How Exciting!!

Forgive me if I'm a little over-excited, won't you?  I'm off to London next week for a party - courtesy of the Pinterest team, no less!

I don't have much of an idea of what it's about, but I do know this: they've invited 150 UK bloggers and they're providing treats, goodies and activities (no idea what, your guess is as good as mine!).

Blogging might connect people...
but it's good to meet up in real life too!

Did I mention I was excited?  I don't have any photos of me jumping up and down (be thankful!) so a laptop shot will have to suffice.

Pinterest is launching a blog campaign in the UK in May (which I guess is why they are throwing a party for bloggers!).  I couldn't pass it up though, could I?  Not when Pinterest is one of my very favourite online places!  (You can see my boards here)

Oh, and the excitement doesn't end there - London is where my middle daughter lives, so guess where I'll be staying!  It will be so very lovely to spend a couple of days with her and my youngest granddaughter (who is apparently learning to speak Slovakian at a faster rate than she's learning English - her dad is Slovakian!).

this is me with my two gorgeous baby granddaughters!

If you've followed this blog for a while, you may possibly recall that I'm not quite sure of my ability to navigate ahem, ok then -  terrified of the London underground system, which might be the only (rather large) drawback to the whole trip.  How do people ever make out those underground maps?  It's entirely possible I will miss the Pinterest party altogether and spend the whole time whizzing around on the tube.

PS: I don't know why they invited me.  Perhaps it's an indication that I spend far too long pinning stuff...

PPS: Let me know if you are going too.  It would be really good to meet up!
