But go out I did. And I had a ball. I was named one of Kidspot's Top 50 Bloggers (how awesome is that?) and last night was the launch. It was so nice to catch up with old blogging friends, rub shoulders with blogging royalty and meet some lovely new people.
I got frocked up, despite feeling like pulling the pin a couple of times, and let loose. It's the first time since before I got pregnant with D that I've gone out and really kicked up my heels and, believe me, I made up for lost time. Probably not the smartest move as I drank way too much champagne and feel awful today. Not to mention that Kidspot and the other bloggers probably think I'm a nutcase! Last year's event I left early and tucked myself into bed reading tweets from the other bloggers hitting the bars in Oxford St feeling jealous, I made sure I was a part of it this year.
Anyhoo, apologies if you came across me last night and I blathered onto you.
Many thanks to Skip who took great care of the non-sleeping baby and let me kick up my heels. He then had to put up with my snoring for the rest of the night. I really, really appreciate it.
Here are some (blurry) snaps from the night:
