On the town

Yesterday, as you would have seen by my post, I was feeling tired, nervous about going out and just not together.

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:

  1. I'm so pleased you kicked up your heels Corinne and had a great night! Every so often it's important we do these things for ourselves, it also reminds us we're lucky to have husbands that let us!

  2. Looked like a great night. I love seeing pics of all the bloggers getting together.

  3. I am so glad you came. I often so the same as you, but this was work so I couldn't back out. You're such great company and didn't blather one bit. xx

  4. Haha, these are terrific photos Corinne. I really think you've captured the fun of the night... blurry and all, a blurry night is a good one! I'm sure the cabbie is going to head straight out and buy a Territory now, that lady could sell ice to eskimos. So so happy that you had a great night out. And big congratulations on making the top 50, second year running! xoxo

  5. I'm so glad you had a good time! Knew you would x

  6. Looks like you had a great night, so glad you let yourself enjoy it!!! Good hubby too. Hope head is feeling much better soon! x

  7. Glad you had a ball.
    Well deserved!
    Hope the head clears soon though.
    :-) xx

  8. Meeting you was a highlight of my night.

    You're just ... great!

    Drinking champagne made me realise I am just not 21 any more, but sometimes, a hangover is just so completely worth it!

    When you're in Melbourne next, do not be a stranger! xx


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
