Party Party with Baby Baby

So, you've got your ticket to Cybermummy. You've got your travel arranged and booked your hotel.

Now what do you do?

What if you've never met another blogger and are nervous about going to the conference, nervous about being in London on your own?

Maybe you went to Cybermummy last year and want to make the most of the opportunity to catch up with your friends.

Well, I've got a cunning plan.

On the evening of Friday 24th June, the night before Cybermummy (or Cybermummy Eve as I'm calling it) I'm having a party. I'm calling it

  'Meet, Greet and Eat'.

The idea is we meet at the Travelodge, er.. greet each other, then go over the road for something to eat.

I've booked the highly regarded Italian restaurant L'abat-Jour for a private party.

I will be selling tickets very soon. They will be £25, payable in advance via Paypal. For that you get a three course meal (starter, pizza and pudding), including a glass of wine, followed by tea or coffee. Service charge is included, as is your first (mini) goody bag of the weekend!

This is an open invitation to anyone attending Cybermummy. I'm hoping that I get to make some new friends, so it doesn't matter if you've been blogging for three weeks or three years you are welcome. You don't need to have met anyone beforehand. I can guarantee you will have a few buddies by the end of the evening. Dress code is casual, this will be an informal do.

So, who's in?

Please leave a comment to let me know you're interested. Also leave your blog URL (so I can have a nose, I'm always looking for blogs to add to my reader) and an email address so I can contact you when the tickets go on sale. Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis.

*sits at laptop, looking pensive, refreshing the screen, hoping that someone wants to come to my party*



  1. Cooeey! Can I come to your party? I'm staying at the Travellodge too :-)

  2. Oooo yes, I'd love to come (I'm at the Hoxton but don't think The Travelodge is very far). Please keep me informed.

  3. Yes please hostess with the mostess :)

  10. Oh :( I'd love to come but I'm not travelling down until the Saturday. Shame...I'd have been there like a shot!

  11. heya :) il have a word with Hannah when shes back from holiday as shes my room buddy :)

    sounds awesome though and im definitely interested!


  12. What time? I'm travelling up after girls' dinner, I think, so might be a bit late for your dinner? I think probably 7.30 would be the earliest I'd get there. Will you be having drinks somewhere after?

  13. I think you know me!! This is a great idea. Let me know what time. I haven't sorted out my travel plans yet but I will be nearby on the Friday night. x

  14. I have tweeted you but I'm definitely interested..
    Can't wait!


  15. Hello-ha? Did somebody say parteee? I like pizza. I like wine. Inlike meeting and greeting. Count me in too! What time O'clock will it be?

  16. Thanks for organising this Sandy. Hopefully we'll be able to pop in to say hello.

  17. Brilliant idea but I won't be able to make it I'm afraid as I'm travelling in on the Saturday.
    Have a great party and see you at Cybermummy!

  18. I'm not coming up until Sat morning so I'll miss this great idea : ( Maybe more eating and drinking can be done on the Saturday? : D

  19. Ooh count me in! I have never met anyone before and am so nervous! I would love to get the chance to meet and greet before the main event! I'm at The Hixton but understand that it's not a million miles away? Anyway, my blog is www.mostlyyummymummy.com and my email is mostlyyummy [at] rocketmail [dot] com

  20. Oh I so wish I could go but it's my birthday on the 24th so I'm coming to CM on the day. Would have been lovely to meet everyone. I now feel slightly out of the loop! xx

  21. Hi Sandy
    I can't make it, but John Crane might be interested in adding to the goody bag? Email me - Helen x

  22. Oh this sound perfect. Good thinking Batman!

  23. Wow this has really taken off :-)
    I need to decide if I need to conserve my energy for the big day.
    I'll check situation with hubby too, and may report back.
    Super idea though x

  24. Wow, I'm chuffed at the wonderful response. I was so worried I'd be nobby no mates!

    A little bit more info...
    We'll be meeting at 8 at the Travelodge and heading to the restaurant for 8.30. Afterwards? I don't know, but there are plenty of bars nearby...

    I have now emailed everyone (apart from Melitsa and Savvymum as I couldn't find your email addresses - please get in touch) with the next step.

    Some people have replied and paid for their tickets. This thing is really happening!

    Special thanks to Helen from John Crane Toys who has sent me something for the goody bags :-)

    To all those who can't make it, thank you for the lovely comments. Maybe we'll do it all again next year!

    Sandy x
