My visit to London to attend the #GoogleMums event

This week is just one of those amazing ones.

On Saturday, I will be going to Mumsnet BlogFest in London.

On Monday, I started the week by going to Google London.

When I was given an opportunity to visit Google London, it was one I took with no hesitation. I had heard their offices are fabulous and I just HAD to go to see the office.

I did have to take my little one with me as there was no one I could leave her with and the lovely people at Google assured me that they were child friendly.

I had to take the tube and was a bit sceptical about my little one falling sick or throwing up but I landed at Google well in time (well, after getting lost and taking the wrong turn) without any hiccups (literally)

The meet was a #GoogleMums meet up and when I walked in to the huge room, I felt immediately at ease. There was a play mat with lots of markers and paper to colour on and a bean bag to flop on too.

WP_001029There were 4 different stations set up

  • Creating your work/life balance
  • Educating yourself and the family
  • Entertaining the family
  • Making your family’s web experience as safe as possible.

We took it in turn to visit each station and get advice from Google experts on each area. There are so many new things I learnt that I will share with you at a later date.

There was excellent food in the form of sandwiches, wraps, cakes etc. and tea/coffee/soft drinks

It was a lovely morning spent at Google and do keep watch on my blog as I will be sharing all I learnt soon.

It was also the first time that I travelled alone on the tube with little one and it passed without event – so I shall be trying it more often.

A big thank you to the Google team for a great morning.

I think Aeryn grew a little attached to this Chromebook.  Wonderful choice!
