Here I am sitting on Friday evening before the event of the year takes place at Cybermummy 11 tomorrow!
Now I know I'm not the only one missing out as have been tweeting with
@motherbadger @lynnet1508 @mumonamission1 @mummybeadzoid @annadummymummy who all assure me they are not there either ( unless it's some weird and cruel joke they are playing- which I'm sure they are far too nice to do)!
Not a big deal I can hear you say, there are lots of people not able to go for one reason and another. My reason would be money, at the time I could not justify paying the money for the ticket as I am currently off work and skint enough as it is!!
So in true blogger style I then started to enter all the competitions people where running, but to no avail. Then when I got very desperate ( yes we all have our low points in life!) I decided to answer emails that had come through with tickets for sale.........I was fooling myself into thinking I would find the money from somewhere. However It was not to be as each one I answered had already been sold!!
So again, I find myself in the position of the sad many left out of this particular party. However, I didn't let the 'Green eyed monster' take control and I very graciously wished all the Cybermummy attendees a great time on twitter this morning.
I have followed their travels on the twitter sphere and realised that some people really have gone to a great deal of trouble to get there, travelling from far and wide. That was supposed to make me feel better but it didn't................................WHY?
Because I actually live a 25 minute train journey from London.........close enough to smell the Cybermummy 11 buzz ( so to speak). On the London/ Kent border so I wouldn't even have to stay the night........as long as I was sober enough to catch the last train home!
So there it is, I'm slightly ashamed that I haven't managed to organise myself a ticket when all these lovely bloggers ,who I would love to meet, are travelling from so far.
So tonight I'm going to hope there is something great on telly whilst I have a yummy cold Koppaburg cider ( oh don't you worry I know how to live!) . But I will keep a check on twitter pals who are also at home as I drown my sorrows.......ok maybe more than a cider then LOL
And tomorrow when all those lovely peeps are twittering how fantastic Cybermummy 11 is I will kiss my lovely son ( actually not so lovely this week as he has managed to lose a new Ipod! I know don't freak out on my behalf, I've already done that) as he and dad head off to Hyde Park to see one of his favourite bands- Bon Jovi in concert and know that my ( sorry my OH's) money was well spent on him and not a Cybermummy ticket!
WATCH OUT NEXT YEAR I'M COMING EVEN IF I HAVE TO START SAVING NOW!
