Bring on the bloggy me time

So, it seems after 18 months of blogging, there is going to be a little reward for my love of writing – I am on the eve of two days for me, on my own, by myself, just for me.  And I can’t wait.

Tomorrow I’m going to London to a She Magazine shoot for a feature about spending too much time online.  I openly admit that my blog and Twitter are a little lifeline, and that when my Blackberry, then my laptop both broke recently, I had little palpitations and wondered if it was comeuppance.

I did try to instil into the writer that I don’t compromise my time with the bear – we go out a lot, we do messy play, we roll around on the floor and tickle – it just means when he’s in bed, I put myself in the seriously at risk of RSI category because I’m on the computer all evening (unless husband is home, unless I sneak a look when he’s doing a pee), rather than relaxing.

I love to cook and put a nice dinner on the table every night. The housework gets done (because I’m a bit of an OCD Anthea Turner fan), but I don’t exercise, get my nails done or have early nights really.

So tomorrow, the hair, makeup and clothes will be a real treat.  And the bear will be with Grandma and Granddad so I won’t even have to keep one eye open for him climbing on things, eating things or hitting things.  I’m stupidly excited that ‘a car’ is collecting me from Paddington!

And as if that wasn’t enough, on Tuesday I’m doing lunch (doing not having) in Chelsea at My Hotel which looks gorgeous, with my fellow Huggies mums!  Huggies have sponsored 10 of us to go to CyberMummy and I’m so excited.  After the spell of breakages which extended to my car and the oven, I just couldn’t go, so they saved the day.

I’m sure one of the emails from Huggies mentioned manicures!  I have no nails,  they just don’t withstand my lifestyle, but I still can’t wait, squeak!!!!

I may never want to return from the big smoke after the next two days.
