Tell me these teeny tiny booties don't make you clucky....
They are the clever design and handiwork of lovely fellow blogger Annie from Knitsofacto. I first fell in love with her original teeny tiny knitted version of the Mary Jane's back in March.
She then designed the above "Jubilee" booties for a Giveaway she hosted in honour of the Queen's Jubilee. I entered the giveaway thinking of a few friends with babies on the way. I was super excited to be the lucky winner so they are currently on route to Tasmania all the way from Wales.
However, the booties will no longer need to leave our home as we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new little addition of our own towards the end of November/early December.
I can't tell you how excited I am, despite feeling like I've been slapped around with a bag of oranges for the last couple of months. I hope this goes a little way in explaining my lack of blogging of late.
Since finding out that I'm expecting baby number 5 I've been drawn to lots of 'signs'. It's strange how being in a situation puts some things in sharper focus than they otherwise would be. Like when I found out I was having twins it seemed like everywhere I went I suddenly saw a set of twins where I hardly noticed any before. Now I'm seeing things with the number 7, like this advertisement on the back of my friends magazine the other day.
I'm not sure whether they have based their slogan on vast market research but I'll happily accept that 7 is an adventure.
Are you a family of 7 or come from a family of 7? Do you agree with Mercedes-Benz's slogan? Can I please have your number on speed dial?
Have a great extra-special Queen's Jubilee Birthday long weekend!
