Thank you to Karen Ivey (@KarenIvey) for writing her account of our OT Curry Night in Brighton.
#OTalk #OTCurryNightBrighton #COT2014
Could we identify the fellow #OTalk tweeters as we hung around outside the Chilli Pickle in Brighton? Luckily OTs seem to have that innate sense of spotting an OT so we gradually gathered until the #OTalk crew arrived, led us inside and sorted out where everyone was sitting, we had so many extra people we had to have another table! Unusual and delicious food arrived at the table, personally delivered according to your menu choice! So much chat was going on, the wine and beer was flowing but definitely no tweeting. It was very interesting to meet people you had only chatted to before on Twitter. There were young and old, men and women, students, academics and even a Fellow! The OTs were from Mental Health, Social Care, Independent Practice, Education, Health, Forensic and Charitable Organisations – wow – could we be more diverse? I had a lovely time talking to my neighbour about our families 🙂 We also had some Lurkers and some Skeptics amongst us who will now perhaps be converted to join in a future #OTalk. Great evening! Thanks for organising Kirsty.
