Celebrity Sightings @ The Beetle Shack

That's right- we had Brad and Ange visit The Beetle Shack this week. Well, the Brad and Ange of the blogging world anyway. Claire, Paddy and Lalie came to stay and it was truly delightful to have their company.

I have loved Claire's blog from the very first time I visited it. Filled with honest and genuine accounts of her everyday life, journey into motherhood and stories of raising her first daughter, Lalie. She writes with ease, has the style of a stylist (funny that) and is witty beyond words. Oh, and a total babe.






I've gotta say- these guys are even better in real life than they are in cyber land (i'm pretty sure Brad Pitt would be too but whatevs). We had such a fabulous time eating and drinking and chasing noisy children together. Dave and Paddy exchanged beard notes while Claire and I talked about politics in the middle east (okay, so it didn't go quite like that), the children played and slept and life was beautiful.

Thanks for coming dudes, and seriously- how great do you all look here ?!

    How lovely that you got to meet her in real life. She seems like such a great person on the blog. No doubt that she could only be even more beautiful in real life. And those photos of Tim - wow!
