Blogger Meet Up || #CDFBLOGGERSTEA




On the morning of Sunday the 26th of October I headed down to Cardiff on the train to attend my first blogger meet up at Pettigrew Tea Rooms. I don't visit Cardiff often and managed to get myself lost, my phone battery died and I was half hour early walking around Cardiff in search of Pettigrew Tea Rooms, which I eventually found. First impression? Totally cute, like it's small, cosy but it's got a really nice old atmosphere around it. As one of the first to arrive I was quite happy to chat to the other few people who were there and get to know them and their blogs, whilst admiring the sweet way in which the tables were decorated with pretty floral tea cups.


Eventually everyone poured in and I saw some familiar faces, but mostly unfamiliar and unfortunately due to how shy I was, combined with tired it was difficult to socialise with those who weren't on the same table as me.


We saw the menus for tea and since I hadn't eaten breakfast or drank anything since I'd woken up I was gasping for a cup of tea by twelve and I chose the Breakfast Blend, which was absolutely delicious! I drank a whole pot of tea to myself! And then, the cakes came out....



Now these were scrumptious, I tried every single one and I could have eaten all of them all over again, even the ones I don't usually like, like Bara brith I really enjoyed. Everyone got to try everything once, and I think most of us were really full by the end. I really enjoyed chatting to everyone and then 2 pm came and we had to leave but not before Laura, Gemma and Chantele had handed out goody bags filled with these fantastic items. Huge thank you to the girls for making it a great meet up, I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
