    1. Hooray! I can’t wait. Very chuffed to be on the bill with and hear from such cool women.

    2. I wasn’t able to come because of the weather forecast (boo-hoo! – but I did send apologies so hope some other lucky person got my places) but I have read the fab live blog from @esthernagle – thanks! ^@paulineroche
