#BML16 – first time nerves – I’m blogging & I’m not even there yet!

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

From the moment I went to bed last night I’ve been waking every hour. Excitement, nerves, paranoia I’d sleep through my alarm. Today is the day. The day I meet so many fab amazing bloggers. People I respect, look up to, regard as the greats. Today is the day I learn more, figure out what I do next. Today is the day I attend my first blogging conference.

My alarm went off at 4.45. A rediculous time. A time I cursed when I worked and had to go to London Town for a meeting. Not today, I work 3 minutes before my alarm. I was wide awake and raring to go.

Round the corner from my house I drove past a well to do man, donning a tux. His stagger was quick and purposeful. Obviously keen to get home before his kids woke. It did make me chuckle. This is suburbia.

The coffee shop wasn’t open, the train a dreary two carriage thing without a coffee cart. But my excitement carried me through. My second train is decent, a proper GWR with a cafe. My latte did the job, I’m awake and feeling properly human.

But now, we’ve just passed Reading and my nerves have come back, so I’m writing this. I doubt I’ll ever feel these exact feelings again, I want to remember them.

In an hour I’ll be meeting my blogging besties, friends I’ve spoken to for nearly a year and never met. Friends I feel I know. I can’t wait!

Typing has helped my nerves so… I’ll leave it there for now…

Next post coming soon!!!

      Thanks lovely! I was a bit of an odd day seeing so many familiar people and nerves did quickly disappear to be followed by… Seas of people to say hi to, and not enough time x
