This morning I took the familiar trek into Cardiff for a lovely afternoon tea meet at Pettigrew Tea Rooms organised by the lovely Laura, Gemma and Chantele

It was such a good, organised event. We each paid £10 for an enchanted cream tea which was exclusive to our event and absolutely delicious. We each got to try one of every item along with a lovely pot of tea, I opted for my usual white rosebuds with peony, as usual the cosy Pettigrew Tearooms didn't disappoint and absolutely everything was spot on, drinks, food and service. 

As if the food and the company weren't good enough we were each given an amazing, jam packed goody bag at the end of the event. I honestly am a little overwhelmed by the contents of mine, so much more than I ever expected! 

I'm not quite sure exactly what came from where but a little note inside my bag tells me that the Twitter handles for the event sponsors are : 

@Argos_Online, @GreenPeopleUK, @misspatisserie, @movedancewear, @dotcomgiftshop, @bykirsty, @stkittsherbery, @fever_london, @marksandspencer and @CrabtreeUK. 

Thank you all so much especially to Argos for my camera, wow. Along with providing items for the bags Argos gave us a £5 gift voucher if we bought along an old toy to donate to Barnardos and have also given us the opportunity to win £250 to spend on children's Christmas presents via their Christmas Wishlist app which is an absolutely fantastic app, at the grand old age of 29 I love playing with it so I can imagine that kids will go crazy for it! I'm keeping my fingers firmly crossed for that prize, my niece & nephew will think I'm the best auntie ever if I win!
