I HATE STAMP COLLECTORS!

Ok.. maybe hate is a strong word, but I am seriously unhappy with some of them. You see, working in the post office shop - and today being the day when the new collectable stamps have come out, I have been ever so slightly inundated with stamp collectors. Unfortunatly, I have never sold any of these special packs before, don't really know where they are all kept or how to key them into the till. It's not that I haven't been trained propely as such, but I haven't been told where EVERYTHING was, and some of the PLUs were missing. So it all went tits up and I had to call for help three times while I had a crowd of irate customers muttering about how think sales girls are.

I HAVE A DEGREE! I AM NOT THICK! I JUST HATE RETAIL!

But aside from that the days been ok - had a couple of upperty customers, but nothing I can't handle.

When I got home Yorkie had been to the pub with Ray (Sulk, I wanted to go too and he was home when I got back - pout). Stuart (Yorkie's mate from college) was over when I got home so we've had a night of Dragon Quest and other such RPG nattering. Although I'm not sure why we were looking at Russian Mail Order Brides for so long. Yorkie keeps blaming Ray, but I don't believe a word of it. I recon they just wanted to look at cheap totty.

I am now awaiting a reply on a possible job at Business 1st in Lancaster. I sent my CV to them the other day and got a call of them yesterday lunch time, but we didn't get the message until about 10 last night. I tried to call them back today but he was busy. I emailed him back about arranging an interview and really hoped I would have a reply when I came home from work today but I didn't. So please cross your fingers for me!

LET ME OUT OF RETAIL!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
