Are you attending Britmums live 2014? ‘Guilty as charged ‘gov!’ I reside in Saaaath East London (you have to say it like to sound authentic), so I’m privy to using this slang I’ll have you know! (not that I speak in this way) .Now, whilst I’ve enjoying reading the many other ‘I’m going to britmums live’ linkys, what struck me was the vast number of pretty pictures there were of y’all (have I made you blush yet?). & As much as this is vey nice ’n’ easy on the eyes, I thought perhaps I’d shake it up a little. So here are some ‘daft as a brush’ pictures of me: In the style of a mugshot! & Yes, i made that little sign….
It all went down hill from here………
- Name: Katrina. Katrina Cool Bananas. Mrs Cool Bananas. But most unequivocally, never, ever Kat.
- Blog: Cool Bananas Blog . This is a phrase, used to indicate something is awesome. I think life can be pretty awesome, & its a saying i use all the time!
- Twitter ID: @coolbananasblog
- Height: 5ft 6”
- Hair: Blonde, all be it *ahem* enhanced slightly…
- Eyes: Brown. Very dark brown.
- Is this your first blogging conference?
*Newbie alert* I only set up my blog in October, but didn’t really start it until this year. So I’m a complete & total novice, in all aspects of the blogger world.
‘Who is that person, that keeps asking questions?’– Apologies, this’ll probably be me. You have been warned….
- Are you attending both days?
Oh yes indeedee, ever the frugal type I’d like to get my money’s worth! & Just between friends, I’m secretly quite excited about the prospect of 2 child-free days (sssshhh).
- What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2014?
By Golly miss molly, absolutely everything! I shall try & convince my brain to be a sponge & soak up as much information as is humanly possible (whilst in a state of constant fatigue). & I can’t wait to meet the rest of you rowdy bunch: it’ll be great to talk with those of you in person, who up until this point have been but a pretty picture on my mac screen.
- What are you wearing?
Really? Seriously, It’s April! I have no idea about what I’ll be wearing tomorrow, let alone in 2 months time!! I’m sure denim of some variety will be the order of the day (I toyed with the idea of dressing like a huge comical banana, so y’all could pick me out easily in the crowd: But I pretty rapidly decided against this idea) …..One thing I know for sure that I will be wearing, is the best accessory going: a Smile (all together now…ahhh, cheesy).
- What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2014?
I’d love to come away from Britmums with a sense of achievement: hopefully having learnt & absorbed some beneficial information, on the techy side of blogging & tips on developing further.
& I’d also love to find a sense of ‘belonging’- Ok, I know that might sound a bit over the top: but throughout life I’ve always felt a bit out of place & since having bear, It’s like I have found my missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle (the puzzle of life). When I stared blogging, this feeling of belonging increased & I’ve felt so welcomed into the community & I’d love to extend my ‘virtual’ friendships into reality.
If anyone wants to meet up for a spot of lunch before the main event on Friday, give me a shout! It’d be grand to have a chat before entering the lions den unknown…….
