Wedding Jewellery

This is another opportunity for me to get all silly and girlie and squeal... My tiara, necklace and earrings, as hand made especially for my by Sweet Chestnut Designs, has arrived!!!!

YAY!!!!

Actually, I had to go and pick them up from the sorting office, as just for once, the post arrived before midday and I was still out at work. Doh!

Naturally I HAD to try them on right away.

The earrings are so sweet! They are smaller than I had pictured in my mind, which is better because they'll look nice and match the dress without distracting from it. I was starting to worry about having massive chandeliers hanging from my ears and getting caught in my hair. But not with these. They're ideal!

The necklace looks spectacular! It's just enough decoration. Simple and clean looking, with the perfect colour match. And it's got an extension chain which means I can make it longer or shorter to suit the dress. I wont know for sure how log to wear it until I see the dress again.

And the tiara.... wow! That's the best word I have for it! It's so delicate looking. And so light. The knot itself looks brilliant. The crystals are a perfect match for the dress. I'm dying to show it off to any one and every one, but I've had to put it away safe and sound. It'll be going down to Mums at the first opportunity.

I can't wait until I can try the whole lot on together, with my hair done and everything!

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
