The #CTMeetUp

On Saturday I left Keiden for the longest amount of time I've ever left him, six hours*. And it was all to attend the #CTMeetUp.

I got a lift with Elle Kay. She was very patient about my worry that we wouldn't be able to find parking because of the rugby, so we were a smidge early. But some ice cream from The Creamery helped us pass the time in style :)

Before we got to the talks, and Cindy donning her Oprah persona there was lots and lots catching up with folks you know and meeting new people. And while all all of the socialising was happening everyone got a choice of either a hand or shoulder massage from ladies from the Rain Africa spa at The Glen.

It's really silly, but I had forgotten just how much a social creature I am. It was amazing to get to talk to lots of people about different things. And meeting those whose blogs I've recently started reading in person was just great. Being able to talk to and meet someone who you feel you know, and find out that the personality you encounter in their online selves is the same, makes me feel that not alone. We're all just a bunch of weirdos who thanks to the internet found other people just like us.

I'm not the best at taking photos, and it didn't occur to me to take a photo of all the lovely treats in the goodie bag. But I do have those below.

My 3 favourite items in the goodie bag: a Zana pouch, Rain lotion and Romeo Foxtrot bracelet.

My dice and character minis are very happy in their fancy-pants new home
I was a lucky fish and won a voucher for a signature full body massage at Ginkgo Spa, with an added voucher to giveaway on my blog! I'll be putting up the giveaway post tomorrow. Ideally, it'd make sense to review the spa and do the giveaway, but because the voucher is valid till the end of July, I'd much rather give the winner more time to get to use it.

Cindy, did a great job organising it. Thank you for taking the time to do so. Also thanks to all the sponsors for goodie bag treats:

And thanks to the prize sponsors too:

  1. YAY! Thank you for coming and for this post! I'm so jealous of you and your massage!!

    1. Nah, thank you...no event means no massage. You can enter too, I don't see why you couldn't.

  2. Sounds like a great afternoon. :)

    1. It really was. Getting to be super social is such fun for me.


Thanks for your comment :)
