It’s actually a little bit ridiculous how behind I’ve got with blogging. Looking through my computer at all my pictures, I’m spotting pictures of things I did last year that I wanted to blog about ad never got round to! So I’m trying to catch up a little bit and share some of them on here. One of those things was a lovely blogger meet I went to back in December at John Lewis in Kingston. I love meeting other bloggers who live nearby and John Lewis always organise fab local events which I really enjoy going to.
This was a lovely informal meet with a few bloggers, most of whom I’ve met before. We had a lovely meal in the Rosopomodoro restaurant which had recently opened in the Kingston store. The food was absolutely amazing and I’m going back next week to try it again and write a proper review. I can’t wait. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and looked particularly good decked out for Christmas, which feels like forever ago now!
It was great to drink some bubbles and chat about all things blogging with the other lovely ladies. The lovely Fay was also there, I love that my best friend is a blogger too! When you work from home it’s really nice to get together with other people who do the same thing as you and this was like a little work Christmas party for me. It was also my birthday that day and everyone made me feel really special. Weirdly I was at another John Lewis event on my birthday the year before, so I think it’s becoming a bit of a tradition!
One of my favourite departments in John Lewis is the haberdashery and during the meet we got the chance to sit down in the department and try a few craft activities and have a chat. Rather than choosing a sewing project like I usually would, I had a go with a quilling kit, which is so much harder than it looks! I still have the kit and I’m going to give it another go soon! Why I didn’t take any pictures at this point I don’t know (blame the Cava).
I was too busy having fun to take many pictures, but I really enjoyed the evening, and if you find yourself in Kingston I would definitely recommend a trip to John Lewis and Rossopomodoro, for a bit of shopping and a nice meal. Look out for my full review of Rossopomodoro in the next couple of weeks. I’ll also be attempting a big catch up on the blog so expect a lot of posts!
