so i’ve taken the plunge and bought my ticket. eeeeekkkkk. its taken me a while, i know, but so many other bloggers and tweeters have been chatting away about britmums live for such a long time and with such enthusiasm, and i’ve really wanted to say “can i come too?” but for some strange reason, i just haven’t had the nerve. why is that?
it’s confused me a bit you see, because i’m not a particularly shy person, i’m really not in the very slightest, but something has been holding me back. I love the interaction that i have had with bloggers and tweeters over the last couple of months as i have become much more interactive, so why would i not want to do this?
i wonder if it’s down to the anonymity that you have whilst blogging and tweeting, i’m just some letters and then suddenly, BAM, i will be totally exposed. you will see me. what i look like? how i sound? and then what happens? will anyone even notice? who will i talk to? what is the etiquette? oh my god i feel sick already, get a grip woman.
i can only compare to the first day at university or first day in a new job. where you are suddenly thrust into the unknown. funny thing is i’m a grown woman, a responsible parent and suddenly and quite ridiculously, i’m find that i’m shitting a brick, of absolute magnificent proportions!
so as you see i’m nervous, but i’m going for it. i booked the afternoon off work and i’m coming. please be kind and say hello.
