Blog it for babies is to raise awareness and funds for Save the Children's Build it for Babies campaign.
Annie from Mammasaurus is travelling around the country this week attending blog events. Today she was in St Albans, just down the motorway from me.
Helen from Actually Mummy organised a free marquee at the Noke Thistle Hotel in Chiswell Green. Local businesses made donations to set up stalls. Jenny from Bake Yummy and Cheetahs in my Shoes created the official #blogitforbabies cupcake. Peanut and chocolate. Seriously delicious. There was also a bring and buy cake sale and a raffle. I got to meet some lovely people and catch up with a few old friends. We raised hundreds of pounds towards building a clinic in Bangladesh.
My highlight was taking part in the hour long Rock Choir session run by Abigail Smith. We learnt to sing, in three part harmony, 'Aint No Mountain High Enough' with actions. I LOVED IT.
Here's me, hiding unsuccessfully behind Annie, singing 'stop' with appropriate hand gestures.
And this is me chatting to Abigail afterwards.
I've since signed up for a taster session with the Milton Keynes Rock Choir. Exciting.
I had to leave before Annie was transformed into Justin Bieber. Can't wait to see the photographs from that makeover.
