Day one of WordCamp

Nothing to do with gardening, but had a great day at the WordCamp gathering in Kilkenny today. Saw a few friends - David from PollDaddy, AnnMarie from whatshewears.ie, and being well minded by Cathy and Martin. Michael has joined in today, and is being put to work teaching the boys a 17th century song in the car on the way home to relieve their boredom.

2 things stand out - apart from the incredibly educational and inspirational talks I've attended - the family friendly nature of the conference means that the 2 boys are in a safe place playing DS and XBox games all day with other kids - and not a bit bothered that I'm not paying them any attention - in fact when I have gone to check on them during the breaks, they wave me away 'maturely'.

The service in Langtons is really good too - this morning we were looking for extra croissants, extra jam, and they couldn't have been more helpful. At the first break I wanted decaff anything, and they had a lovely decaff coffeee for me. At lunch the boys were grizzling about the absence of cheese sandwiches - one of the staff heard them, and next thing they each had a lovely grated cheese sandwich presented to them. So we are all doing great. Can't wait for tomorrow.

Silly me, thanks for providing the correct link.

Let me see if I can get a pass, or organise an expedition :-)
