I’m pretty excited that I’ve just bought myself tickets to attend Britmums. It has always been something that I have wanted to do but could never justify the expense of, but this year I’m throwing caution to the wind and using some of my blogging income to live a little and go. I’m crying inside as this means that my new camera and tattoo are being put on hold, again, and also really hoping that I can find a last minute sponsor (pretty please), but, for now at least, I have decided to sod it and pay for it myself.
I’m going along with friend and fellow Welsh family blogger Kerry which is a huge relief, as to be honest, London scares me. I get lost and it is just too busy and too confusing. Travelling and staying with Kerry has put me at ease and to be honest, I probably wouldn’t have bothered booking tickets if it wasn’t for finding a travel/room buddy. Kerry and I have attended several events together, including the fantastic Traverse Conference held in Cardiff earlier this year which is where the below photo was taken.
I’ve decided to join in with the Britmums linky and answer the suggested questions below :
My name: Leanne
- Relax and enjoy it – easier said than done – is there a bar??
- Take a portable phone charger, there is nothing worse than your battery dying when there is so much instagram-ing to be done, or even worse when there is a tweet to order bar, this happened to me at Traverse!
- Take business cards – if you don’t have any get some printed.
- Take a notebook and make notes throughout the day, you may think you’ll remember everything but you probably won’t.
