Cambridge bloggers meet up

Saturday was the day of the Cambridge bloggers meet up and I dashed into town after parkrun to meet 16 fellow bloggers at Ta Bouche. There was a good mix of familiar faces from real life and twitter, including some visitors all the way from Southampton and the Isle of Wight.

Claire did an amazing job of organising the Cambridge meet up which was the second meet up planned with Rachel, Harriet and Stacie.

Everyone received an exciting goody bag containing lots of lovely treats. We received craft supplies from Crafty Creatives, lovely handmade treats from Ohnorachio, Claireabellemakes, Harriet Gray and Stacie Swift, a 10% discount from The Sheep Shop, a roll of washi tape from, a copy of Homemaker Magazine, a credit from, a sample of tea from Tea Pigs and some amazing smelling Lush soap. I was also the very lucky winner of the raffle prize of five Graze boxes, Yum!

After a long lunch and lots of chatting we headed on a mini tour of Cambridge.  I've never travelled Cambridge as a tourist before and I especially enjoyed our visit to the busker in a bin and a peek in to Trinity College.

I usually try to avoid Cambridge on Saturday afternoons but it was a beautiful sunny day and a fabulous way to spend an afternoon.

Thanks to Claire and all the lovely bloggers for a great day out!

    1. It was really great and we were so lucky it was sunny, although it was still cold enough for my toes to go numb :)

  3. You seem to be forever dashing into Cambridge after your park runs!!! Glad it was worth it.
