Tiny stuff for tiny people

Two of my favourite ladies are expecting babies any day now. And, as has been well documented before, there's nothing I love more than shopping for small people!

I wasn't able to make it to either friend's baby shower in person, but I had a worryingly fun time selecting presents...

Sophie the giraffe has already proven a pretty big hit with my current number one shortie, so it was definitely time for a repeat purchase.

And there was no way I was letting either of these babies escape without some light reading...

What baby doesn't need a hooded bath towel? With a GIRAFFE on it? And of course, clothes designed for tiny, tiny people are completely irresistible, at least to me.

I can't wait to meet these babies!

Independence Day

I knew it was a good sign when my friend H spotted Jeff Goldblum - driving a Prius, obvs - as she walked over to mine. Yes, the very same Jeff Goldblum who starred in Independence Day. It's fate!

Except then we got talking about Independence Day. And how we were, in fact, helping the Americans celebrate their freedom from us. And some slight jingoistic impulse, combined with rather a large amount of prosecco, led to the singing of some classic British tunes. Like, ahem...

M People.

And PJ and Duncan.

And Robbie Williams.

I'm sure my neighbours love us.

In our defence, we did also eat burgers, and watch fireworks. We at least got part of this 4th of July thing down right...
