And when I talk wings I mean like those of a butterfly as, once again, I shall be donning my own (well, kind of) to support anyone from newcomers to speakers who may be getting a few nervous flutters. After feedback from previous events, our schedule has been somewhat reduced so I'll be free as a, er, butterfly after welcoming all the attendees along with my colleagues, some new and some old (well, kind of again!).
We've written a post HERE that outlines where we'll be and what we'll be doing and I can't wait to meet some of you, squeeze some who are now old friends after four years of blogging and smile graciously during the
There's lots of chat about what we'll be wearing and I've only just sorted myself out. Comfort is key 'coz it's a long day and looking glam at the same time can be a bit tricky, especially when you're only 5' and need heels to see over anything and anyone in quite crowded conditions.
Apparently, it's all in the accessories and aren't there some lovely ones about? I've seen these gorgeous watches online at Tesco and am very tempted by a pale blue one to match my trousers on the second day, although a Betty Barclay for £25 has got to worth a thought as well or instead, hasn't it? The necklaces in almost every single shop are stunning and, no doubt, there will be lots of those around while we all try to look our best pretending it was effortless - but, again, by being only little, it's easy to be overwhelmed by the huge ones, so I might stick to an old favourite. It may, no doubt, be as grateful for an airing as I will be!
Here's the plan for day 1 and day 2.

If she has any butterflies before her talk on Saturday, she can come to any of us in the team who are there for exactly that purpose. I am really looking forward to meeting her, as I am all of you who will be there, so do, please, let me know if you're attending and we can say hello!
