Baby Shower, a set on Flickr.

Baby shower! And yes, even though they didn’t tawk about being “in the family way” in those days  – for the mere suggestion alone that men and women got all kissy and stuff in the bedroom could lift the bonnet right off their heads – we went and had a Jane Austenesque shower anyhoo.

Had a gloriously chi-chi time of it at Mrs Jenning’s home. Very la-di-da, with actual drawing in drawing rooms and needlework! Very impressive show from Mrs Kirkpatrick, Mrs Jennings, Miss Rachael, Miss Laura and lil’ Miss Lily. These photos don’t do it justice, but it’s all I have for now…
