It's all go go go - in a calm mumsy way of course...

We're off to a wedding tomorrow, a million miles away - well Wales. Far away Wales. So I'm currently in panic mode that we'll forget anything important; like clothes or shoes, or even the present.

I got my dress today, was a bit alarmed actually in a quiet well try not to worry way, when I had a peek at it in the bag earlier. The fabric is a little crinkly, and it is, well, not a size 10 let's say (oh - yes, the no-carb diet has been forgotten in light of chocolate and wine). But when I finally had a chance to get home and try it on, was very pleased. It could have a touch of the matronly look to it, but with a twinkle in my eye, a Wonderbra, and some lovely green wedge sandals am hoping it is simply a nice dress with a nod to tea dresses of the forties. Either that or I'm fooling myself and it is absolutely matronly, and with two children at my side I'll feel about fifty. (Not that there is anything wrong with fifty - it is just two decades, ok, one and a half decades out).

So I'll be twirling and dancing hopefully, not eating too much in case of matronly tummy bulges and looking after excited children and chatting. Just glad did not buy size smaller dress as it made my boobs look like some floozy's from an ale house in medieval days. Or possibly just stupid.

Wow - have a great time! My worst dress disaster was going to a big family-in-law 'do' with our newborn son, without having cheked if the dress I'd packed buttoned up over my over-endowed boobs. It didn't. I spent the entire party with a baby clutched, upright, across the bulging and straining buttons. I have rather taken against button-up dresses since then...

Ahh, at least you had the protection of baby - hope you managed to swat off any relatives hoping for a cuddle.
And that reminds me of the rubbish advice that whilst breast feeding use your baby to hide your boobs. I guess it all depends on how gigantic your baby's head is.

Hi Bev!
Hope you have a terrific weekend & that all goes to plan!
Take care

PS have difficulty getting out of my head that image of the medieval ale house floozy! Certain scenes from the film Tom Jones (although 18th century) keep coming to mind somehow...!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'm sure you'll look gorgeous.

In deference to the unseasonal heatwave forecast for the bank holiday weekend we're off camping tomorrow.

Yay for camping! And Yay for the floozy look, although admit I went for bigger sized more, 1940's lady style...lovely weekend, even lovelier to be home and sitting down now!
