Big Thank to Britmums

BritmumsliveI just wanted to say a massive thank you to Britmums for the amazing couple of days I had at Britmums Live. It was a truly, all round, wonderful experience this year, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were so many great parts but I’ve tried to identify those that I really appreciated the most.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet up with other bloggers , people that normally I connect with through a screen, it really was so wonderful to see these people in the flesh.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to spend two days with my blogging and adoption BFF @boysbehaviour. We did lots of planning and networking on behalf of The Adoption Social and it was great to be enthused together. Also those real life hugs are the best.

Thank you for creating a space for me to connect with new people and forge new friendships. I particularly loved meeting Earthmother who patiently listened as I talked too much about being an adoptive parent (might have had a couple of reds by this point). Then there was the lovely Caroline Fosbury who’s warmth captivated me and I felt compelled to hug her even though we’d just met. Sorry Caroline if that was a little awkward and good luck with your LIVE LAUGH LOVE FOR ELLA Campaign, if I can help please shout.

Thank you for providing the opportunity to meet a truly remarkable woman Camilla Batmanghelidjh from Kids Company. The fact that I got to speak to her and she gave me a hug completely overwhelmed me. Look out for lots of stuff to do with here amazing Kids Company Charity coming from here and The Adoption Social soon.

Thank you for creating a space for me to learn, learn and learn more about the remarkable world of blogging and social media. I particularly liked the sessions from Captured by Lucy on blog design and the Instagram session with Marte Marie Forsberg was so inspirational.  I felt like a massive sponge soaking it all in and I now feel fit to burst with motivation.

Thank you for inviting the marvelous and funny Katie Hill to host the awards ceremony, which even though we didn’t win was a fun and emotional event.

On that note I’d best thank you also for all the free wine I drank, great sponsors Lindeman’s and Laithwaite’s , you did us proud there.

Oh and finally thanks for the tiara my oldest son looks very fetching in it.

I’m sure there is plenty more but I’ve got so many things I want to blog, Instagram, pin, Facebook and create so that’s your lot.

    Ah – SO glad you enjoyed it! So many amazing and inspirational women, I’m still exhausted now – nothing like a week of juggling 2 kids to wake me up mind you! Was an honour to host the bibs and reward some fab women – and a few men! See you again xx

    And it was really lovely to see you again, although it was so brief this year – I wished I’d had more quality time with you….. I have done nothing all week except recover from last weekend. I’ve been so knackered. So glad you have come away feeling inspired – I really wished I’d attended Lucy’s session (heard it was great) and also the instagram one – feel I’ve missed a trick! X
