Ok, so we went to Pamper activite fit day in London!
Its started with the terible thought of dragging a buggy though London, but hey for a chance to have a free lunch, meet some mumsnetters, a celeb and get a gift pack. I decided to risk it. So one word of warning, always take a strong pair of arms with you if plannning to go inot London with a buggy and a heavy child, this for me came in the form of my lovely sister SGK skinny as she is, she is surprisingly strong We arrive late in suitable fashion and greeted by a very nice young man, and told upstairs in where we are (leave buggy downstairs) So walk inot room full of ladies, few in boden and take a seat. Now trying to work out who is a Mnetter and who isnt. Have to say everyone is friendly and we meet someone who is part of the pamper staff who tells us there is "12 Mnetters, 4 bloggers and about 4 other "real mums" LOL we had to ask how come we arent real mums (evil me)
There is a huge playmat for the kids, loads of toys and coppas amounts of tea and cakes (yummy). Kids had great fun on a large light mat, and my mad child spent a lot of time on it. We had to listen to a lady talk about the inners of a nappy and how this new version is better, but to be honest the only really way to prove it to me, as a mum is to give me some to try. they didnt disapoint, have come home with 2 packets of nappies, packet of wipes, a packet of changing mats and best of all a MN book
The food was nice enough, if not a little on the heavy side but nothign for the kids, but one lovely lady (not a mnetter either but a staff memember) ran out and brought cheese, ham, yghurts and cucumber for them, so was very impressed
Now there was a celeb there, Mel C who was very nice, and we had a great convo about being covered in baby sick and snot and she was good enough to have a pic done with my little one too. Also met the lovely Carrie, who was lovely and who i was very impressed to hear normally rides her bike to work and got to meet her lovely niece and nephew who were very yummy indeed.
Overall a great day, DD2 had a great time too.
BUT it is my true belief that we should have a badge for Mnetters as I spent have the time asking peoples names, which reply was "Im Sarah" yes but whats your "other name" LOL
We've (well, ds ) been using them for a few days. Haven't had any reactions or anything so far. Did have some leakage from a night nappy one morning though. (Think ds had weed in the night, and then done an extra wee in the morning when he woke up and before I had managed to get him changed).
