Elfie Style

Style: Stripy Sunday

June 5, 2011

I can’t be the only person to co-ordinate my outfits with my baby’s? Our favourite to match (OK, my favourite) is blue and white stripes and we also have matching American Apparel hoodies. It’s bad. She’ll hate me when she’s older. Our Sunday mood was almost ruined by a faceplanting incident, but she got over it with some hugs and toys. Look how cute she still is, even when she’s howling. Her cuteness really is supernatural.…

A Family Wedding

May 31, 2011

I can’t tell you how amazing it is to have so many people tell you how perfect your child is at an occasion like a wedding. Will’s little sister got married last friday and it was an extra special occasion as he was walking her down the aisle.

It’s no secret that I found the first portion of motherhood pretty hard, especially with the health issues she experienced. They’re still ongoing (the health stuff, not the finding motherhood hard bit!) but we’re able to cope now and we have the bonus support of Elfie’s Grannie and Grumpy around the corner from us now. You can take Elfie…

A Royal Wedding Move

May 6, 2011

You probably noticed that I didn’t write anything about the Royal Wedding. OK. Maybe you didn’t, but I did. When I was a little girl I used to think I actually had a chance of getting married to Prince William. Every little girl wants to marry a Prince and I used to think it could be me. Really. I’m not sure how down he would have been with me working at VICE, the binge drinking and my strop habit, but…
