I’m pleased to announce that at 1.39am on Saturday 24th October 2009, baby Max was born, to “over the moon” parents Hapi and Neil, two citysocializers who first met each other, and started out as friends, at The Morpeth Arms on a “Sunday lunch & Tate Britain” Social a few years ago.
Baby is healthy and well and oh so cute, mum is also well, and dad looks like he’s on cloud nine too! Being the dedicated citysocializer that she is, just 11 hours after giving birth, Hapi texted me to let me know the good news – what a trooper!
Having spoken to her yesterday, we were just reminiscing about when she first joined citysocializer, walking into the pub looking really nervous and really unsure about joining, having (by random chance) heard an interview I did on BBC London about the network. Spookily enough, Neil was the only other person I had met who also joined up after hearing the same interview on BBC London – so perhaps there is such a thing as fate.
Or perhaps the secret is citysocializer’s attitude to meeting new people – laid-back, stress-free and platonic so you can just be yourself, have fun making friends…. and then who knows what might happen
Good luck to Hapi and Neil and welcome to the world Max!
