The Acer Photo Booth : Friendship

I had to share these photographs with you as I love, love, love them!

I’ve always liked the notion of (that is, if I ever get married again….just keeping you on your toes Tall Dad ;) )  I would have a wedding photobooth, for people to record the day in.  Whilst we were at BritMums Live we used the Acer photobooth and it was so much fun.  A welcome relief when you are shattered from all the information you are trying to take in and networking.  I love that I will now have these photographs as memories of the day. Huge thanks to the Acer team for letting us be silly in it.

I had already met Molly and Missie Lizzie B before, and consider them two of my ‘bestest’ online buddies. Actually that’s not true, its gone beyond that now, and I consider them my real life friends as well.  It was however, the first time I had met Gorami (as she is known on twitter) and well, we just clicked, it’s so lovely when that happens!

We also had some silly pictures taken…look she’s taller than me!

I also went in on my own on the first day…its true I’m never far away from my IPad!

I had such a fab time, a really big thank you to the BritMums team, and my lovely friends, for making it so special.

p.s. We  missed you Kay and Tracy.

p.p.s. I also missed the other Maid Marion’s!

Thank you for reading

Cover of the everything Oz book

We are all a bit crazy at The Ana Mum Diary house, for Everything Oz. I’ve posted before about Miss N, and her role as Glinda in The Wizard of Oz. So when I was asked if I would like to review a copy of the second, in the ‘Everything’ series (The first being Everything Alice) I jumped at the chance.  The RRP is 14.99 but currently you can pre-order your own copy on Amazon for £10.99.

BritMums Live (My weekend in photographs)

BritMums Live (My weekend in photographs)

Well it’s the morning after the weekend before, and what a weekend!

BritMums Live (a blogging conference for parents in London)  was nothing like I expected. I’ll be honest, it’s been hard to know what to expect after Cybher.

Like Cybher I got the most out of it when I started to relax a little and actually listen to what people had to say. I again came away thinking blogging for me, is all about going my way.  It reaffirmed what type of blogger I am. Continue Reading

Elderflower Recipes : Vodka & Cordial

Elderflowers

I love the flavour of elderflower, and now is a perfect time to harvest them (usually the end of May onwards for a few weeks) it seems a little later this year, must have been the strange changeable weather we are having.  I wanted to share with you a few Elderflower recipes. Continue Reading
