Family

Had quite a busy weekend!

Spent most of Saurday in town, after dropping Yorkie off at work I ordered some flowers to be made up for my Nan (She was 80 on Tuesday) and then went to buy birthday prezies for our nephews - and popped into Lancaster Market to set up the FTP for them. Although, they said they know all about FTP, so why didn't they do it them selves??? Instead of me working on a saturday for nothing!

On Sunday we got up bright and early and headed of to St, Helens to see my Nan. We spent a few hours with her, having a natter and catching up with my Family gossip (I never see any of them thanks to my dad! *Spit*). Turns out Nan became a great grandma 9 months ago. Cousin Anita had a little boy (nice of any one to tell me - DAD!). She liked her flowers and gave me a huge food processor for my birthday O_o

Then we drove down the Sheffield to see Rachel and her lads. Chris was 3 on the 24th last month - but we were at Fran & Simons wedding, so we couldn't make that, and Nick will be 1 on Wednesday, so we had a little celebration. Yorkie and Rachels's mum didn't turn up, one of her new cats is having fits, and there was no sign of their dad either, who only lives round the courner. Neither did their sister Janny show up! But Bob did with his new missus Alex (Bright pink hair! She's great!) Their (now former) step-dad Tony came over though. I like Tony! We stay with him when we visit for a few days. Although, he did say to me again that "Robert" (Brother Bob) was "his". Although no one else seems to know this..... And Bob was 6 when Dad moved out. I think I'd rather not be told!

We got home latish on Sunday and flopped for the rest of the night, before heading back to work work work today......

Oh, but my birthday prez off Yorkie arrived today. I can't have it until my ACTUAL birthday - but it needs testing, you know, make sure everythings ok.... I'll need to leave feedback on eBay after all..... Heehee!

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
