…aka Allmumstalk 1st networking event…
I remember last Saturday vividly. Not because it wasn’t so long ago, but because for the very first time in almost two years I organised a networking event after having spent two nights completely awake for the silliest reason a mother can admit to herself: a super sugar high toddler (for which I’m partially guilty; it was worse as it was his very first contact with this sweet devil!). Although, I don’t believe this was the most terrible thing that have happened to me as my zombie mood took away all those nerve wracking kind of feelings and had no time to worry about what would happen if no one turned up or if the rain would spoil our plans (which eventually managed to meddle with our event affairs!). Yes, I was afraid that you, cool mums and joyful bundles, would get scared away by the forecast, but you did come and gave me a reason to smile…And thanks you, cool dads, for joining too!
Here are the photos the threatening clouds didn’t manage to spoil completely (because we, powerful mums who can face all sorts of dreadful situations from fierce tantrums to sugar high toddlers, didn’t allow the weather to stay in our way). A big thank you to Ania Pawleta, our amazing photographer who saved the day despite the grey cool air which didn’t give us much freedom to take the tiny humans around the beautiful Mudchute Farm and photograph them with the funky animal creatures. Next time I hope!
Furthermore, despite imperfect timings, a poorly functioning baby brain and ghastly eye circles, I think the event went pretty well. I have to thank everyone who participated in the raffle for the Radio Lollipop charity. All donations will go to Evelina Children’s Hospital (I must apologise I couldn’t project much during all that time I had with you, yet I hope you enjoyed yourselves and fingers crossed there will be a first Christmas event too)! After going though several blogging stages (which I only started fairly recently) from a complete online silence to a beautiful increase of parent followers, I decided it was high time for an Allmumstalk event. And what better occasion than celebrating with some Halloween treats and a gathering of spooky spirits, wicked witches and these merry fairies Ania managed to immortalise?
