BritMums Live... EEEEEE!

Let me start by saying - OMG ALMOST TIME FOR BRITMUMS LIVE! Obvious statement is obvious. But EEEE!

I ummed and ahhed over whether or not to go. I completely chickened out last year even though the fabulous My Lovebumps and MelkshamMum tried to convince me otherwise at a little coffee morning we had, and then when I was at home reading all of the tweets and seeing the pictures I immediately regretted that decision. So despite my initial reservations, I thought YES! I AM GOING! and started saving up in earnest.

Then... The car. Oh the CAR! The bloody car!

Everything that could go wrong with that car, DID chuffing well go wrong. It spent weeks upon weeks in the garage. It's out now, but it still isn't right! So the money I had saved, I gave to the Mister towards sorting out the car. No Britmums for me.

However... A Fairy Blogmother - as I lovingly refer to her - heard of my plight, and thanks to this wonderful, generous, amazing woman, I shall go to the ball! I couldn't be more grateful, you know who you are & THANK YOU for doing this for me. It means so much! Thank you xx

Now it is only weeks away and I am starting to finalise plans and see what is on the BML agenda. Thanks to Ojo's World - my #BML roomie, travel buddy and cousin-in-law - I will make it there in one piece (scary London underground!) and have somewhere to sleep as she has booked up the accommodation and made all of our transport arrangements, so far so good! I just need to make sure I don't look like a tramp and make an effort to join in rather than stand there staring nervously at everyone.

A couple of things about me. I am shy. I will probably be too nervous to approach you though I will make an effort to because frankly I need to get over it, I am thirty years old fgs. I will probably make a beeline for the butterflies, although that will also be because I can't wait to meet Mich (aka Mummy From The Heart).

I do my best not to stand out, but if you're looking for me - I'm 5'10 tall, I have dark almost waist length hair, black-rimmed glasses and I'll probably be wearing a maxi dress or jeans and a t-shirt and looking terrified.

Approach without caution, I am not scary just scared & I'd love to talk to you!


  1. A lovely, lovely post, you sound sooooooo human!! Good luck.

  2. Fab post!! You'll be fine. I wish I could go but not this time unfortunately, maybe next time! I expect lots of pics, lol. xx

  3. See you there! I'm shy too, I think a lot of us are. I'm not very good at approaching people, but there are so many people I'm dying to meet, I'm going to make a real effort. Can't believe it's only two weeks away, I'm so excited!

  4. I'm really looking forward to meeting you, although am equally shy, but maybe between we can attempt to overcome it and speak to one another :)x

  5. Come and find me and give me ahug. You'll be great!!

  6. would you believe, all my bravado, as it gets closer........BRICKING IT!! I will get you have to get me in! xx

  7. I think we are all scared deep down, it's just some show it more than others! I'm quite outgoing when approached but too shy to do the approaching! Will hopefully meet you there and we can stand in a corner together :-) x

  8. I'll look out for you - we're both tall so we can spot each other over everyone else's heads!

  9. Will keep an eye out for you missus -it's going to be great - and don't tell anyone but I too am very shy x

  10. Loved reading your post! I'm really looking forward to BritMums Live - sure you are too - looks like it will be a great event.
    If you see me around please say hello as I'd love to meet you IRL :)

    Best wishes
