The engagement party was actually quite nice in the end for all my bitching about it. Littlemissperfect's baby looked very overfed in the way so many bottlefed babies do and spent most of the evening screaming. I hate to be smug about breastfeeding (oh.. ok I don't) but I never had any of my babies scream like that for hours, so meh! All the babies and pregnant people didn't actually bother me half as much as I thought they would. Even the cousin showing off his shiny new Range Rover didn't bother me...I felt sorry for him and his car fuel bills, those things drink lol!
It was also cool because my Mum and Lil brother came all the way from Wales to be there, and even my evil stepfather was quite entertaining and did a nice little speech and a toast for me. Mum made me THE MOST AWESOME CAKE!! It did have the letters of our names on the top but they got broke in the car, bah! Top tier was sponge and the bottom fruit, I did have good intentions of keeping the bottom half for Christmas but I've given in already. Dammit she's so talented, when I grow up I want to be just like my Mum.
This cheered me up...it tasted as good as it looked too nom nom nom :D
