How excited I was to get some of my fabulous mummy friends old and new together for the first yummy mummy brunch since school started back for the fall season. This time we started a bit later than our usual 10 am till 12 pm time, we met at 12 pm and finished at 2 pm. This seem to work better for every-one’s schedule and I did not feel as rushed as I did in the past. For all the new-comers to my blog, I host a yummy mummy brunch at least twice a month at my home, always during the week and when the kiddies are safe in school. The mums and I make or buy delicious food and I always make a brunch cocktail. The sole purpose for the brunch has always been to make new friends, network among each-other, and also to create a time where we never have to worry about baby-sitting, child-care for our little ones and just have some grown up fun.
Today the mum’s that attended the brunch were Michelle, Lorna, Ginee, Amanda, Anna, Laura, Marcie, Amanda,Lucie and Moi. It was such a wonderful time, the ladies brought the most delicious food items, we all helped prepare the table and without skipping a beat, reconnected after not seeing each-other for a long while. The new mums to the mix, fell right in place and it was a joy as always to connect these amazing women with each-other. The Pimms was a hit , as were the decadent desserts Lorna, Anna, Marcie and Laura made . We had such stimulating conversations and there were loads of laughter. I cannot wait to plan the next one in a few weeks, and I urge you all to try it yourselves, it is quite easy actually. Everyone brings a dish, less stress on the hostess…. picking a day when the kids are in school is a plus. I am able to work from home but for those who work outside the home, doing one after work can easily be planned, just hire a babysitter and split the cost with all the other mums invited. Make a room a play-space and have all the kids play there safe and sound with the baby-sitter while you ladies have a blast socializing. Let me know how it goes…. hope you enjoy my photo diary of how to make my bruschetta, Pimms and the yummy mummy brunch.
