I did it!

5:07 pm

I went to a shop, I browsed the baby items, and I even bought some things!
I've been thinking about it for a few days,I'd looked online, and talking it over with Woody this morning I got a little tearful, so he suggested I try looking at the baby things in the supermarket first of all to see if I could handle it, I looked, and bleurgh, they were horrible,(but I didn't cry) so after lunch The girls and I ventured into TK Maxx, since they often have a more interesting selection of baby clothing, including the bold sort of styles I prefer.I didn't find a perfect little outfit,but I did find a few sweet little nightgowns, and a couple of bold stripe sleepsuits without feet (I tend to have long skinny babies with big feet.)

So baby boy has some clothes bought just for him, and I did it! ( No one came over and told me to leave the store and take my dead baby germs with me either!)

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. Well done on overcoming your fear. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it must of been for you. (((hugs)))

  2. Well done you, this stuff is never eaay. I admire your courage :D

  3. Well done Jeanette! I've also had strange thoughts about being asked to leave shops because of my dead baby lurgy too!

    I know what you mean about baby clothing, I've struggled to find nice bright things for Jess as I quickly tired of pastel pink. I got some lovely things from Polarn O. Pyret, they're a Swedish shop and they do some lovely bold designs. xo

  4. Well done :) Hope you got some lovely baby boy bits :)

  5. Well done, Jeanette!

    Someone mentions Polarn O Pyret - it is lovely and you can get it from Kendals on Deansgate. I like bold colours too.

  6. Good on you, Jeanette.
    I also prefer bold baby clothes. We got so my pastel blue stuff. Bonds in Australia does fantastic bold coloured baby clothes. I should send you some! Then again, you make much nicer stuff!

  7. Well done Jeanette for taking the plunge. I buy a lot of "boy" stuff from TKMaxx, they often have Molo footless sleepsuits, also Katvig and Me Too (all Scandinavian brands - lovely colours and prints) much much cheaper than in other places.

    PoP does lovely Swedish - style stuff too (in House of Fraser, deansgate) pricier than TKMaxx but lovely :D


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
