Thank goodness the majority of the ladies (doesn’t that word annoy you) weren’t put off by the rain (read- sudden torrential downpour)!!
We got together at Fahrenheit in Edenvale because their food is pretty good and they have a lovely playground so its pretty kid friendly… and then it poured! We ended up inside at a looong table with nowhere for the kids to really play, which was a huge pity. Fahrenheit did manage to keep all our tabs separate though, despite initial hesitation, which was great!
Thanx to my braced ankle and my crutch, I didn’t get to mingle or take as many photographs as I normally would have 🙁 but I had a really good time.
Some time during the day- while chatting about the get together on Twitter- Wenchy declared it BoaDay since she’d never worn hers in public, and since I have 4 of them I was more than keen- so several of us had boas on at the lunch too! And there was even an attempt at organising name tags at one point!
So, lets’ get to the list shall we. In attendance yesterday were Sproutsmom and her son, KerryHaggard, Wenchy, ExMi, theJacksonfiles, Jenty and her two boys, Sleepy Jane, Pink Hair Girl and her kidlets, Laura-kim and her kidlets, queenofcomplex and her son, TotallyCooked, Zola237, MamaMeea with baby Jack and the bump, Jacki… and I just know I’ve left a couple of names off this list!
It was so awesome to see some familiar faces again, and to see some new faces belonging to bloggers I’ve read for a long time but never met before.
I baked a batch of chocolate cupcakes adorned with yellow butter icing and a green glacé cherry and they went down very well!
I managed to pretty much stick to my diet by only drinking whisky and water (which was so divine, I haven’t had it in ages) and by eating a green salad. Unfortunately the salad also had kiwi fruit in it and I forgot to tell them to leave off the salad dressing, but it was pretty good, and since my Glugster and I have been so strict about sticking to our diet, I’m sure the little bit of fruit I had won’t do too much damage.
Speaking of my Glugs, he took himself off to a nearby Dros to watch the rugby after dropping me off, and at about 5PM he came back to Fahrenheit where myself, theJacksonfiles, Wenchy & TotallyCooked were still gabbing, so he joined us for a couple of toots before we finally made our way home at about 8PM!
And you can find my pictures on my photo blog!
