As most of my close friends and family will know I am not the most religious person, I believe in aspects of the bible and of christ, but what I believe in more is having something to believe in from any religion or faith.
I am not saying or even getting into a debate on religion or the whys and wherefores I think its a super personal choice and I personally think that although I am not massively religious I do like to think I have a moral and ethical stance that on a whole that makes me a good person (although make sure I am regularly refilled with Pepsi Max or it maybe a slightly different story)
So a few months ago one of my besties (Stacey) asked me to become Freya’s Godmother I was extremely honoured. Having known how important this decision would be for me and also knowing Stacey as well as I do I know she will have really thought about this before making her final decisions so I was over the moon.
Yesterday it was time to step up to the honourable job of becoming Freya’s godmother and it was great to be stood there next to my other friend Deb and be Godmothers together! in fact there were a few of us as Freya was christened with her cousin Jack so there were a few godparents in attendance!
The Christening service was really fantastic with a fab vicar who made it a light hearted and less formal affair without losing the significance of what the day was about.
There was a colouring table at the back and even a room off the side with some childrens things in as he believes that taking a fractious child out of church only instills in them a negativity! .. it was very refreshing and so nice to feel you were welcome with little children.
After the service we went on to The White Hart Inn which is the same location as Stacey and Simon had for their wedding reception! so it was lovely to go back and revisit, its such a lovely place.
We had a really lovely afternoon catching up with Debs and her hubby Kev and of course the lovely Stacey and Simon.
I am very proud to say I am Freya’s Godmother.
