I’m not one to turn down the opportunity to meet new people and learn a new skill so when james from Joe Blogs Network invited me #bgomeetup, I took a gamble literally and headed to their head office.

Greeted with a glass of prosecco and a name badge, I was handed £30 of vouchers to exchange for chips to play at the roulette and black jack tables.

I bumped into Leighanne from Bump and beyond and we had a bit of a natter over what some may say too many glasses of prosecco, before we headed to gamble our money away ;).

Beginners luck really is a thing because by the time it came to the end I had doubled my money. If only I played with real money (one can wish.)

With a fuzzy head it was a delight to see the mountain of domino’s pizza arrive to soak up the bubbles. It also gave the perfect opportunity to mingle and take selfies with a life size cut out of Verne Troyer (mini me) and the inflatable dinosaur. We sat at a booth with the lovely Alice of Bblogger and Haydn of squibbvicious

There was also the opportunity to play the Jungle Trouble slot game with all the winnings on the night went to the the World Wildlife Foundation! Unfortunately I didn't get chance to play :(.

So upset I didn't get the chance to win him :( 

Smiles all round 

inviting me. Sorry the post is a little later than planned but thank you for an amazing night and to all the staff members who ensured not only mine and Leighanne’s glasses were topped up but who made it a fun and exciting night. 





  1. It was a great night and lovely to meet you towards the end of the night once the wine had banished my nerves of meeting so many new people - my magic 8 ball is making some serious life changing decisions for me! Stephen :o)

  2. BTW, I think I might win another prize for latest post about an event ever!
