As you can see the banner part of my blog has had a little make-over... thanks to the lovely Sarah at Shabbychicsarah. I have admired her banner for quite some time now, as it looks so lovely and professional. I then saw that Cuckoo had asked about it, so I also thought I could ask how to make a banner like it myself. But as I am somewhat lacking in computer skills and adobe photoshop... Sarah sent me an e-mail kindly offering to make a banner for me. She asked me what colours and photo's I'd like to have on it and then got to work, it was so nice of her and I really am very grateful. Thanks Sarah!
Right, onto the events of the weekend!
Fortunately for us as well as her, Rose's teething pain eased up quite a bit over the weekend. This meant that we were able to go and stay at our friends for the weekend for a BBQ and to spend some time with them on the Sunday.
I had actually texted them on the Friday afternoon to say we weren't going to be able to make it as Rose was as cranky as ever and I thought I should give them some warning if we weren't going to make it so someone else could stay in the spare room. But she replied saying we should just saying see how it goes over-night and thank goodness, Rose slept through that whole night... until 8am! I couldn't believe it! So we decided to still go stay over the weekend and I'm so glad we did as we had such a lovely time and as they're getting married soon, it was really nice to catch-up.
Rose here.. enjoying the sunshine whilst Mummy enjoys a glass of Pimms! :-) I don't know why I bother putting shoes on her little feet. It doesn't matter how many toys she has surrounding her, she always goes for the velcro on the shoes!
She seems much much happier now, a few grizzly moments. But nothing that a little Calpol and teething powders won't help me with..! Thank you so much for all of the advice everyone gave me on my last post.. I was feeling pretty stressed and it was so good to be reminded that other people have also gone through the terrible teething times also. I rushed out and bought every single teething product that was recommended! haha
I also managed to get a little hooky time on the journey over there which was lovvveelly. Haven't had much time for that over the last few day's with miss grumpy! I'm following the Attic24 pattern for some granny squares, I've decided to make another baby blanket for Rose. I love the ripple blanket but as we use it everyday, it would be nice to have one to alternate it with... not only for washing, but so I have something different to look at.
Okay, off to bed now incase I'm not so lucky tonight with Rose sleeping through...
