Baby Shower

Spoiled again... And completely blindsided by my mates with this one. Jill had invited me over this weekend ages ago to have a celebratory lunch on my first day of post-work-freedom. I'd toyed with the idea of doing my hair nice and slapping a bit of make-up on, but thought "Nah... Jill'll understand that the last thing I an be bothered doing is tarting myself up" (She's also pregnant) so just tied my hair back and went out with a flaky, un-moisturised and un-made-up face, maternity jeans and baggy jumper.

Of course when Gary dropped me off there it's not only Jill, but Jen and Sarah and Fran too, with banners and posters up for "Chiglets baby Shower", a table laden with gifts and a buffet in the kitchen!

We had a great afternoon, with mum-of-two Jen, Mum-of-one-and-one-on-way Jill, and first-bun-in-oven-me freaking out Fran and Sarah with stories of pregnancy, child-birth and motherhood in all it's glory! We stuffed our faces and drank about a million cups of caffeine-free tea.... and then came the prezzies!

Wiggle's done good again, a host of adorable outfits featuring bunnies, sheep and giraffes, and even a little jacket with a puppy-dog hood (with ears!), and snuggle toys. I also got a baby book to record those precious moments and some pamper stuff for me.

I will get round to taking a photo of some of these gifts we're getting at some point, I'm just feeling massive and lazy at the moment. But in the meantime: THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
