Blog On MSi 2016

Blog On MSI 2016 was my first experience of a bloggers conference, I was extremely excited and ridiculously nervous about the whole affair.

The Journey

Waking in the early hours I tiptoed around getting ready whilst trying not to wake the troops. I barely even managed a bowl of cornflakes due to nerves and after throwing my suitcase (which I was informed we would all require) into the boot and checking I had packed everything bar the kitchen sink I finally set off southwards praying my nerves would steady themselves.

#MySundayPhoto – Building Progress

It’s been a fortnight since the builders began working on our extension. There have been many people that have commented on how quickly things seem to be coming together, whereas I am quietly tapping my fingers willing things to speed up a little more.
