We set off from Lincoln around 9am this morning to pick up my niece, Megan, from Belper. We then drove from Belper to Chesterfield and met up with some absolutely lovely bloggers at Dobbie’s 🙂

I was a little shy and didn’t really talk to many people but I did feel totally at ease with Jaime from The Oliver’s Madhouse 🙂 It was the first time we’d met in real life; we’ve been online friends for ages but even so, I surprised myself when I went and sat with her and some other lovely ladies after the hubby and kids abandoned me (ok, so he’d taken them to the toilets but still, I was all alone!) and I felt a bit of a numpty sat on my own!
I wish now I’d made more of an effort to introduce myself to some of the other bloggers and have a chat but small steps were made by me actually getting out of the house and turning up (you may have guessed, I’m quite shy!) so I’m proud of that 🙂
I was chatting to Jaime on Twitter this evening and I’ve decided to try and find a sponsor for Britmum’s Live next year. I’ve wanted to go every year since I started blogging but lack of funds and courage stopped me.
It’s now my mission to find a sponsor, and the courage, to travel all that way without the S.W.H. (super wonderful husband) for support!
I’d like to thank Katy and Laurence (I think she introduced him as Laurence….my memory is rubbish!) from Frank PR and Megan from Dobbie’s for such a really lovely afternoon. The picnic lunch was enjoyed by us all, the girls had a lovely time and it was great hearing more about Frank PR. Hopefully we’ll get to work together in the future.
