Wellington bloggers’ meet-up, again

4 Mar

So, turns out we’re a social bunch of sewers here in the arts and creativity capital of New Zealand. (It’s the real capital too, but that’s boring.) After our first meet-up, a regular meet-up seems to have made its way onto our calendars. I missed meet-up number two but I got to number three. Which was awesome.

We met at the Wellington Museum of City and Sea, an amazing museum. In this instance although there was talk of exploring the museum, we never made it out of the café!  There was far too much to talk about! Not to mention coffees to drink, snacks to nibble, dresses to admire, and did I mention the talking?  It’s a real privilege that these two hobbies, sewing and blogs, have helped me meet such engaging and enjoyable women and I look forward to many more meet-ups.

Luckily the café was themed around Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation and had replicas of the crown jewels on display so we got a wee taste of history over our flat whites, cappuccinos  and hot chocolates. Due to my still unresolved shitty-camera-situation, I didn’t take any snaps. But luckily we didn’t really need to as the café had kindly provided a camera so we could get some pictures of us with the visiting royals who had come to escort the jewels.

Looking our very best for the royals

That gosh darn queen though! All that power has gone to her head and once Phil wasn’t watching she thought she could get away with a cheeky bum pinch. Well, what can I say, at least she has taste in bums.

Oh my! The Queen got fresh!

      Corruption from power gets them all in the end.

      (And the “in the end” wasn’t even a deliberate pun… but now that I’ve thought of it it has to stay!)
