The Britmums Live Aftermath!
Full of emotion and with a heart pounding this weekend I participated at the annual conference for bloggers Britmums Live!
Now sitting on my couch and writing I feel so tired I can barely move.
It was an weekend full of lots of new things to learn, meeting friends that I met in real life before and friends I met for the first time too. Oh and let’s not forget the goodies!
I end up leaving with like 5 bags from the conference!
I have to admit that I felt a bit overwhelmed though…and maybe a bit out of place…There were so many well known and successful bloggers there…plus VIP’s like Ruby Wax and Cherry Healey. I even met Andy Murray’s mum – Judy Murray. A Fantastic people indeed.
I did have a good time though and the room at the hotel was quite a treat!
It’s incredible how can a day full of workshops and meeting people can make me feel like I have a hangover. I wish I had some of the amazing proseco,wine and beer that was an offer but alcohol is not in the books for an expected mother so had to have lots of water and Welch’s cocktails-which by the way they were yummy!
My head is full of lots of food for thought right now and you will probably hear more about the conference in future posts. The Britmums lady did an amazing job organising the event for us bloggers.
Thanks you and I hope that I can attend next year with more confidence!

Really great to see you this weekend and I love the nice, neat baby bump you have already x
Neat bump?! You must be joking 🙂 I feel so big and heavy :
It was lovely to see you too and looking forward to have that lunch soon x

It was lovely to meet you this weekend. I must admit that I rather enjoyed the Welch’s mocktails, too!
Same for me hon. It was really lovely! I am going to use my vouchers soon 🙂
It was so nice to have you there, my BritMums experience would not have been the same without you!
Same for me. And thank you for your kind words. I am now feeling a little bit better about things because I saw your comment.
Glad you had a lovely time, I hope you left feeling more accepted? Hope to meet you next year!
Hm..a little bit i guess…
Wasn’t it wonderful but totally exhausting!! I missed quite a bit so didn’t get the full two days worth and have no idea how others kept going so full of energy. Hope you have a good rest this week and if you go next year I hope to get chance to say hi x
Hello and thank you for stopping by. Yes next year or next event for sure.
Never mind, next year I’ll be there too so you don’t feel so out of place as a non-British mum 🙂
Don’t get me wrong it was really nice. And i met wonderful friends there! Maybe it was just the fact that i am pregnant? I don’t know…
Hello! It was so lovely to meet you in person! You’re such a wram, friendly person! I hope you got home okay …. those goodie bags were so heavy!
It was really lovely to meet you too! The bags were heavy indeed but hubby waited for me and all was good 🙂 LOL
Was very lovely to see you AND your bump.
Wish I crashed with you (should have planned better) – we’d have had a giggle and it cost me £40 to get a cab anyway 🙁
Stupid me thought you were VERY confident – if I had realised I would have whizzed to your table at Pinterest, but I always think of you as very confident.
We must meet up some time with us both being Londoners.
Was great to hear about your future plans too.
Lovely to see you, Liska xxx
Was lovely to see you too. I wished you did crash with me LOL
Do i look that confident? Oh my…i guess is just the way i look and not how i feel…hm…
oh and i wasn’t at the Pinterest session by the way LOL!
And yes we should meet up soon!
From what I’ve read, so many people felt similarly overwhelmed. I was only there for the evening part on Friday, but I definitely wasn’t prepared for how overwhelming it would be when I stepped into that big room. I came away wishing I had made more of my time and been more confident to walk up to people I recognised. Next year perhaps!
