Well we are here in a sea of poly cotton viscose blends and screaming American women with bags filled with “swag”. It’s been quite overwhelming, what with all that viscose and screaming, and learning – so much learning! It’s certainly a change of scene and pace from our last week.
The sessions have been useful and interesting. There’s something comforting about being surrounded by people who “get it”. I did get shushed in a session yesterday – and I wasn’t even talking loudly! These women take their blogging seriously. The shusher was typing every word down verbatim – like the typing lady in a courtroom – business time!
It’s been nice to see the Australian’s in there amongst it all.
Check out the nerds in the first row. There was Katrina, and A-M and Tatum and Mrs W all working hard.
Martha Stewart was the keynote speaker over lunch and I have to say I was seriously impressed. She was funny, and smart and savvy and cheeky. I would quite fancy a few gins with the old girl, I think she would be a lot of fun. And did you know she was 71? I KNOW.
I’ve got a few ideas for the blog brewing in my head that I hope I can get out in the next few months. I’m excited and renewed about it all. And I am most definitely NOT thinking about tomorrow, and the fact that I am leaving. No, not one bit.
