Beta Mummy and the Other Bloggers


I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because let’s be honest, if you’re a blogger yourself, you’ve probably read plenty of these write-ups already.  And if you’re not a blogger, you probably don’t give a damn that I met a load of other bloggers last weekend.  Did you even know that blogging conferences were a thing?  I know I didn’t, before I, Beta Mummy, became immersed in this strange, slightly egocentric, very friendly, and exceedingly nutty world.

Beta Mummy is let loose on BML16!


Right. This is where I say “hi” to fellow Britmums Live-goers, so we all get to know each other a little bit beforehand, with the aim of minimising the terror of walking into a room full of 500 people I don’t know, to talk about a subject that I know pretty much nothing about….ho hum. Screw these questions, I’m relying on dutch courage and the lure of free cake to get me there!

The Mums’ Night Out.


It goes pretty much without saying that, once you’re a mum, your social life changes somewhat.  Spontaneous nights out become a thing of the past, now you have babies/children to feed, put to bed, organise a babysitter for.  Drinking heavily into the wee small hours is no longer a great idea, not now that the wee small hours is precisely when you’re likely to be woken up by a demand for Cheerios and Peppa.  Besides, a hangover hardly bears thinking about when you have noisy little dictators to manage in the morning, AND will sacrificing several hours of (potential) sleep be worth it, given your cumulative sleep deficit?
