The Wellington Hand Mixer debrief

Last week we held a Hand Mixer in Wellington and it was fab. About 25 people came and went over the course of the evening, cupcakes, cake and drinkies were consumed, and much good conversation was had amongst Hand Mirror readers and writers. Yay!

Big massive thanks to Rebecca for doing most of the organising in Wellington, Karen for her able assistance, Anabel for making cupcakes even though she couldn't come, one of the Annas for making a cake and Sophia for icing it, NZUSA (my favourite national student body) for hosting, and another Anna and her whanau for coming along and helping me with my Wriggly-withdrawls.

Here are a few pix, sorry for the poor quality they were taken on a cellphone:

The historic array of badges NZUSA dredged up for us on women's issues.

Mmmmmm, cupcakes. Here they are up close. My attempts at cupcake pron are stymied by the substandard nature of the camera, but you get the idea.

It was great to meet new people and catch up with old friends too. We're definitely keen to have another one in Wellington later in the year.
