    Yesterday I thought that my hubby and I were meeting a friend and her boyfriend for a drink, some food and a catch up as we hadn't seen them for a while. Little did I know it was all a complete decoy!

    We arrived at Revolutions bar and when we got there he told me that apparently the till had broken so we had to go and sit upstairs. When we got up there waiting in the VIP room were about 25 of my female friends - he had spent the last 3 months organising me a secret

    I had no idea so it was a total suprise, I burst into tears and couldn't believe how many people were there. We played some games and had some food platters, cocktails and mocktails for the other pregnant ladies there

    DH's bosses girlfriend had made the most AMAZING Cake for us. It was a chocolate buttercream iced sponge. It had a seperate dome on the top which is also made of icing it had little stars cut out of it and round the outside it had all the jungle family characters which match the bedding and the moses basket we have brought for the baby around the edge and minature parrots (again all made of icing) scattered over the dome - she had taken them from the wall freeze which you can buy in Mothercare and hand cut them.

    Inside the dome there was a little baby on a blanket and also a little camera as she knows I am into photography, again all made of icing.

    She had then hand cut the words "Shaz and Dave and Baby C makes a Jungle Family" around the base of the cake in different colours.

    We got so many lovely presents for both me and the baby :baby: A friends mum had knitted a gorgeous blanket, another lady had hand made us a silk and cotton patchwork quilt. We had toilettries, clothes, bibs, blankets, toys - just so many things I was completely overwhelmed and all my friends joked that for the first time ever they saw me lost for words :haha:

    DH had even been in touch with some of my BnB friends and invited them to the baby shower so I got to meet the lovely Tulip, BeanieBaby and Tickled Pink for the first time. Some of the other ladies from here who couldn't make it sent him messages which he had stuck in a guestbook that who everyone was there signed. I've been reading through all the messages in there this morning and it's had me in tears again (happy ones of course) :)

    Hats off to all of them for managing to keep it a secret as I am quite on the ball usually. I blame my addled baby brain for my lack of detection :blush:

    I feel so lucky to have such an amzing hubby and friends - people had travelled from all over the UK to come and it was such a fantastic suprise certainly made my Saturday afternoon a memorable one :thumbup: :cloud9:

    You too hun :)

    Am looking forward to meeting up once we are both on maternity - scary to think we will be in the very final stretch then :eek:

    I still can't get over the cake. The lady is thinking of going into business making them and I have told that she should do as I am sure she would do well. can only just make a basic sponge cake so have nothing but awe for people who can make such creations!

    We have half a chocolate cake sat here though so if anyone wants a slice! :haha:
