I am jumping on a plane later this week to go to the Aussie Bloggers Conference in Sydney. Just me and my carry-on bag. I am so darned excited about the trip – a little adventure on my own. I will be catching up with old friends I haven’t seen in ages, spending time alone (which is a novelty) and meeting a whole bunch of people for the first time face-to-face. I feel like I know so many of them through late night Twitter marathons and from reading their amazing blog posts. But now I’m going to see them in the flesh (well, not in the flesh, they will be clothed). I can’t wait to give them all a hug. No smiley face emoticons attached, no LOLs or PMSLs – just a great big, old fashioned wrap-your-arms-around-each-other hug. Watch out I’m coming your way Sydney.
This is part of Maxabella Loves weekly blog hop. Go visit her!
When I looked at that photo I thought of you in the middle, hidden in a mass of bronzer. Have a fantastic time at the Bloggers Conference, enjoy that little piece of alone time. Big hugs, Kirstyxx
YAY! Can’t wait. I can’t believe it’s only a week away now!
Looking so forward to meeting you, hon. x
PS. I hope you won’t be greased up like those in your pic above. Otherwise….ewwww….
You give good hugs too; cannot wait. xxx
Have a wonderful time. It sounds like a bloggers/mother’s dream. Time alone and with others like you = heaven! I’m a tad jealous. xx
Oh have fun, say hi to Sydney for me (my home town) i’m up the following week for a bloggy craft event. You are SO going to end up like those blokes, all shiney, on stage, hugging, remember to take snaps so we can check out how it went. Love Posie
Have fun! I’m so jealous of all the fun that will be had!
I like your post but hate that pic.
I hope to attend a British Blogging event soon and really wish you lots of fun and cuddles on your trip.
I am grateful for stuff over at http://gigglingatitall.blogspot.com
Ooh have a fab time. I shall look forward to reading all about it. x
Have a wonderful time – I think it’s going to be a real humdinger!
Hurrah! Have fun in Sydney, and enjoy the novelty of alone time.
Rock it mommy. You deserve it.
Woo hoo! I am super excited too and I am so glad you are a hugger! I love to give hugs too and it is lovely to know I won’t be the only one trying to hug people. N x
I’m coming prepared for some IRL PMSLs – see you in a matter of days!!!
Less. Than. A. Week. Squeeeeeeee!!!
And thanks for the encouragement… I hope it gets better pretty damn soon! Those f’in Aussie men, I tell ya. haha
oh that photo is a cracker!!
It’s going to be so awesome to finally meet everyone…. scarily awesome!
oh hello, how gross is that pic (LOL). But definitely looking forward to some real face to face converstations next weekend…hope we don’t run out of things to talk about (tee hee)
Um yeah, I hope you are wearing clothes and ungreased when it comes to hugging, otherwise I’m in. I really cannot wait, I am so looking forward to meeting you and so many awesome bloggie/twitter peeps. Travel safely!
I can’t wait! Am getting really excited now, and am flexing my arms in readiness for hugging! See you soon!
I’m actually getting quite anxious, but am ever so excited at the same time!
Hope there will be some boys to grease up…that would be inspirational for my blog 😉
I’m nervous about hugging strangers, it’s out of my comfort zone to have unknown people touching me, but you’re all my friends, so I’ll be okay. Fingers crossed.
You are going to have such a fabulous time! And, oh my god, did I laugh when I saw the pic you chose!! x
i love big old fashioned hugs!
have fun, sounds like the best place to be this weekend ♥
Have a great time. I can’t wait to read everyone’s reports. x
