It will be a big event and there are lots of people who have ridiculous numbers of followers on their social media channels who will be both attending and presenting.
They are usually pretty generous with their knowledge and are happy to share it all with those wanting to learn the way. We all sit there writing and thinking and asking questions.
By the end of the day you are pretty exhausted but also buzzing with the excitement from soaking up so much in such a short time.
Then you have a function to attend. Everyone dons their best glad rags, splashes on their best face and the hair straighteners are heated and ready to work.
This year, there is a theme. Nautical.
Pretty easy really. You can just do anything in red, white or blue. You could go crazy and dress as a pirate or a mermaid or wear a box and be a boat.
Some people might just wear a token symbol, a scarf with an anchor print, or perhaps a sunhat and glasses.
But wearing to a theme takes one essential ingredient. Confidence.
Not just anyone can turn up as a mermaid to a venue full of 500 people you don't know. You also need to consider how you are going to get around the venue, can you walk in those flippers or recognise people if you are wearing goggles on your eyes?
The alternative of not dressing to a theme can only be considered party pooperish. Dressing up is fun, it makes you make a bit of effort and offers the chance to do something different.
But I have no idea what I am going to wear! It's a classy party, I don't want to look like Popeye.
I found this dress, but they are out of stock.
Or I could go more dorky. Dorky often works on me.
