Saying yes, opening doors #midsblogmeet

Say yes and you open doors to new things.

At least that's what I try and tell myself.  Sometimes saying no and doing the same thing is easy though, isn't it?

But yes, I said yes.  I'd love to go the the Midlands Blog Meet on 22nd Feb.  Husband said of course he'd have the kids all day.  Off I went.  New people and stuff.  Gulp!

Taking a deep breath, I walked in to The Malt Cross in Nottingham, to meet the very lovely Emma (@LivePeachy) and Kelly (@ToBecomeMum) who'd done a fantastic job of organising the event.

There was a room full of smiles, and new people who were all so friendly and welcoming.  My nerves vanished very quickly!

A carefully planned and perfect itinerary for the day included some wonderful competitions, demonstrations from two lovely ladies at The Body Shop, general chit chat and a yummy lunch.

I met some very lovely people, and now have some brilliant new blogs to follow.  It was wonderful to be in a room of people with so much in common.

And we even got a wonderful goody bag, packed with sweets from Swizzels Matlow, Weleda samples, a cookery book from Neff, a chocolate mould from Baked By Me and even a very gorgeous cupcake baked by Emma herself.

Saying yes was absolutely the right thing to do.... thank you Emma and Kelly for organising such a fabulous event.  I'll definitely be back next time!


  1. Well done for saying yes :)
    It looks like a very lovely day! x

  2. I cannot wait to use my chocolate button moulds! It was a fab day, even though my little one had her fingers in all the sample Body Shop pots, but how soft were her little hands at bath time!

    Kelly and Emma did a fab job to make us so welcome,

    I am following you on bloglovin now and look forward to your new posts...
