This weekend, I reached a significant rite of passage; my first baby shower!
My eldest sister E is just two weeks away from her due date but we managed to fit in one last celebration with bump in tow. My sister B and I were in charge, and invited close friends and family for a pub lunch at The Windmill, Somersham. It was such a lovely afternoon! The pub filled up with ladies nattering away, bouncing babies on knees and after lunch we cut slices of this delicious creation from Tom’s Cakes to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee while E opened her beautifully wrapped parcels, filled with toys, blankets and tiny little baby-grows.
I didn’t sense a moment of silence – even as our sophisticated rabble of ladies, babies, prams and presents exited the pub everybody was chattering and laughing away – a true sign of a good party!
