Betsy and I are back from a wizzy weekend staying in trendy Hoxton (I am told this should be my homeland). We were up in London to attend CyberMummy and were sponsored by Mamas & Papas who made it possible for us to travel there and stay close by.
Not only did Mamas & Papas sort out our travel and accommodation but they sent Betsy a mean set of wheels to ride around in. I am rather smitten with the Urbo and will deliver a full report on Bambino Goodies once it has been put through its paces for a few weeks. As you can see above, Betsy was very comfortable snoozing in there when she wasn’t making smize at our friends.
And there were friends indeed. From hanging out in my hotel room with a sleeping baby to bringing gifts for my children; my online friends humbled me and made me realise just how much they add to my life. There were so many people I missed or barely managed a minute with that I was kicking myself back at the hotel. If I’m completely honest, the conference got in the way a tad! What I suggest is that we forget about events and just get together to share food and chat, the sooner the better.
I managed a little walk along the Columbia Road pushing the Urbo and pulling my suitcase. I was there early enough to pull this off as I’m told by Bob & Blossom that pushchairs are impossible once it gets into full swing. I indulged myself and slipped into Ryantown, which for those of you who know me well has long been a dream shopping destination. And while I could have come away with one of everything given unlimited funds, I bought a key which is now hanging near where I write. I hope every day.
