What's it all about, Alfie?
I'm VERY happy to announce that last week (9th November) I became a Great Auntie for the first time to my niece Laura's newborn baby Alfie... and here's the photo to prove it!
We went to see him at the weekend and he was just the most perfect little bundle of baby, all quiet and peaceful. Bless. I never thought I'd become a great auntie at the age of 39 (even though I've been an auntie since the age of 14). Someone I know recently joked that I was far too young: apparently great aunts smell of mothballs, have ten cats and keep furry mints in their handbags. Well, I'm sorry to disappoint on all counts; I do keep mints (chewing gum) in my bag but they ain't furry!
I thought I'd dress up for our first meeting to impress the little man (no weekend jeans for a change) and clash my patterns again, this time a vintage floral dress and polkadots. And I'm showing off my new metallic loafers from Asos: LOVE them!
Congratulations to my niece Laura and Alex: Alfie was just perfect and I wish you all the best (what a lovely family you all make) xoxo

I'm linking up to my first Thursdays are for Thrifters at Spunky Chateau - I think my thrifted (eBay) dress and belt fit the bill!
