Where to start? The weather maybe, could it have been any worse? I guess it could have, but as Sooz, Wil and I mooched up to the appointed meeting place, I really wondered if anyone else was going to turn up because, myself, I was really starting to doubt the wisdom of leaving the house and the heater. And yet several minutes later we were joined by Lazy Cow and Stompergirl. Shortly followed by Miss Eagle, Girl Printer and Clementine's Shoes. My phone went and I explained that yes, we were sitting in the park. Shortly thereafter we were joined by TurningJapanese and Friperee. Containers of treats were produced and conversations covered crochet, blogging, photos, idleness, knitting, craft and many other things. It also began to feel like we were sitting in a cloud. We adjourned to the food court. Thankfully. Cameras were produced and as I was trying to set up a self timer shot (really hard because the LCD screen on my camera now only shows upside down) a fellow food court patron offered to take our picture.
Is Wil the cutest baby? He is such a charmer and has the most wicked smile which he was most generous with. Yes, it was a bit nerve wracking at first. I'm prone to pre-party jitters and did wonder afterwards if I may have put my foot in it a couple of times. Especially as conversations went in all directions and never quite got finished. But that's life, hey. And it was fun, yes indeed.
I know that Stompergirl , Clementine's Shoes sand Miss Eagle have also posted pictures and/or a re-cap. Lovely to meet you all!
