Well I’m back. After fighting the dreaded kidney infection I’m now on antibiotics and feeling much more human again. I’m a little bit disappointed that I ruined my winning streak of posting everyday but I suppose these things happen. I guess I left you hanging on a few things from last weekend, didn’t I? Sorry about that.
Right before the infection got really bad, I remember to take an outfit pic of what I wear to work like some of you had been asking for. I shall post it later this week, but for now I’ll get back into what I was going to be posting at the end of last week.
Let’s start with the baby shower. Cos who doesn’t love all that mushy stuff?
It was such a lovely day to honour my beautiful friend Karen who is pregnant with her first child (I reckon it’s a girl…just saying…) Karen is married to Paulie, double bass player of the Ten Fours (and about a million other bands) and they are the sweetest couple. I’m so happy for them and I can’t wait to see their little family grow with a beautiful little bubba.
Although the day was quite hot, the weather was beautiful and sunny with a slight breeze to cool things off. The baby shower was held at Franklin Villa which is basically a beautiful historic Queenslander converted into a guest house famous for its lovely high tea sittings. We enjoyed the afternoon sitting and it was such a lovely, fancy, girlie experience.
We were served the cutest little selection of hot and cold, sweet and savoury petites on stunning little 4-tiered stands and tea and coffee on beautiful old china. Being the rockabilly crew, all us ladies were also dressed in our vintage finest and the two older ladies who own the place were just enamoured with our party of fancy ladies.
After enjoying our afternoon tea we played a couple of games. We all had to write on a calendar when we think Karen will have the baby including what time, whether it will be a boy or a girl and what weight it will be. There was also a giant baby bottle full of gummi bears that we had to guess the weight of. I won over a kilo of gummi bears! Still don’t know what I’m going to do with them all!
Then of course it was time for Karen and Baby B to get spoiled with lots of beautiful gifts. I can tell this is going to be one spoiled and much loved baby! Sadly I believe this is when the infection first started taking hold as I had a terrible headache and wasn’t feeling the best so I didn’t stay for much longer.
But I absolutely can’t wait for beautiful Baby B to be born! It’s so very exciting!
