The Minx, Sausage Monster and I have survived our first blog meet up with the very lovely Trashalou and her beautiful children Princess Curly Wurly and Babyman!! We even returned safe and sound to our respective homes and were not whisked off to some secret kidnappers' hideaway as predicted by our dear husbands :)
The children all got on straight away - much like their lovely mothers :) (that's us, by the way!) and helped by the beautiful Spring sunshine we had a great day out.
Trashy and I compared cameras and I learned some useful tips - I've only had my camera almost a year longer than her after all so how was I to know how the buttons work?
I've also learned a little bit of collagey type stuff in Photoshop Elements - there'll be no stopping me now :)
We have decided that we will meet up again but next time we won't be blogging about it in advance. The reason for this is that the Country Park was soooooooooooo full of folk - all obviously 'our readers' who had descended on the place in the hope of bumping into two famous bloggers - that's us, by the way :)
It had nothing to do with the fact that beautiful weather and half-term have coincided after a long grey Winter. If only you'd been there to witness them all staring and whispering and daring each other to ask for autographs..........
Mrs Trash is every bit as funny as she appears on her blog - Ha Ha ...not peculiar funny, and we found lots in common. Our boys were almost identically dressed and were unable to walk without picking up sticks with which to sword fight. Our girls were both pink and fluffy with a healthy dose of attitude and well developed eye-rolling skills when their silly mothers got toooooo embarassing.
I have to say a big Thank You Trashy for feeding my starving children so well. I underestimated their need for food today (at least you'd have thought so if you'd witnessed their vulture-like picnic behaviour!!) and Trashy's picnic looked much more appealing than ours :) I've never tasted such yummy homemade brownies and her Yummy chocolates really were yummy!!!
We have another picnic tomorrow as we're meeting friends at a local country park. I may have to get up very early to cook brownies and little bite-size pizzas a la Trashcan!!!!
Now I really should
