Amy from And1moremeans4(who will have to change the title again when she gives birth to the latest addition) had arranged for Silver Cross to sponsor a meet and greet at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, or MOSI to its friends.
I arrived on time and made my way up to the Loft restaurant where the meet was being held, and started looking for likely looking people. What do a group of bloggers look like? In fact, what is the term for a group of bloggers? A post of bloggers? A web? I don't know, but anyway I recognised Sandy Calico straightaway from her blog photo and so I knew I was in the right place.
It was a bit odd meeting people who were not completely unknown to me, but were in effect strangers. A bit like meeting a minor celebrity I imagine, you know details of their lives without ever having met.
We had a nice lunch and a natter before Phil and Larissa from Silver Cross gave us the low down on their new range of prams and soft toys. The soft toys were lovely, but I have to admit the prams were of little interest to me as I am thankfully past the baby stage.
I took a few photos and with permission from the individual bloggers I'm posting them on here. Unfortunately, I managed to delete some - don't know how or when - but I clearly remember taking some photos that are no longer on the camera. Sorry if you're not in these ones then.

Josie, Ant and Kai from Sleep Is For The Weak

Sandy from Baby Baby was there with her son Presley
Lindy from Squidgyboo was also there, as was Sally Whittle (Who's The Mummy) and her lovely daughter Flea.
It was great to meet everyone!
