I'm sure a lot have you guessed that last Wednesday I went to London with fellow Stream Teamers from Ireland. It was hard not to notice; I had it all over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
Netflix invited us over to the beautiful Soho Hotel to get a special screening of the new series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" (read more about it here) plus some pampering for us mums. Just like Kimmy Schmidt us mums are, without a doubt, unbreakable!. We can sometimes forget that we are more than just mums. Well, I do sometimes. I forget that I have things I love to do outside of nappies and dealing with "art" on the walls, and travel is one of those things. Just like Kimmy we are all strong too, and full of inspiration. On the other hand we can sometimes feel like the other character Jacqueline; we can have her vulnerability in us and sometimes we need support.
We were treated to three episodes on the day and as someone who openly would say I'm not into comedies, this had me in stitches. Last night when it premiered on Netflix I was onto it straight away not only re-watching the first three episodes but also watching a further two.

It was very surreal to believe that we were in London but then you would get a jolt when you would see a red bus go by or a black cab then the realisation would hit you all over again. We were treated to some delicious treats by some ahem...very attractive waiters. We got foam hands that if we put them up we were waited on hand in foot. We were also treated to manicures and massages. It was also a delight to meet some other Stream Teamers from the UK, Finland, and further afield.

The day is one that I will treasure forever, I got to meet some of the most amazing women who are also amazing mothers and I have made friends for life. Some of us had never met before but for me it was like going away with my best friends for a day. It was a day I really let my hair down and had so much fun.
A huge thank you to Nicola and Netflix for having us and treating us to a very special day.
