Brit mums live (day 1)

I have surprised myself! Turns out I can be a little (lot) shy!

I am here, mama owl and I worked out the journey really well, between us. 

I am sat at a table and feeling crazy lost! I don't know how to introduce myself, or here to go, or what to do!!!

This is not me.

Kirsty Allsop was awesome but, even though I have thought of a million things I would say to her, when it came to Q+A, I couldn't think of a thing. 

Now I'm listening in on a brand panel debate, it's fascinating. As a fairly new blogger, it's nice to know what is expected. I'm not really working with brands yet, but it's nice to know what's expected, for (maybe) future reference. far, all I'm thinking is.....I need coffee, or alcohol.

I wrote that earlier this afternoon, whilst sat in the main hall, it didn't get better for me.....

At this point I fell to pieces, I ended up in floods of tears in the toilets for approx 30 minutes!?
What the hell is wrong with me!?

This isn't me! I'm not scared, I don't know what I am! I keep bursting into tears!?

I hate the thought of spoiling the weekend for the amazing mama owl, but thankfully she has met people she knows well, and has listened to me, and gone for a drink/meal with other bloggers.

So as I will finish this saying, I am having a good time. I am not missing everyone as much as I thought I would.

I think I am just utterly overwhelmed!

I am relaxing a little now, having some time alone. Although I am still bursting into tears.

I am hoping it is tiredness, as little A chose last night to refuse any sleep!?

So, fingers crossed, I will sleep (and probably cry) tonight. the wake up,fresh faced, to enjoy another day.

One final note, big up the Brit mums butterflies, without who I wouldn't of made the whole day. 


  1. Oh Jo sweetheart, you will not be the only one who feels that way. Just be your own lovely self and you will be just fine. You've been looking forward to this for so long and with little A not sleeping, it has all just caught up with you. Have a big drink and a big sleep. Tomorrow is another day xxx

  2. I second what Nichola said ^^ I hope you feel better in the morning and can enjoy yourself. Enjoy the moment and concentrate on you for a change, take a big deep breath and relax x
