Macmillan Coffee Morning with the South Wales Parent Bloggers

Yesterday I was invited along to Parc Play, Cardiff, with several other local parent bloggers for a Macmillan Coffee Morning. I'm a huge supporter of coffee mornings, what's not to love about getting together with friends, eating cake and raising money for a great charity?

Macmillan coffee morning with the south wales parent bloggers

We're very lucky as we have a fabulous blogging network in South Wales, we are all there to support each other and always welcome new bloggers into the mix with open arms. Unfortunately, not everyone could make the meet yesterday, but there were still seven of us in total. From left to right on the photo : Kate from Hippy Christian Mum, Cathryn from Cardiff Mummy Says, Sally from Teddy Bears and Cardigans, Alina from We Made This Life, Kerry from All About A Mini Norris and me. Heledd from Yummy Blogger also came along a little after this photo was taken.

Marks & Spencer kindly provided us with a huge selection of cakes. I got a little lost on my way hence the photos of half eaten cakes! The cakes were delicious and I can see why everyone was eager to get their hands on them!

The coffee morning, organised by Cathryn of Cardiff Mummy Says, was held at Parc Play, Cardiff. I don't tend to take Aria to many soft play places as she isn't walking yet so can't really do a lot at them. She had a little go in the toddler area, she particularly enjoyed exploring the tunnels but quickly got bored, she much prefers to sit with the adults, especially when there is cake involved! She quickly made friends with Kerry's youngest daughter, Ophelia.

Thanks to Cathryn for organising, Parc Play for hosting and Marks & Spencer for the cakes - we raised a total of £30 which isn't bad at all for just seven people.
