Gearing up for Britmums Live 2012

21 Jun

Can you believe it, tomorrow is the big day… It’s Britmums Live and the BiB awards.

This week has gone by super fast and now I’m in a bit of a state trying to get myself ready (I’m not the most organised of bloggers). I realised yesterday that my cards haven’t arrived, so have been busy making my own only to realise I have no ink in my printer and no card to print on.

This means that early tomorrow morning following a trip to the Docters with my youngest, I’ll be doing a super mad dash to PC World before getting back home, printing my cards, cutting them out and finally setting off to my destination Travelodge on the city road where I’ve paid for early checkin. Lucky I’m only located in South London or I’d be a lot more nervious than I am now.

Talking of being disorganised, I still haven’t decided what I’m wearing. I did have one outfit in mind then suddenly remembered that this is a two day event so after preparing and making the kids dinner I’ll be dishing through the wardrobe for a couple of outfits ( sadly I’m having a fat day which never seems to help when trying on clothes)! I hear it’s going to rain so wellies and a rain mac sound much more appropriate.

With all this on the agenda, am I looking forward to tomorrow? Hell yes, very much so!

As some may know, I’m a finalist in the BiB awards for the most inspiring blog and the winners will be announced tomorrow night. There is some hot competition all being other great blogs I read so even if I don’t win I know I would have lost to a brilliant blogger worth losing to (if that makes sense). I’m just really thankful to have got this far.

I love how the BiBs will be held in conjunction with the Britmums Live conference and I just can’t wait to meet up with all my favourite bloggers, some I’ve met before and others i’m yet to engage with in the real world.

The schedule for this years event sounds awesome and I’m really looking forward to a number of the workshops and some of the speakers listed for this years event.

This isn’t my first big conference, I was lucky enough to win a ticket and obtain a sponsor for last years Cybermummy. Though despite having been blogging for a number of years, I knew very few parent bloggers and may have resembled something of a loner lol!

I have been lucky enough to meet many parent bloggers since then so hopefully this year won’t be the same. That’s why I think the Britmums Butterflies Is an awesome idea for any bloggers that feel like I did last year.

I’ve also bagged myself a lovely sponsor this year, Orchard Toys who have kindly covered my cost, so thank you guys.

Well, that’s enough from me, as you can see I have lots to organise, so I’ll best get on with it.

If your attend Britmums Live tomorrow then I will see you all there.

AND THE WINNER IS…

19 Feb

WOW I WON!

What a fantastic felling it is when you win something. I’m not taking about a win on the bingo although the money is wonderful! I’m taking about the felling you get when you win something for an achievement in something. That something takes work but work you enjoy as you fell it could be you that’s helping to make a difference’ Your helping others and at the same time you get this chance to express yourself and let it all come out. OK i should at lets fill you all in on what it is I’m rambling on about this time! Well i won! What? That’s not important! What is important is that the people that voted for me not only took the time to check out my blog but also felt it was me that should be the winner.

My blog’ This blog got down to the last 5 blogs in a public vote. Then I’m extremely proud to announce it went on to win. The bloggers competition was held and hosted by  the site Autism learning felt.  http://autismlearningfelt.blogspot.com  run and written by Tammy Lessick. My blog button is now featured on the Autism learning felt’s website in the sidebar for one month as my prize for winning the contest:) Thank you Tammy:)

I hope my blog has interested and helped others by me sharing my personal experiences within the world of the Autistic spectrum. I have got to know so many wonderful people through this blog. This alone has made the whole blogging experience a great one. Not only is it great when i get some really touching and uplifting comments but it’s even better when someone offers support or advice on something that I’m having trouble dealing with as they have been there lived it and have become to have a better understanding of the whole situation. 

As the blog has been going so well better then ever expected i have decided to create a website to link with the blog. Kinda funny i know as the website often comes before but that’s just me lol. 

So that’s it  I won and yes I’m proud’  that’s a fact! I’m me Claire Louise just a normal mommy, wife and friend with a huge goal in a small world! But if this blog brings awareness or comfort to just one person it’s one person more then there was ten miniutes before. That brings a smile to my face and I’m proud to admit that.
