|Chatting with my bestie the First Lady|
There was tea and coffee, with lots of water for us breastfeeders, along with mini chocolate canapes, strawberry shortcakes, carrot cake, finger sandwiches, cheese and figs, and even gluten-free sandwiches and cakes. I loved the china with the Irish emblem, the harp on it, seen below:

I found her warm and engaging, a real people person and a really elegant lady, very inspiring to be in her company!
|A fabulous end to the morning|
We stayed around chatting (and eating) for a while before catching a minibus back to our cars. The whole morning was a gorgeous experience, and I'd like to thank my La Leche League group Dublin East for including me and baby in this event.
It wasn't straight back to housework thankfully, that would have been a bummer. Instead I went out for lunch with my mom and my kids and we extended the glamour a little further. Though the dishwasher is calling me now, time for the apron and rubber gloves methinks.
Are you enjoying National Breastfeeding week?
