24 Hour Drinking - I told you so!

After all the fuss and hassle over the 24 hour drinking licence, look what's happened.

NOTHING!

Let me show you some quotes from the BBC:

'Business as usual' in city clubsPolice say the first Friday night of 24-hour drinking in Sussex and Surrey passed off peacefully.

Smooth start for 24-hour drinkingNew licensing laws allowing 24-hour drinking begin without the widely predicted violence and bad behaviour.

So, is all went well? Are all the people who where SO against it eating their words?

Cold night deters rowdy drinkersPolice say cold weather in Kent helped the first Friday night with longer pub opening times pass off peacefully.

Weekend 'big test for drink laws'Police say the first weekend of 24-drinking in Kent and East Sussex will be an "unknown quantity" for the force.

Mmmm, so it was just a coincidence that violence etc didn't rise, is it? Well, on the news this morning (not on the bbc site yet), guess what? The SAME APPLIES to the weekend! SHOCK HORROR! Look, we're not all screaming, murderus lunatics because we can drink when ever we want!

And, you see how it says up there "Weekend big test...." blah blah blah. Well, as we seem to have passed that test, the test is now going to be the Christmas period.

For gods sake, the majority of people are sensible, reasonable humans who know how to act socially.

GIVE IT UP! YOU'VE BEEN PROOVED WRONG! 24 HOUR AVAILABLITY OF DRINK DOESN'T MEAN WE'RE GOING TO BE SLOSHED 24 HOURS! YOU LOOSE!

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
