Feeling deflated

Shopping went ok. Got my mum, John, Bob. Jenny and Dave sorted. I've got something for Jacs and David, Yorkie's got some of what he wanted for Tony, and I have a good idea of what to get Fay. That's a big chunk of it out of the way.

The snows gone now though. Figures, it never lasts long here. Too close to the sea maybe. But my real downer is about tonight. Debs is coming over, hopefully with Marie, for some drinks and a take away. But Andrea can't make it, neither can Jill or Fran, and I can't get hold of Sarah, so it's going to be a quiet night. Still, I'm sure we'll still have fun. I don't know Deb and Marie very well, so I guess this is the time to get to know them. I get a feeling that Yorkie's going to be off and hiding first chance he gets (Even though Debs works with him, and is technically "his friend" before she's mine), and I am more than a little nervuse. Nothing to worry about though I bet.

They'll be here in a little over 2 hours. Everything's clean and tidy, I have drinks in, and some snacks and chocs to see us through till we get the food. I was going to get a DVD or something for us to watch, but like I said, I don't know them very well, and don't know what they'd want to watch. Having said that, we do have DVDs of our own, and if we want to watch a film we can choose from them, or find on one sky. But I'm hoping that we'll just get to nattering and it wont matter. Jez, I hate planning nights in when I don't know people! Nights out aren't so bad, you just get hammered, and if conversation drys up, you suggest a new bar and move on! I think I'll start off with a music channel to start with, and see how conversation goes.

*cringe*

Why am I so nervous???

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
