I’m going to BritMums Live!

About a year ago I kept seeing numerous bloggers who I follow on Twitter tweeting about BritMums Live and I vowed that I would go this year. Having my second baby in November of last year means I’ve not been as proactive with my blog as I had hoped as I’ve been too busy enjoying spending time with my two daughters. But I’m still blogging and I’m going to BritMums Live 2013!

I’m linking up with the BritMums Live Linky with my answers to their questions below, I hope to meet lots of you in a few weeks’ time.

Here I am!

Here I am!

Name: Sophie

Blog: Franglaise Mummy

Twitter ID: @FranglaiseMummy

Height: Somewhere between 5ft 3 and 5ft 4 – which was average height when I lived in France, but now I’m living in the UK again I’m back to feeling dwarf-like.

Hair: Chin-length brown with high-lighted bits. Depending on what it decides to do on the day it can be anything from full-on ringlets to a mass of frizz.

Eyes: Again it depends on the day, they can be green, grey or hazel and they change depending on what colour I’m wearing and how hungover/tired I am.

Is this your first blogging conference? Indeed it is, and I’m excited and nervous in equal measures.

Are you attending both days? That’s the aim but I’m not sure what time I might get there on the Friday. I may also be accompanied by my 6 month old daughter at some stage.

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013? Meeting all the lovely bloggers whose blogs I’ve been reading and who I’ve been tweeting with over the last however many months.

What are you wearing? Wow, that’s a question and a half. I have absolutely no idea. How dressy (or not) is it? If it’s dressy it’ll be jeans, a nice top and heels or even a dress maybe. If it’s not too dressy then jeans, a more casual top and flats no doubt. If the weather’s nice I’ll be rocking a full on summer wardrobe.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013? I want to meet other parent bloggers, chat to them about blogging, parenting, juggling it all, and pick up some tips in the workshops.

Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows: I have amazingly toned pelvic floor muscles, as the French make you go to “rééducation du périnée” (reeducation of the perineum) sessions after having a baby!

    Sophie is my most favourite name ever. Ooooh i’m 5ft 3 1/2 always fancied moving to France – although my French is not very good.

    Look forward to meeting you.

      It took me a long time to like the name as no one was called that as I was growing up, but I love the fact it works so easily in English and French. You’re another small one like me 🙂 I’ll have to teach you some drunken French at BritMums 😉 Look forward to meeting you then.

    OMG “rééducation du périnée” is possibly the best thing I’ve read all day!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it….probably more than I enjoyed the experience! You gotta love the French 😉

    LOL. Love the French re-education of the perineum! nice they think of the woman as a woman after birth. I’m American living here in England and both countries seem to move immediately into woman as mum mode (“bonding with baby, breastfeeding etc.”). Also empathise with your height – I too am 5’4” on a good day and in the USA considered average height. Here I feel like a dwarf. I get my kids measured in the USA to make me feel better because here they are only 25 percentile but in USA they are 50th percentile.

    Hope to meet you tomorrow!

      I’ve come across lots of littlies in their BritMumsLive intro, so hopefully we won’t be alone 🙂

      I hope to see you tomorrow too!

  8. Loved reading your post! I’m really looking forward to BritMums Live – sure you are too – looks like it will be a great event.
    If you see me wandering around please say hello as I’d love to meet you IRL 🙂
