'tis the start of wedding season
we've just come back from a lovely week in london staying with j's younger brother and his wife. some good friends of ours are getting married this march. the first of a few weddings we're going to in the next few months. so with baby stan tucked up in bed and daddy on duty, my sister in law and i got our glad rags on and headed off into the night for the hen do. it was a burlesque dinner and dance. there were some amazing hairdo's, great swing dancing going on, and some really dressed up people. i do love people watching! we chatted with the other girls taking it all in whilst sipping on gin rickeys. really good fun and so nice to catch up with friends that i don't get to see that often.
the actual wedding is in two weeks and i am slowly working on a gift for the lovely couple. well i say slowly. it's more like, i had an idea of what i wanted to do, but so far i've spent hours just looking at the fabric i've chosen. i think i better get my skates on!
oh and finally. my new favourite thing...
my mothers day present. it was such a lovely surprise and apparently baby stan chose it himself! the necklace is by dagrow morvorenn, which means mermaids' tears in cornish and it's made out of sea glass. I love it!
