Hi Everyone – sorry for my lack of posts but things got rather hectic last week so while I was busy having lots of catch up’s I now have been left with lots to catch up on!
My week began with the Sydney Reed and GHA Gift Fairs in which not only did I get to look for lots of fabulous things but I also got to catch up with my wonderful blogging friends Katena, Sharnel and Tracey. We had all been trying to catch up for a while so it was wonderful to all sit down and have lunch together and walk the fair. While Tracey and I have met a few times before it was wonderful to meet Katena and Sharnel in real life after our regular online and phone chats – Katena joked that she needed to phone her husband to assure him that I wasn’t some crazed blogging nutter that was there to abduct her and take her off to my fantasy world!
After a great couple of days with the girls at the fair I had also another catch up during the week with one of my other long time blogging friends, Meredith who writes the blog Count It All Joy. Again we had been trying to catch up for what seems like months but every time we planned a date something seemed to happen. Meredith came over for coffee and bought not only the most decedent lemon meringue pie (sorry we ate it so fast that we didn’t take a photo!) but gifts for my kitchen – yes wonderful gadgets including one she blogged about here! We felt like old friends and were sure our paths have crossed many a time growing up – it really was such a treat to meet her and two of her lovely boys who do have real names and not the alias’ they go by when she writes about them!
So then it was on to Thursday in which I was hosting Sofia’s kindy class lunch at our house – 16 mums and 2 teachers – thankfully I didn’t have to provide all the food but did put out some yummy desserts seeing as sweets seem to be my thing.
The functions then got bigger as on Friday Mr A and I hosted the Year One Cocktail party in our home – 75 for cocktail style dinner this time. My friend and fellow class mum Bek put together a fabulous menu to serve to everyone and I put together a bit of a dessert table with loads of tasty treats – it was a big hit and had everyone talking all night.
So there was my week – lots of catching up, yummy food and great friends.
The weekend well that is another story as it involved a fabulous dessert table I put together for my gorgeous friend Natasha’s 4 year old son Tom – I will blog about it later in the week after I have done a bit more catching up on things at home!
So how was your week?
