The Hive and learning to slow down

I had one of the busiest weeks for a while last week and as part of it I was very much looking forward to attending The Hive blogging conference so when I had the early signs of sickness, I pushed them away, rested a bit, took a concoction of meds and vitamins and carried on. It was a big mistake as after an inspiring and enjoyable weekend meeting lots of fab bloggers, catching up with old friends, learning many new things and eating great food, I finally had to admit that a running temperature, sore throat and pains all over was a message to slow down. The doctor told me my bacterial infection which had spread though my body was off the scale and I needed to rest with a good dose of antibiotics. So that is what I shall do for a few days.

I leave you now with images from my weekend at the fantastic Hive conference and fight this infection.view over Copenhagen harbourSunset view over the harbour from Sticks and Sushi at the Tivoli Hotel before dinner with Anne of Anne’s Kitchen.

Dinner at Nose2Tail with Jenni of Museum Diary started with these huge and still cracking pork scratchings. If you are looking for a great gluten free experience this place is definitely for you.

The Hive on Sunday ended with cakes and fruit (how very Danish) on these lovely cake plates from Ferm Living and special Hive jars of Nutella to take home. cakes and plates by Ferm Living nutella jars for the hive I was too busy listening and chatting (and feeling ill) to take more photos at the conference but if you are on Instagram check out #hive14 hashtag for a real feel of the weekend.

See you back here in a few days….
