Were you one of the motley crue of Mumsnetters who descended up on Downing Street on Tuesday 19th March and were made to wait in the cold by the President of Malawi?

If you've blogged about your Downing Street Experience please can you add them to this thread cos I want to read them all and relive the most surreal night of my life so far.

Here is part one of mine The Downing Street Experience

Here's part 2 the pink neon sign in downing street reads...

And the concluding part which will detail in more depth the work of Street Work Edinburgh will follow really soon.

I think MMHQ have said that Aviva will donate £2 to the Railway Children for every blog post about this and for every comment, tweet and retweet (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong MMHQ). So please read the blogs and comment on them, then tweet about them and retweet too.

I just wandered over to start this thread if someone hadn't done so already, thank you borninastorm grin I am still writing mine as I got involved in having a toddler that won't go to bed and umm... me eating chips but will post mine shortly. It is the case that any comments on these blogs mean another £2 to Railway Children, so if any of the lovely, intelligent, caring and downright foxy MNbloggers out there could find 10 mins to comment on a couple then they will have the eternal love from myself and the other bloggers writing the posts. Ta! x

Thanks for clarifying that craftsonsea.
I totally understand the toddler not wanting to go to bed, I've got a 3 year old as well as the older 2 and he can be quite demanding, so much so that I get no writing done or anything else!
Tomorrow's another day.

Here are the links to my blogs about the event - I thought I had added them already so perhaps there is another thread somewhere?

It would be great if you lovely people could spare a few minutes to leave a comment and help @RailwayChildren raise some extra money for the fabulous work they do! :-)
