what should I spend it on??

am nearly 37, about to have dc3, will be bfing this winter. Am 5'10" and probably around a size 12 until the baby weight is off.

things I don't own but am contemplating include a waterproof coat/ jacket of some description and a check shirt - but am open to suggestions!! Doesn't have to be £30 or under, mind - can make up the difference.

cheers smile

I can't see it - is it that poncho?

I could only see the poncho too?

Thing is, I have a cashmere cardi and a cashmere wrap for warmth and discretion (!!) so I think something else might be a better option ... any other ideas?

cashmere for baby? Then step away from the Boden and M&S and get back to Net-a-porter wink

You're right!! maybe should just spend it on homewares. Have already ventured over to the dark side once this week .. don't want to head down the slippery slope.

Have soooooo much baby stuff already, really can't imagine buying anything else .... maybe I'll my mum a present to say thanks for coming over for a month to help out. Then again, she is probably the one who bought me the gift card in the first place!!!

Pressie for your mum sounds good. I'm trying not to go down slipperly slope to middle-age. Tis my birthday today and swear I saw another grey hair this morning!

Happy Birthday!!! wow, September is a big month for you, lots going on!! Hope you've had a lovely day.

This will cheer you up - is it unrealistic to imagine myself wearing these to receive guests who have come to meet the new baby? Am living in slight denial about the surfboard-sized sanitary towel wedged beneath them ....
