So, who's going to BritMums Live?

I brought my ticket a while back now, after kindly finding a lovely sponsor in the form of a company I really believe in and am more than happy to promote - Spatone

I feel so lucky to have found a sponsor and to hold a ticket for what is probably the best event for parent bloggers, but my god, there's a little demon inside my head that is making me beyond incredibly nervous and I can't shake it off.

After finding a sponsor, it took me so long to pluck up the courage to actually purchase the ticket, a good friend of mine and excellent blogger - Hayley from Sparkles and Stretchmarks helped me to find that courage and I thank her for that, as when I hit that 'purchase' button I did suddenly feel a huge sense of relief. But now I've gone all wobbly again - my legs have turned to jelly, in fact, forget the legs, the whole of my body has turned to jelly with nerves. And here I am typing this, rather than booking my train and hotel. 

I so wish to be as confident as probably most people are about such a silly thing. I want to be confident in myself and through away all the nerves and doubts and actually just get around to being excited. So many times I've thought about selling my ticket and paying my sponsor back through  sheer nerves but I'm not going to do it. I'm going to go.. I'm going to be brave and I'm going to hopefully enjoy myself and learn lots of new things about the big wide world of blogging!

So if you're going too and you want to help a nervous gal feel a little more comfortable please do come and say Hi. Here's just a little about me..

  1. I will be going and it's my 1st time too! I am in a hotel on my own too i don't think anyone else is staying at my one! I'm feeling quite scared too as I've never met any other bloggers in the flesh! xxx

  2. Looking forward to finally meeting you! You'll love it! I was so nervous last year so couldn't really enjoy it as much as I wanted to and I wish I hadn't have been as there really was no need at all. Everyone is so lovely xx

  3. Don't be nervous! I was a little the first time, but it quickly turned to excitement. And everyone is always so lovely and welcoming. Just go up to people and say hi. I remember being so intimidated to say hi to some of the big bloggers I really look up to, but everyone was lovely. I'll be sure to come say hi when I see you! x

  4. It's my first time too but excited at the same time. Look forward to hopefully seeing you there :)

  5. I remember the nerves my first time but everyone is so friendly! I will come and say hi when I see you x

  6. I'm not planning to go but it does sound fun! Enjoy!

  7. So glad you're coming! Just remember that everybody there is there to meet other bloggers and connect. It's a bunch of people but they all feel exactly like you do. So happy we'll be seeing you.

  8. I'm nervous too but the Irish in me tells me I'll be grand! We could start a conversation in an empty room! lol - See you there missus! And it's going to be such an amazing experience for us all! xx

  9. I wish I was going!!!! Would love to meet you all!! xxx

  10. Aww I'm glad you booked it - that rush you felt when you booked, I bet you`ll feel that again after you`ve been. But bigger!! So just think about that. Thats what i`m doing!

    I am super nervous too, but we'll get through it. And hey....I am so glad theres gonna be another tall person there! Every post like this I read I see that everyone is tiny and I was worried I'd look like a giant!!!! lol.


  11. I'm going, feeling very nervous too! :) x

  12. Will be lovely to meet you! 5'8, you're tall! I'm only 5'3! x

  13. Ooh, I'm still not sure whether to go or not... I'll be nearly 7 months pregnant then so I think I might spend the whole time looking for the nearest toilets!! xx

  14. don't be nervous, you will have a great time, everyone is lovely. See you there :)
