Real Life

My real life merged with my blog life this week as I went to Britmums Live. And what a show! From Carol Smiley looking AH-mazing and talking about female problems (down there) to taking part in a world record attempt to wrap the most mummies in 3 minutes (which we did – I have the medal to prove it), it was pretty spectacular.

Guinness World Record for most Mummies wrapped in 3 minutes! the List 42

But none of that could compare to meeting and hanging out with my blogging pals who have been writing up a storm all year. They’ve been making me laugh, cry, motivated, angry and every other emotion under the sun. So seeing old friends and making new ones was brilliant and where the real joy of Britmums Live is for me. I can’t mention everyone as this would be the world longest post but special mentions go to my roomie, Katie from Pouting in Heels – we chatted like school girls drinking wine out of mugs (I found glasses the next day!) – my cohost for The List, Aby from You Baby Me Mummy, and Amy from Mr and Mrs T plus Three.

Oh, but there are so many more people but you know who you are and I’ll be round to comment!

On Saturday we were out to celebrate the lovely Mirka’s (of #FitnessTuesday fame!) Birthday and it was so nice just to sit for a good couple of hours and properly catch up with some friends after the whirlwind of Britmums Live.

Other highlights include going to Halton Castle, which only opens its doors once a year!

15 Career Tips from Smart Women is an oldie but goodie and I never thought I could learn so much from a WWE wrestler, but this podcast interview with Triple H was a real highlight of my week!
