    I don't lile thinking about how much it all costs lol... scary!

    We're prettyuch done tbh. Nursery is sorted and all big purchases made.

    Got my baby shower next month so will see what bits I get then and just need to do a big shop nearer the time for nappies etc.

    Surprisingly well organised!!

    Shopping for your little girl is so exciting! 11 weeks to go should be more than enough.
    We've just paid our furniture on Saturday and it will be delivered in 4 weeks. Can't wait to start decorating the room.
    I also bought the white rocker crib from Mothercare. That one is so cute, every time I go to Mothercare I have to look at it again.
    Enjoy shopping today! :) xx

    Just a heads up mothercares curtains are really thin and don't keep much light out. For the same price I went to dunelm mill and got blackout backed nursery curtains and bedding. They have a fab choice glad I went there.
