Alan

The key for the till mysriously reappeared in a locked draw this morning... along with the missing stamp bag. But the till draw had been tampered with and wouldn't close properly... Mmm... Something dodgy going on. I jut hope they dont try to pin it on me - with me being a temp and everything.

Having said that the day hasn't been too bad at all. A new till arrived which proved to be further fun and games. Our branch has won a 'best sales' award as so we all get a bottle of wine, even me! And I got invited tot he staff x-mas do, even though I wont be there for x-mas. Aint that sweet?

Made a new life long friend today too. One of the regulars, Alan Hawksworth, 72, enlisted my help in installing a CD copying program called CloneCD (which I happen to know a little about) on his computer. I swore I was only going to be there for 10 mins, 30 at the most. I was there ALL AFTERNOON! But he's a really interesting bloke. Been married three times, lived in 12 countries, got family that wont speak to him for all kinds of reasons, known all kinds of famous people. Bless the poor old lad, he's really lonely. I'm the first visiter he's had in what sounds like years. He's given me some fantastic photo quailty printer paper for helping him out, and unfortunatly he also gave me a couple of the CDs we copied - a Charlotte Church and some other guy I've never even heared of! He wants me to come round again some time soon and bring Yorkie with me too, but I doubt that he'll go somehow!

Left there sometime between 3 and 4 and ten waked the miles and miles to Asda to buy the food in for tomorrows 'big meal'. By the time I got there I was knackered! Yorkie'd been ringing me, worried that I'd got lost or hurt or something since he was expecting me home at 3. I didn't get in till about half 5!!!

My feet hurt!

Not much else going on. Chris has ccome round to see Jen, poor lads off work sick. And that's about it really.

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
