The Second BlogGirls Lunch In Joburg

I know, I know. I mentioned it already, but I thought I’d mention it again when I put some photos up!
The June meet was held at Cool Runnings in Melville… I haven’t been there in absolutely forever! In fact I think the last time I was there was about 7 years ago for Bob Marley’s birthday party- but I don’t think it was in the same place… I could be wrong though as NOTHING in Melville looked familiar when I was there last Sunday!
Anyhoodle, there were five of us- Phillygirl (the brains behind this concept), EXMI (the brains behind the Bad Mommy Blog), my cousin Ydnic, the infamous Bridget, and of course- li’l ol’ moi!!!
At first there were just four of us and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves, and then Bridget arrived a tad late and surprised us all!
We really had good fun- and the conversation revolved mostly around blogging and parenting… so poor Phillygirl was a surrounded by moms with kidlets of varying ages regaling each other with horror stories and reminiscences!!
EXMI runs the place on Sundays and very kindly comped our first round of cocktails. Their cocktail menu is quite staggering and we were really spoilt for choice. We sampled vanilla mojitos, strawberry mojitos and a rainbow coloured thing called “feelin irie”!

Sadly, Sweets and Tamara couldn’t make it this time- and without Sweets with me there was really something strange about this bloggy-meet! They were both sorely missed… and I would have loved to see Tamara again especially as she had to leave the first BlogGirls lunch early.

Anyhoodle, there’s another one in a month’s time, and I’m really looking forward to it!

  3. Angel’s favourite past-time is getting lost on the way to the blog-girl lunch. Both map-book and GPS have failed to steer her in the right direction.

    What next? Chaffeur, of course!
