I wasn’t sure if I was going to make the Myaware conference for under 40s tomorrow. First of all, my weekends have been so manic over the last while that I didn’t know if I could deal with another Saturday night away from home. However, when the posts about it started on the Facebook group a while back, and the excellent line up was revealed, I suffered FOMO (fear of missing out). So I compromised and decided to go through to Birmingham on Saturday morning and come back the same night.
I didn’t expect Elaine to want to come – a whole day is a big ask and, with her full on job, her weekends are precious. However, when she said she wanted to join me I was delighted. Our plan until today was to drive through together in her car. But then her indicators stopped working.
Swithering about whether to go or not following this latest set back, I once again looked at the line up and decided I would be mad to miss it. So Elaine and I will be getting up much earlier than we normally do on a Saturday morning (especially since I’ve been out at a Grease singalong tonight as pictured above) to ensure we’re there for kick off. I’ll be tweeting from the conference at @LaurnaRobertson and will post about it after the event.
