After a very nice and uninterrupted sleep till 6.15am a nice refreshing shower at The Hoxton we made our way to The Brewery again to grab some delicious breakfast.
Over one or maybe even 2 lassies (which are amazing little light yogurt like drinks) I meet the fabulous and funky (oh yeah those are only a few of the words I can describe her as) Ceri aka The Ginger Warrior I cannot wait to get stuck reading her blog if it’s anything like her quirky personality I will defiantly more then like it!
Then we went onto the morning opening speech of Benjamin Brooks-Dutton who blogs at Life as a Widower about the tragic loss of his beloved Wife and Mother to his then 2 year old son Jackson but also about bringing up Jackson and keeping her memories alive!
Ben’s touching and emotional speech made me cry and laugh all at once! I took home his book: It’s Not Raining Daddy. It’s Happy!” although i am currently not sure when i will have the energy to read it even writing about the book makes me teary.
Back at the Hub I mingled with various bloggers tried my luck with entering all the competitions (and WON! Woopee although only a little win I was the 100th tweet of the Wyndham Resorts Competition and got some yummy choc and a quirky bottle of (Austrian) wine!
There was more talks with loads of brands and interesting conversations and of course posing for funny Pictures you got to be in it to win it:
Dani (It Started with a Squish) and her adorable daughter Eleanor joined me and Jo in this cherrylishious funny picture we took at the Picota Summer Stall and Liz (The Hart of the Munchkin Patch) is the lovely Hula Girl (middle right).
In between that I attended the google + workshop (which is such a minefield to me but I think James Dearsley gave some very good advice to get me started (eventually).
Molly-May got spoiled by cuddles with some lovely bloggers after lunch and although I really wanted to visit the youtube workshop I somehow was too busy with her and didn’t make it in time.
Somehow right to the end of my stay a very special to me group of bloggers manage to get together:
(Bottom Picture( Left to right: Clare (Emmy’s Mummy) & Molly-May, Jen (My Mummy’s Pennies), Liz (The Hart of the Munchkin Patch), me, Jo (Sit Still Monkeys) and Carly (Mummy and the chunks).
It couldn’t have been a better ending and after a short cab drive to King’s Cross Station I only had a 40 min back to my cousins house to meet up with my gorgeous little boy (who had the time of his life with his auntie at Gullivers Land as you can see!)
So, what do I take away from BritMums Live 2014?
I want to find the answer to the much asked question of this weekend:
“What do you blog about?”
This is certainly something I am going to hopefully can answer soon once I found out myself I think I want to find my way/direction where my blog will go soon (more about this on a separate post in the near future).
Will I be going again?
Oh yes for sure!
Looked like you had a fab time. And with a baby in tow as well. V impressed with that.
The questions 'what do you blog about?' is a nightmare. Mine's parenting and life with my son, but I write about whatever takes me at the time.
