The sponsors were amazingly generous.
I was lucky enough to win a door prize.
Sadly, I missed out on the best prizes in the stampede (it was first-in, first-served, and everyone wanted a Rubbermaid mop. (Yes I know, even housework-hating me. That's because the Rubbermaid mops are supposed to be freaking awesome! And anything that can help me clean faster is a winner on my list).
However, I did pick up a pack of these, so I was well pleased.
I seemed to have lost a crap-load of Tupperware in my marriage separation (including stuff I was given before my first marriage), so I'm really grateful for these lovely little containers which will hopefully help me restore order in my kitchen.
And then there were the goodie bags.
We had a few places to go on the Friday night, and at the last one, all of us lined our lovely GSK goodie bags against the wall. I didn't get to look inside, but they were apparently awesome. The GSK people also gave me a second one, so I could give it away to my followers who weren't lucky enough to attend the historic Aussie Bloggers Conference.
But when I left, I was thinking of how I was to get back to the hotel from there, and I forgot to pick up my bags.
I asked around, tweeted, and rang the bar, but my bags have not materialised. I'm SOOOO disappointed.
Luckily, there were goodie bags at the conference too.
They were filled with fabulous products from the Aus Blog Con's main sponsors, including Disney Australia, Kleenex, Dyson, and Rubbermaid. But there were also other cute goodies, like Lindt chocolate, B-Strings, Viva, and Guardsman. How fabulous!
Filled to the brim with useful stuff to use at home

See how many things we were given? I'm so looking forward to enjoying them!
Best of all, I didn't have to buy another bag. I hadn't had a spare moment to shop, but the very nice man at Virgin check-in put my goodie bag and Rubbermaid prize into one of those stripey bags, so I could bring them home. I thought that was lovely!
