Newcastle Blogger Meetup @ Nan’s Dumpling Time {sponsored by Nuffnang}

Dumplngs!

It’s always good to catch up with bloggers, and I had the privilledge of orgranising a get-together with the Hunter Valley & Newcastle Bloggers last week, with Nuffnang spotting the cash for us to gorge on the best dumplings in Newcastle.

Pork Dumplings

The gorgeous people below made it along:
Kell from All Mum Said (that girl has some great giveaways!)
Lisa, formerly of “Madame Bipolar” and “Sawhole” fame &
Marissa who is Beautifully Organised!

John, Tammy, Kirsty, Bron and Denyse all had planned to be there, but with all the sickness going around (and a few injuries!) they couldn’t be there on the day :(

(next time guys!)

Duck Salad

The staff were incredibly patient with us waiting to see whether the stragglers would come or not, but then we got into the business of discussing life, blogging, and dumplings!

Chicken Dumplings

Pork and Chive dumplings

These pork and chive dumplings were everyone’s favourite!

Prawn Dumplings

I’m planning a couple more events this year – One a coffee meetup in October and a Newcastle Bloggers’ Xmas Party at the start of December! Join the Hunter Valley & Newcastle Bloggers FB group to stay up to date (we accept coasties too! :p)

Thanks again to Nuffnang for supporting this meet-up!

Planning out my week

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

How is this not a plan? I have a few trips to the Central Coast and Sydney for appointments, Lady Gaga, and the Good Food and Wine Show… and maybe even seeing Ms Glowless to boot :) Do some running and bootcamp in there, then fly to Hobart for the Speech Pathology Australia conference, armed with gloves, hats and scarves, and running shoes, to find my speechie mojo and to see the lovely Foale ladies :)

Sometimes you’re not expecting that you’ll just click with new people. To feel that immediate “they get me”.

But sometimes you do.

It was awesome to meet you, Glow xx

Lizosaurus – Saying what’s on my mind.

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Liz(osaurus) is amazing.

how flat is your cat?

She tells the government what she wants.

She’s giving away an inflatable dinosaur.

She loves cats.

She says other things we’re all thinking.

And she’s organising the Little Bloggy Blood Drive on October 8. Join us?

Shanalogic Bday gifts to myself!

Reckon she’d like me in my cats ears when giving blood? :p

Impromptu Bloggy Meetup – Nine Dragons Sydney

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

On my walk home from work yesterday, I discovered that Veronica was in town… after a few messages, it was decided that I was to head into the city to meet up with her and Anne for dinner :)

Meriton Serviced Apartments, Kent Street

First stop, the Meriton Apartments on Pitt, where Kellogg’s were putting up Veronica and a couple of other bloggers ahead of an event today. The penthouse suite, nothing less :p

Then we wandered down to Chinatown, past places I know, getting my Sydney bearings!!! :)

Nine Dragons

Nine Dragons was where we had dinner. I “needed” to have sang choy bau, so I was indulged ;) This was yum :)

Nine Dragons

We all went soup for dinner – mine the combination soup with rice noodles. It was nice, but I would have preferred to pay $10 rather than $20 for it!

Lovely night :) Anne offered me a lift home, which I took, and again, I remembered more landmarks and places on the way home :)
