Isabelle's Christening

It was a beautiful day, full of tradition and family. Just lovely. Lynne and Mark decided on a private ceremony for the christening and I think this made it even more special. I'd never been to a Greek Orthodox Christening, so the (almost) full immersion in the font was a sight to see (and hear, baby Is was not too happy about that!). I felt so proud to be part of it and to have the honour of being Miss Issy's Godmother. Proud as punch! We followed the christening with a delicious lunch with family. (I didn't make my choc pear tart, Isabelle's Yiayia provided some beautiful Greek desserts-yum-but will definitely make it one day this week as a special treat...there goes the diet again!)
