What a wonderful day full of great experiences
The CyberMummy 11 organisers had arranged a great selection of speakers. I learnt about writing from a published author, photography from an accomplished photographer, internet presence from a professional web developer and how to reach a blog-life-balance from a time management expert. I'm planning to put their helpful advice into practice so watch out for some changes to this blog :)
Whilst the talks were great this was shadowed by the inspirational bloggers I met, there really are some fabulous people out there, sharing some amazing life experiences. Keep it up ladies.
The fun has even continued today as I had the joy of delving into the Goodie Bags and wow were they a treat. Luxury Bath treats from Champney, Cars The Movie from Disney, Johnson's Baby Wipes and and and the list goes on, I'll be dishing out some of these treats to friends as there is simply too much for one family.
So all that is left to say is "where do I sign up for CyberMummy 12?"

There are some things which I am certainly not too proud to do
- the photo copying at work
- sniffing my baby’s bottom to see if there is anything I need to action
- re-cleaning tables in restaurants before we sit down as I know T will attempt to put the whole table in his mouth at some point over dinner. (I like to make sure it has seen antibacterial some point recently)
but most recently I added begging to the list and I don’t care because it came through.
As you know I took a bit of a cyber break when T was born. Just couldn’t fit blogging into my already chaotic world, but now T is 8 months old, I’m back at work and we are into a very good bedtime routine* I have a little more time on my hands and blogging was top of my list.
It was therefore only recently whilst blog-surfing that I discovered the Cyber Mummy conference taking place in London on 25th June, got very excited….went to register and was quickly deflated to discover it was sold out and there was a waiting list. There was nothing for it but to beg, offered to work at the event in exchange for a ticket; handing out badges, stewarding, anything which would mean I can go to a couple of the talks. I want to be a better blogger.
Well, I’ve just heard back from the organisers and
The lady from CyberMummy....she say yes
(insert own cheesy Spanish accent)
(apologies to anyone who wasnt in England in the '80s to experience the Del Monte ads)
I’m so excited.
Looking forward to meeting lots more yummy cyber mummies.
Are you going? Let me know…looking forward to meeting you
* clearly I have jinxed the next few nights by writing this

Hello, I'm British and I'm obsessed with the weather. It's been gloriously sunny here for weeks, it's been absolutely fabulous. But today the rain has come and I'm thrilled for 2 reasons
1. The waterbutt will get refilled, it was getting quite low and I've got quite an array of veg growing
2. I can finally wear my wellies. I bought these months ago and I've not had the chance to give them a test drive.
So bye for now, I'm taking T to the park so I can jump in puddles like a toddler.

I've been itching to get back to blogging for a while now. I've taken some time to make sure this is something I'm willing to commit to again and after hours of thought and deliberation the conclusion is - YES.
I've been up to so much that I want to share with you. There have been...county shows.....baking extravaganzas....crafting....and of course I need to introduce you properly to my little man.
So for now I will wave farewell and I'll see you back here very soon. Watch this space
