And I have only ever been invited to three. The first time I made up some fabulous and possibly far-fetched excuse. The second one cancelled 'cos she couldn't be arsed with a load of drunk women in her living room when she was sober and 8 months pregnant. The third one is on Sunday. The other half says I have to go. It's his nephew's girlfriend. His family will be offended if I make up another wild excuse. To be fair I really like her. But honestly? A baby shower? What's the point? I don't get it?
Anyway I have now resigned myself to the fact that my Sunday afternoon will be wasted and have dredged up a bit of enthusiasm with the creation of a fabulous gift. The baby will be a girl and her nursery will be fully kitted out in Mamas and Papas Scrapbook. As the brilliant Auntie who created these characters it was only right I should make a bespoke little t-shirt for the little flower.
I will of course tell her not to wash it cos it will, no doubt, be ruined. The edges will fray and the print bits will more than likely come off. Probably best therefore that she doesn't actually wear it! Great present Auntie Dawn!
