Off to Blogopolis!

In the morning, Sean and I will be heading out to Nuffnang Blogopolis 2012.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend last years, not for lack of wanting to either, I was just too sick at 1 month pregnant to go and had to eat the cost of my flights and accommodation. Thankfully I was able to pass on my ticket to Mummycino, who herself was ready to give birth any day. But nothing will stop me this year!

We have to be out the door at 7am, which for me means getting up at 5:30-6am and showering quickly then feeding the baby before bundling into the car. Originally I had planned on catching the train and using that time for a feed but there’s track work on our line, so car it is.

I am looking forward to meeting those who’s blogs I’ve been reading for the past few years and been tweeting with on occasion. I will be the tired mummy with the 4 month old baby sporting an awesome ginger mullet (that’s him to the side). So if you spot me, please don’t be afraid of saying hi, I don’t bite and would welcome the distraction if the baby’s playing up.

There are lots of posts about what and what not to take to Blogopolis. Which has been great for me as a Blogopolis virgin, so here’s my list:

  • 1 x 4 month old baby – apologies in advance to those who aren’t too fond of wee humans, he is breastfed so I can’t really leave him home with his Dad. I will try and keep him quiet, he will probably think it’s Christmas getting snuggled all day, he hates being put down!
  • nappy bag and assorted baby stuff
  • mountain buggy – for when my arms fail
  • baby carrier – for when the pram doesn’t work
  • tickets, copy of the schedule & parking pass
  • ipad and charger
  • phone and charger
  • camera
  • business cards
  • notepad and pens – 4 should be enough right?
  • muesli bars
  • bottle of water
  • wifi hotspot

I haven’t had time to get my hair done specially, besides it’s recovering from the haircuts from hell a few weeks back. Long story short, first haircut with my usual hairdresser, ended up being lopsided/different lengths. The repair haircut for that ended up with my hair being layered extremely short. Needless to say, it now looks like a cross between a helmet and a mullet as Adam is quite happy to inform me multiple times a day. The best I can do is blowdry the crap out of it and pray.

A lot of bloggers seem to be spending a lot of time planning their outfits. I’ll just be in a pair of jeans, my black boots and a black breastfeeding top. My wardrobe options are seriously diminished whilst feeding. Might team it with a green jacket or a cardi, undecided on that front. Either way, it won’t be flash or amazing, just comfy and practical for juggling my little monster.

Anyhow, time for bed. See you all there!
