The Britmum’s Live Post

I am  sat on the floor in the train station, shattered, with lots of bags including one which is wet and lots of information.

I have just left the Britmums Live conference, well an hour ago, I have navigated the tube and now I am willing the train to be here soon so I can get home and see the little ones.

I would not usually write sat on a public (cold) floor, it is out of my comfort zone.  I am more of a jimmy jams, glass of wine on the sofa kind of girl.  But, here I am, typing….

So then, Britmums Live? I don’t  know where to begin.

Maybe I should start at the beginning when I was leaving home on a train nervous, no scrap that, REALLY nervous, wondering whether I was doing to right thing going alone. I mean  everyone else would be going with someone right?!  I’ll miss my family, i’ll be sat in a corner on my own, cold, alone, isolated……… maybe I should give it a miss.

I could start with how I met some amazing people, some who I have chatted to lots online but never met before, some who were brand new to me and I even met someone in the loos who has been on the TV (yep they have to go sometimes too).

I could start with how I was brave and that I actually started conversations with other bloggers, and with brands about me as well as them, instead of the ‘yes, thank you, you’re lovely, bye’ and the running away because I am not a ‘proper blogger’ am I?!

I could start with with the amazing things I have learnt, talked about, bonded over and more.

But actually I will start here. With my thoughts right now. With the thoughts of reflection, the thoughts of me, my blog, my life.

IMG_5333I am a mum and I love it.
I am a wife and I love it.
I am a blogger and I love it.
I’m @moolboots on twitter and I love it!
I am a full time worker and I, well, y’know do it because i have to…..

But most of all I am just me.

So, initial thoughts on Britmums?

Wow, I’m me; I love to blog, I love the community, I love the fact we all got together and laughed, cried, sang, shared and supported.

Britmums live has given me space to collect myself, the blogging me and now is giving me a chance to reflect; to reflect on my online life and reflect on my ‘real’ life, but you know what?  It is a very fine line between the two…………………..

    Lovely post, i cant wait to hopefully go next year. It sounds like as well as being fun and learning useful stuff, it also gives people confidence by going on their own and just talking to new people, i think i could benefit from that too

    Sounds fab, I am so excited to be going next year. Katy is lovely, isn’t she. Met her at the Oxford meetup, chatting about books our kids like to read – surreal life of a blogger 🙂

    Lovely post. I found also that even though there was points I found hard or difficult – it did reaffirm a few things for me about myself. x
