What’s it like at your school on Sports Day?
I was recently thrashed by several much fitter Mums at the 100 metres.
But I wasn’t trying very hard to win.
Well not really hard.
And they were younger than me.
Except for one.
It must have been my shoes.
They didn’t have any go-faster stripes on the side.
Children are embarrassed by their parents whatever they do, so thought I might as well conserve my energy for another day.
How did you do?
Had a better time of it earlier this week at an Absolutely Fabulous event held by Countrywives in Henley. We sat in the sun looking out over The Thames as the boats floated by. The Bluggers lunch, which I’m honoured to say was named after my cartoon of The Blug (a Blog Club rather than a Book Club). The elegant Annabel and Grace hosted the DElicious and slightly tipsy meal in such an elegant setting that a family of swans came to join us. Do have a peak at the photos.
Having missed meeting so many interesting bloggers at Britmums, it was great to catch up with not only our glamorous hostesses, but also the elegant and fascinating author Emma Clark Lam, Margottriesthegoodlife who writes the original and moreish blog of the same name, the wonderfully eccentric and deeply pink Backpacking Granny, and of course, Mrs Social Media herself, Alice from The Fairy Blogmother. I think we’re all looking forward to another bash as soon as possible!
