The ABBs 2016

image

Well what can I  say, it was one of most exciting days of my life! Okay maybe you have a more exciting life than me but the ABB has been one of the highlights of my year so far!
When was it? Saturday 11th June, Where? The Driver, 2-4 Wharfdale Road
London N19RY.

I could not go last year so this was my first attendance.
It was just amazing to put faces to the many bloggers I have been interacting with over the years.
Imagine my surprise meeting the Geoffle and discovering he has a purple beard! and Sasha has such brilliant taste in shoes, who knew Hugh was so welcoming a camera man, and that Ali was every bit a lovely as her blog suggests!
There were Bloggers from the four curves of the globe…. well okay Switzerland,Lichtenstein, Poland, Scotland, Ireland,Wales and and many and varied counties of England.

On arrival we received our name badges, and T-shirts if we had ordered them . Then we all stood around introducing ourselves we also had time to buy a drink then it was time for some awards, we also had a  talk from Automattic‘s very own Luca Sartoni which was very interesting and he answered our questions. Luca came all the way from Austria.
Then there were more awards , more chat more awards and food.
I met so many lovely people most of whom I had not met before so now I can visit lots of new blogs.
So many, many thanks to the committee for all your hard work to bring us this year’s successful Bloggers Bash and I am already looking forward to next year’s event!
Now some photos of decor, lampshades , and backs of heads!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday:MB Press The Button Part 8

LindaGHill said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “mb.” Find a word that has those two letters in it, in that order, and base your post on it. Have fun!”

Push the Button MB

“Do you remember why we are here” asked James as we entered the Pub. I really had to stop and think about the question, slowly it dawned on me that I had absolutely no idea.
We saw Dean and Kylie sitting at word table with a number people we had never seen before.

We made our way across the room to join them avoiding all sorts of unusual people as we went. It was like walking through a host of characters , animals and birds from a weird book or film. Some laughing and some completely sombre. All full of lively conversation and all very interested in us.

The closer we got to where Kylie and Dean were sitting I realised that even though they were looking straight at us there was no recognition in their eyes, they had no idea who we were.

It was then I saw that James had left my side I called his name but to my horror he totally ignored me.

I stood alone in this crowded room unable to gain the attention of my friends the suddenly I began to wonder what was going on. I really could not remember where I was or what I was doing.

By now I was sweating I was scared, I looked around the room for something I could recognise, something I could remember . Finally I saw something I remembered.  A button, a red button marked press. So again I pressed the button.

abba-2016

In these days of the Perfect Body and with Beauty Tips everywhere and all sorts of nobodies vlogging on their own Youtube channels about make up and appearance and what have you (Zoella, Tricia Cusden, Melissa55 – yes, I’m that cool that I know this stuff) we bloggers need to think about our appearance at the Bash this Saturday. Hugh has posted, here, on what to bring so I thought you might welcome some guidance on a rigorous pre Bash regime to ensure your ABB is tip top and pipping!!
