BritMums live world record

How are you feeling today after such a fabulous BritMums Live? Personally I am still not back to normal, I’m still trying to process all of the tips, advice and information I took on board over the two days but I am on such a high, it’s really quite exhausting.

Susanna Scott

Well done to everyone who took part in the Guinness World Record attempt of wrapping the most mummies in three minutes. I wrapped up Susanna Scott, co-founder of BritMums (that’s her above) I wanted to cover her mouth, worried me might be penalised – No gaps, but she said, “Mari, I can’t breath!’ ‘Hold your breath for a minute, we need to win this’. My fall back plan was to resuscitate her if needs be but the bloggers I was wrapping with decided to let her have a hole to breath through and we still won!

I made moodboards, I drank wine, I drank more wine at the BiBs party

The Brewery

and I talked knickers with Carol Smillie over more wine and dinner.

I started to knit a cowl for winter and now the twins have asked for one each too.

I shall be making fajitas very soon and I am dreaming of becoming a Carnival Cruise Fun Seeking family along with the other 600 circa bloggers who attended.

    LOVE the colours in that cowl! Look at you, hobnobbing with celebs – right where you should be, of course 🙂 Good call on the not suffocating Susanna – we want to have another BritMums, don’t we?!

      I need more wool, it is beautiful isn’t it? I can’t wait to finish it now.
      So lovely to see you, albeit briefly…I did see you didn’t I? I saw so many people it’s all kind of blurring now.

      Susanna is a toughie, she survived and BritMums Live will return 😀

    I absolutely loved my first BritMums Live. It was a very late decision to go and I am so glad I did, as it was a brilliant couple of days. I am really enjoying reading all these posts on the linky, trying to re-live it all. Thank you for hosting. x
