Well... I did a full day at MM today - first one in ages. And it was ok. The morning was hellish while I turned over in my head what I was going to say to Glenn. After all, by the start od April my own business will be trading properly, and I can't keep taking days off MM to do BH stuff.

At lunch time I bit the bullet. I went and got us both lunch and then sat in Andrea's chair (Andrea's desk faces Glenn, and since she's on holiday it was free).

Here's how I span it:

"I've been offered another job"

Glenn looks up and pauses mid chew

"It's one I can't really turn down, but..."

Glenn swollows"

I'll still be able to work here Mondays and Thursdays to do the ebay and web site stuff"

Glenn sigh and smiles - "Oh, right! So when will this start?"

"April 1st"

"Right... that's a Friday, so you'll be starting your new regeme from the.... 4th?"

"Yep"

"Oh, that's ok, right, yes, mm mmm. Ok then."

So that was easy enough. I think I chose the right lie to tell him. And it covers me all round. I'm still earning (much less, but still earning) while BH takes off, I've not left Glenn in the lurch, and if BH goes tits up, I still have a job!

Hooray!

After that the rest of the day went smoothly. I'm just waiting on my bank details to arrive and I can move onto the next stage. Phew!

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
