my weekend

I loved the bloggers conference. Every last bit of it. It was like a big blanket- warm, inviting and inclusive. I arrived emotionally empty and left emotionally full. I didn't seem to do much other than sit on my bottom in cafes, eating and drinking, doing crochet and talking. And I loved it.

I feel encouraged and supported by a vibrant and energetic blogging community. And I am even more in love with New Zealand. We are a pretty fantastic bunch of people.

So, no fancy pants photos from me and very little news other than I frequented quite a few cafes. Oh Make cafe, I love every inch of you. I met some new brand new friends, in particular Lisa (Big Little), Tania (Tall Pipi) and Justyn (Dunia Duara). You girls are just lovely. But then we were all lovely.

And I got so loved and spoiled at the conference- but that needs to wait for another post as it's just that fabulous...

Some of the north of the Bombay crew (and Widgie- the honorary Aucklander!)
L-R Simone, Widgie, Kristy, Megs, Rachel, Jacks, Gail and moi.

I seriously love this woman, I think you can tell...
