Before long Nikki and Caroline brought us together to explain the running of the night and we soon started the first of two rounds of speed-friending. We were grouped first by location and then by age of child, and had four minutes each with six Mums. Time flew over and having only a snapshot with each woman left you keen to chat more during the breaks and at the end of the night. You secretly marked your score sheet at the end and ticked the names of those who you would like to see again. A couple of days after the event we received the contact details of our 'matches' via email.
The event was held at the Library Bar in Durham, and we had a selection of juices, hot food and nachos. At the end of the night we received a goody bag - who doesn't love a goody bag! It had a copy of locally produced parent magazine Scrummy Mummies and a marshmallow snowman (you can look out for the Pop-Up Mums at the Christmas Markets, as they promote their events).
