Today was a real pleasure as I got a chance to attend the second Mumsnet Blogfest. Last year was amazing, (was it really 12 months ago?) so I had high expectations for today.
The day started off well with a lovely walk to the station.
Before I knew it I had swapped my rural idyll for Kings Cross and couldn’t resist a quick look around the shops. First stop was Cath Kidston where I treated myself to a new cover for my iPad mini featuring her little birds print, a tin of Christmas mints and a roll of Happy Xmas! tape. They have some lovely Christmas products and it was really hard to limit myself to these!
Then it was on to Paperchase for a selection of Christmas postcards for swapping. I love their retro prints and they had lots to choose from.
After I had spent all my money it was on to Blogfest where I heard some amazing people talk, such as Lionel Shriver and AL Kennedy. Listening to them speak was definitely the high point of my day although all the sessions gave me lots of food for thought. I left before Jo Brand gave the closing keynote as I felt exhausted and was happy to go home after a lovely day out with my purchases and Blogfest goody bag
