So the national MS 2018 finnaly arrived !!! On Friday we made our way to Athlone via the train …… and a little help from Google maps.
On the train down the other half had bought me a train beer and it was actually a craft beer supporting MS. It was quite nice 🙂 the hotel turned out to be a short walk from our hotel. We checked in and were amazed by the room as it was huge and so modern. After awhile we checked out the town and headed back to the room to get ready for drinks and dinner with some of the other bloggers and their other halfs.
Of course in true Katie style after dinner I had to leave the table as I was feeling unwell and unfortunately I was sick *oh the joys of this illness*. To be honest I have been dealing with an illness for the past week and a half and I think it might have had something to do with it. That night the room was like an oven and I just couldn’t sleep which didn’t help the sickness either.
The next day was the conference and the bloggers were tasked with live tweeting about the conference. I had the phone in once hand tweeting and then a notepad in the other scribbling down notes and bullet points. I learnt quite abit but aside from learning alot I just enjoyed seeing my friends. I just wish so much that I wasn’t sick.
I do want to get more involved with the ms community and I feel by going to these events this is how I can achieve it. I’m hoping maybe in the future to do a blog on what I learnt at the conference if anyone wants to hear about it ?
On the train home I was so tired from the fact I got no sleep the night before that I actually managed to fall asleep without trying. *oh so bad*
Now I’m off to relax and try and get better as I’m still sick. *yay* and the house heating is broken so I am freezing. But until next week unless my fingers freeze I will chat to you then !
