Preparations for a big day

We’re getting both the children christened at the end of the month. We’ve arranged the service, the god-parents, the gifts, a hotel for us all, and a great big family meal to finish it all off. All that’s left are the clothes.

The toddler has a lovely pair of smart trousers and a shirt. His sister has a pretty cream dress, her first pair of shoes, and a cardigan. My husband always looks smart in trousers and a shirt. Which just leaves me. I’ve seen some really pretty summer dresses but it just doesn’t feel right to wear a dress in this wet and windy weather.

I’m really looking forward to our weekend away. We’re having the christening in the same church we got married at and having lunch afterwards at the place we had our reception.

On our last visit we went and had a chat with the vicar who was so lovely. He did say one thing which has really stayed with me, that only now his grown up children have left home does he feel like he and his wife have their lives back. Oh my goodness. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not! I keep wondering what me and my husband will talk about once the children have left home, I’m not sure I’d want my old life, pre-children, back.

Oh well. Here’s to a fantastic weekend. The only thing I’ve treated myself to so far is a new Orla Kiely shadow stem wash bag from Zalando. Its pretty smart so I might use it to carry nappies and wipes instead of a toothbrush. Now I just need to find something to wear!
