Wrong shade of Ivory!

Who's have thought it? How many shades of ivory are there?? My shoes and handbag are JUST a shade or two darker than the dress!!!!

Now, to be honest, I couldn't care less. I think you would have to be looking pretty damn close at my feet to notice the difference in the shades, although Fay and the dress-maker were making it out to be an utter desaster, asking if I wanted to exchange the shoes, which I don't. OK, so the handbag is more visable to the avaerage punter than the shoes under my dress, but it's not like I'm going to be carrying it every where with me. I wont be using it in the ceremony, it wont be in the wedding photos, just keeping my bits and bobs in it for the evening do.... So I don't care that when you look close you can see a difference. Shesh! I'd end up having to take a scrap of dress to all the shoe shops with me, and I really don't want to be that obsessive!

So with that sorted out we went ahead with the dress measurements and hoop sizes and all maner of other stuff i don't mind amitting I didn't understand.

I was asked what style of embroidery I wanted on the dress (shows what I know, I thought it was just what was on the dress I tried on, but it seems I can choose a different one). I showed them the photo of the celti ring that me and Yorkie like - the angula one - and asked if that could be incorperated into the embroidery and they seem to think that it should be ok. That would be great! If I manage to get the same design as the rings onto the dress.... how lovely would that be? OK, so only me and Yorkie woul really know, but I think that would be quite special!

I should get "my design" through the post in a few days, so I'll scan it in and show you all. Don't worry, Yorkie doesn't view this blog so he wont be seeing the dress! I just want to share it with you all!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
