Yesterday was funny day. It began with brunch at Harvester with Husband and Little E. I did think it was a little odd as Husband and I were going out for dinner but it meant a Full English so I didn't voice any complaints! I then had to rush over to see my Bestie's new house and help her measure up. Only when I got there the estate agent had cancelled last minute - so we sat outside relandscaping the front garden in our minds for half an hour before I toddled off home to find all my family and friends of the female persuasion in my front room and a smug looking husband about to take off to leave us all to it.
I was immediately informed that second time mums get a baby sprinkle rather than a shower which I found rather amusing! The idea is that you focus a bit more on the mum as they are already worn out, shells-of-their-former-selves due to raising baby number one. Sounds about right! My sisters-in-law had organised lots of games, my favourites being the taste and identify the jarred baby food flavour (worryingly the only one anyone could identify was cauliflower cheese) and guess the baby photo which involved everyone bringing an anonymous baby photo along and us all guessing who was who - a hard challenge as 20 odd babies look surprisingly familiar! There was lots of food courtesy of Husband (Sainsbury's party platters) and cupcakes galore made by my Bestie (yes, she did make it along after the fake house viewing ruse!) and my six year old niece/godaughter Big E.
I was thoroughly spoiled with lots of presents for Bump and pamper bits for me. My favourites being a 'I love my big sister' vest for bump and some super comfy looking yoga pants for after my C section.
What a super Husband, family and bunch if friends I have. Super lucky girl. #MagicMoments
