This past Friday I headed down to London on a solo trip to meet loads of blogger for the MAD Blog Awards. It was a bit touch and go there for a bit while I sorted out childcare. In the end my fabulous friend saved the day!
My train arrived around 2ish and I scrambled to figure out how to get to our hotel. I’m nothing if not a planner- har! In the end I found Nickie and Mary loitering around Euston Station and we decided to walk over to the hotel together. After going to spend a penny (or 30) we headed out into London Town! After checking our directions, stopping and asking someone and a bit more walking we found out fab hotel in the heart of Soho! The Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury It was veddy swish, so much so Mary and I couldn’t figure out how to work the lift!
Sally had some very nice surprises for us one of which was a chance to have our hair done by a professional hairdresser. So after meeting some bloggers for an early supper I headed back to the hotel to get my hair did! It was very nice to be pampered like that. I opted to walk to the awards at the TalkTalk’s Customer Experience Centre as it wasn’t very far away and it was a beautiful day. So armed with my trusty iPhone I headed out. Unfortunately my phone is dying a sloooooow and painful death, after a few wrong turns I made it safe and sound to the awards. I got there a bit early but took the opportunity to get familiar with the location. Sally had organized a professional photographer to take photos of everyone as they entered the TalkTalk Centre- very red carpet! Soon things started to roll and I spent the evening chatting, drinking, taking photographs of some beautiful women (and a couple of handsome blokes) and just having a fantastic time. I want to thank Sally for all her hard work it really was a fabulous night. I don’t think there was one problem and if there were any no one was any wiser and that’s what matters.
As you probably guessed by the mere fact of my not mentioning it- I didn’t win! Boo! Hiss! There is always next year! So thank you so very very much to everyone who voted for me. Roll on next year- Imma gonna kick some ass… maybe.
