Some nice design updates

Got some nice emails in my inbox this morning! First one coming from Rachel with a prelim' design for our wedding invites! She's a talented lady that one. I might have an art degree, but I can't do stuff like this.

She's still looking for an ivy stamp to go up the side, and I've seen this and asked for green ribbon instead, but other than that I can't say a thing against the design! It's LOVELY!

Just got to get of my bum and sort out what I'm going to have written inside! I think my other sister-in-law-to-be is being roped in to use her calligraphy skills there! I love my in-laws-to-be! AND I'm NOT just saying that because I've sent them the link to this page :OD

I've also had an email from the lady at Sweetchestnut about my tiara. She's sent me a couple of photos of the demo tiara, which looks great too. You know, this is how impressed I am, she took one look at the detail photo I sent of my dress and found the exact same crystals to put on the tiara! Really! Without me telling her what brand they were or anything!

Now, she says there are things she can/wants to improve before moving on to the official thing, and if she actually can improve on it I'll be even more impressed! This is what she's sent me so for. In fact, I am so impressed that I have asked for a quote on a necklace and earring set with the same crystals on.

Feeling all very nice and happy today!

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
