On Saturday where could you find 200ish bloggers all under one roof?
Of course at the Ibis hotel in London at the CyberMummy 2010 conference. What a fantastic weekend it was, I’m still recovering from all the fun & frolics today hence why Oli & I am having a PJ day. As I write this I’m sat in a sea of freebies; the first bag was given as soon as we registered. We then walked into a room where we were greeted with stands such as Kodak (I’m still gutted that I didn’t get either a cake or an underwater camera!), @Asda who had goodie bags filled with baby lotion, breast pads, nappy cream .. all the baby essentials. The lovely ladies at the Tommee Tippee stall gave me a nappy bin to take home with me – seriously want your man to change nappies then get one these, mine was fascinated by it! I may just have to write some reviews of the fabulous products I got my claws on.
Enough about the freebies.. what about the day itself? Why were we at CyberMummy? We were there to attend cyber labs, learn, socialize, network, eat, drink and have lots & lots of fun. I’m pretty sure I can say I achieved all of those things. It was simply overwhelming to meet the woman (and Tim ) who I’ve been exchanging tweets with/reading blogs of/exchanging comments & the odd email over the last couple of years.
The moment I walked into the room with Gayle who kindly gave me a lift, we were greeted with people who knew us, and we knew them without necessary meeting before.. You know what I mean!! The lovely Emma came running, and we were quick to exchange hugs.. strange how you’ve never met someone before, but it just feels like you’ve known them for years and it was the norm just to meet up like this.
Ok.. I’m babbling; I’m just going to go straight ahead and share some photos from the weekend. I wish I could have taken more, but my camera broke down on me and wanted to take photos in yellow! But if you wanted to check out some seriously cool photos from the likes of Jay and Liz then head over to the CyberMummy Flickr group that Liz set up.
