This weekend I had a choice, the Isle of Wight Festival or the BMB get together at the Rainforest Cafe. The Pixies and Neil Young are perhaps my most favourite musical artists in the whole world ever. No choice there then, a free lunch it is. And I’m glad I went along too, after all, I can relive my youth via ITV 2, but I cant meet other like minded sorts via the television. Yet! oh, unless I enter some sort of panel show I suppose.
Silver Cross are the fab British company that sponsors British Mummy Bloggers, and generous they are with it. No crisps and cheap wine on offer here. A big stuff yourself, sod the diet, eatathon. With added storms, as it was in the Rainforest Cafe after all. Toddler boy doesn’t really like storms, so he was a bit traumatised every half hour. But you cant have everything and he loved his pizza and the wallet he got in his goody bag.
I also managed to blag the Doodle Highchair to review, I feel blessed. Ive been very lucky recently getting the Halo buggy. Or perhaps Ive developed a lot of front and pushiness in asking. I have to admit, since most people took the train, think I was also in the minority of people who could actually take it home. Slightly hindered by baby Fifi, I didn’t manage to chat to everyone, but I did meet Metropolitan Mum, Surprise Mum, Maternal Tales, Thames Valley Mum, Notes from Inside my Head, And One More Means Four, Part Mummy, Part Me, London Mum and Perfectly Happy Mum. Not to forget Daddacool, who I already know, but was good at balancing the babies. I apologise if Ive missed anyone! I’m still suffering baby brain.It was great to meet so many people there many of them feel like I already know, as Ive spent time reading their blogs. I also met Susanna head mummy blogger, hats off to her and Amy for organising such a great event.
I’m not good at talking to people I don’t know, it reminds me of cringe worthy university freshers week moments. However, everyone was friendly and chatty which was great. Thanks for being nice to me and making me feel part of it. Blogging is a special little world and I’m glad to be involved. To join British Mummy Bloggers click on the box at the bottom of the page.
