My Goodness, what a week! I worked so hard to get my niece's wedding invitations ready by mid January, as asked for. Paul delivered them to Georgie & Hartley, and they were delighted with them. Phew!! I got the most wonderful phone call, and she sent Paul home with a beautiful pure white orchid and a bottle of my favourite tipple, ( Courvoisier ).
The next evening I got a phone call to say " auntie T, you were given the wrong post code on the RSVP's . So another early am printing and die cutting the revised RSVP's. All day Monday I was exhausted, but I had to make my card for CE for next week, which I only emailed it to them about an hour ago around 8pm ish
I'm not complaining in any way shape or form, as I'm really looking forward to it, but now I am arranging a baby shower here at home with Anthea, her friend that went through that awful chemo last year.
Anthea is so excited about doing this for Claire. She has given me a list of things that she wants to happen and goodie bags & games, and she is coming down with her son Jake ( our adopted grand son ) and her mum on the Friday and staying over till Sunday, so not to give the surprise away. So Anthea and I will set off for the wholesalers for the food in the afternoon and we will decorate the house that evening. I have already cut out little pink prams and the words baby girl as a bunting to go over the patio doors in the kitchen, and I've bought voile and got some white wire strung fairy lights to make a drape over the double doors into the lounge. Anthea is so enthusiastic you can't help but be swept along with her. Oh crumbs!, I should have ordered a cylinder of helium. Must right a post it note, or we will have the droopiest baby balloons ever. With all that Anthea has been through she is so protective of Claire and wants her to have a very memorable day. She said it's just another memory day that we all get to share together, and we love her for that.
Claire knows she is having a baby shower, but doesn't know when or where, so I hope we do her proud. At the moment it's for 22 people. I think it is going to be a really fun day, can't wait!
I have to thank you all for your dieting tips last week, and I dare say in a week or two I will have gained another 2 stone. Mary I like your style, anymore tips like that and you'll be a friend for life X
Hope you like it!
