meet up at local functions.
Over this last 2.5 years I have met lots of really lovely bloggers in passing that are spread across the country at other events that I had not yet got to know and so on hearing some of them were going to be in Nottingham this weekend gone .. I was first one to say I was gate crashing the meet up!
Last Friday I met the lovely Debs from Super Busy Mum who was first into Nottingham after flying over from Ireland. Joshua and I failed to win her over with Hash Browns however we had a really fab morning catching up which soon included the lovely Amy from In My Bubble when she arrived too.
Early afternoon Joshua and I returned home to have some time together and then it was time for me to get ready and head back out for an evening of food and great company!
After meeting back up with Debs and Amy I finally got to meet the really lovely Lucy from Mrs Bishops Bakes & Banter followed swiftly by Emma from Handbags to Chang bags who is also a Nottingham blogger and is so blooming lovely yet it was the first time I have met her too!
We headed to ASK Italian and the conversation flowed.
After food Lucy headed back with an SOS food parcel to the hotel for the blogger down, Jade from Late For Reality unfortunately had got all the way to Nottingham but during her shopping trip in the day was struck down with a migraine so had taken to bed in the hotel instead to recover, which was such a shame that I didn’t get to see her as each time we have met up in the past we haven’t had time to chat properly. (Next time Jade!)
After being the last 4 to leave the bar in the early hours of Saturday morning I can quite honestly say there was not many topics off the agenda and there was an awful lot of laughter …
It’s so lovely to make new friends … thanks ladies
