A couple of weekends ago I was invited to PizzaExpress for a mini blogger meet and great. I packed Squidge up in the car, programed my TomTom and hit the road. The meet up was in Preston and we arrived with time to spare. I struggled to find parking but finally found something, searched for money for the meter and realized I didn’t have any change. I asked someone if they had change for a £5, she didn’t but she gave me 50p. Great! I thanked her and headed to meet the other bloggers thinking I had an hour on the meter. I didn’t, I had 30 minutes and when I came out to feed the meter a £50 was waiting for me- joy!
Ok so back to the reason I went to Preston- FREE PIZZA!!! I had only ever been to PizzaExpress once before, dinner for a friend who was moving to Wales. When I arrived Sandy of Baby Baby was already there. We decided to wait a bit until the others arrived. Good think too as we didn’t see the waitress again for a good 30 minutes. Once everyone arrived we caught the waitresses attention and ordered our meal. PizzaExpress has a nice kids menu but I was surprised when the meal arrived- very kid unfriendly. My main gripe was that the drinks were adult sized and in very trendy glass cups. I was thinking greasy pizza and tall skinny glass of juice. I spent a lot of time watching out to make sure she didn’t have an accident. So now that I have my gripes out of the way I can concentrate on the good bits. The food was YUMMY!! I love a good thin crust pizza a PizzaExpress delivered on that front. I didn’t try the new Leggera just because I don’t eat salad at restaurants unless its a chicken ceasar salad- I know I’m weird!! I’m usually disappointed w/ restaurant food but I am happy to report that I left very satisfied.
I had a fantastic time meeting the other bloggers. Sally from Who’s the Mummy and her daughter Flea and Sandy from Baby Baby and her son Presley are really nice and friendly. I also met Yummy Mammy who was excited to share her good news- ex-husband had agreed to let her daughter move to England. So it was a bit of a celebration too.
