Fat Quarterly Community Retreat London: 4 nights to go!

This Friday I'll be boarding a train to London, the old fashioned way!

I signed up for the retreat in December, when it was announced and that was a good thing. Booked the hotel on the other side of the street) and my journey by train.
I wonder if I would've done it now? Yes, probably, because I'm dying to meet so many other bloggers. It's a big blog meet to me. The workshops are an extra.
The icing on the cake is the location: Londen ahhhhhh
The down side is I will not be able to see the English queen on her boat trip; but I'll get over that.

What will they all look like?
Like Beyonce of course! 
How long will it take for the ice to break?
2 seconds 
Will others be nervous too?
Will I meet everyone?
Will anyone recognize me?
Now you will
Will I learn a lot?
Yes and like when you were attending secundary school: you learn even more outside the classroom (LOL)
Will I buy anything?
You bet!
Will I have fun?
Me and 100 others.
Will I cry Sunday afternoon?
That's my forte, so yes, probably (I'm such a softy).

Yes, I'm looking forward to this weekend!
See you all!!

And for those who don't go: I hope to make tons of pictures!
