I haven’t really got the hang of “layering” necklaces, though it’s a look I really like. Whenever I try it, everything gets tangled up in one big ugly rope of cheap metal.
But this combination works, sort of. The neon of the “yay” hasn’t come up here very well – it is much brighter and more fun in real life – and the sentiment is entirely at odds with my mood here. The kids are ill, I’m ill, husband ill, Sam up in the night (obviously), local foxes raping each other outside my bedroom window at 3am, combined with a bout of unexpected, disconcerting and frankly impractical menorrhagia (do not Google it) has left me feeling like a squeezed lemon.
That is the terrific thing about this necklace, though, it can either be a genuine YAY or an ironic YAY. The English language is a wonderful thing.
I GOOGLED IT!!!!! waaaaaahhhhh poor you, how rude. Cute necklace though x
it’s SO RUDE…

Esther, if you think you’re done with having babies the mirena coil’s your answer. Godsend.
I am toying with the idea
Alas, I didn’t need to google it :o( You have my sympathies, hugely annoying xxx
I wikipedia’d it – seemed safer somehow. Hope the household is less grotty in a few days. Do love the necklace! x

tip on how to stop necklaces knotting together… connect the fastenings. The little hooky things, do them up together so they are kind of like one necklace at the back (don’t know how else to explain without a shit diagram) hope that helps!
Sarah that’s a great tip! thanks x
Single fastening on the necklaces has worked well for me. I have had menorrhagia ( no need to Google — in the States, they call it “break out bleeding” — yuck). My doctor changed my birth control script (needed more Estrogen). It did the trick. Good luck!!
break out bleeding!!!! yikes.
I had this when I had a hormone imbalance that was caused by work stress and managing a testy two and whingeatron five year old. Hope you got your bloods done!
