The ABBs 2016

image

Well what can I  say, it was one of most exciting days of my life! Okay maybe you have a more exciting life than me but the ABB has been one of the highlights of my year so far!
When was it? Saturday 11th June, Where? The Driver, 2-4 Wharfdale Road
London N19RY.

I could not go last year so this was my first attendance.
It was just amazing to put faces to the many bloggers I have been interacting with over the years.
Imagine my surprise meeting the Geoffle and discovering he has a purple beard! and Sasha has such brilliant taste in shoes, who knew Hugh was so welcoming a camera man, and that Ali was every bit a lovely as her blog suggests!
There were Bloggers from the four curves of the globe…. well okay Switzerland,Lichtenstein, Poland, Scotland, Ireland,Wales and and many and varied counties of England.

On arrival we received our name badges, and T-shirts if we had ordered them . Then we all stood around introducing ourselves we also had time to buy a drink then it was time for some awards, we also had a  talk from Automattic‘s very own Luca Sartoni which was very interesting and he answered our questions. Luca came all the way from Austria.
Then there were more awards , more chat more awards and food.
I met so many lovely people most of whom I had not met before so now I can visit lots of new blogs.
So many, many thanks to the committee for all your hard work to bring us this year’s successful Bloggers Bash and I am already looking forward to next year’s event!
Now some photos of decor, lampshades , and backs of heads!

    My word, you do like your lampshades. Glad you enjoyed it. And from the comments above, it looks like you’re spreading the word too, so next year will be even bigger and better!
