Twinings sponsored the event so we drank out of pretty teacups and used spoons that went missing in great numbers by the end. #spoongate
Yep, blurry.. I was talking.
I have to make special mention of the girls, from 'Something Gorgeous', and Lou, from 'Louwink', Fiona, from 'Lilyfield Life', and darling Jules, from 'One Pink Chair' who sat at my table with me and Katrina and my gorgeous cousin Marina, from 'Alexandria Emporium'. We were pretty chuffed with our table and giggled like school girls. I have a severe headache this morning, from giggling? from excitement? from talking my lungs out?... or it could be the red wine I drank with 'the food bloggers' last night... but that's the next paragraph or so!
I attended Katrina's cracking session on Blog Design (but of course!)... and took notes for her, for the Wordpress Blog she is designing for me... just in case she forgets her own stuff. Katrina will be summarising her session on her bloggy I'm sure.
I tried to be all creative and took photos of the ceiling with my iphone.
Lunch was seriously good. I ate for two. You never know when your next meal will be.....
....although I did know I was going out for dinner... but momentarily forgot.
Yep, looks like all we did was eat our way through the day. True. The table descended into 'half eaten cake, empty creme brulee cup chaos'.
Some of the missing spoons were found hiding in vats of cream, used for the scones 6 hours prior. #spoongate
The day highlight was heading off to 'Pony' in 'The Rocks' with the foodie bloggers and savouring the most delicious tapas I have had (big statement but true). I even met another 'Ex-Dietitian' like myself...much excitement.... one who has moved from Dietetics... to blogging about food, interiors and 'lovely things'. I am not the only Dietitian who 'crossed over'! A special thank you to Catherine Saxelby from 'FoodWatch' ('Australia's Leading Dietitian'), Natalie, from 'Eat Read Love' (gorgeous blog!.. head over... pronto... well, after I finish here) and Hannah, recently graduated Dietitan (@hancgilbert on twitter... we're talking her into a blog).... for inviting me to your soiree! We were loud and very appreciative of the morsels that passed out lips. It was a true gastronomical experience......every bite, 'a taste sensation'.
I have a headache.
