MM Update, and Urban Mammoth Rant

So I went to MM today, and sure enough bossman was there. Very impressed that he's actually stuck to this "I will be in" thing. Normally I would never believe him, but there you go. He's still being nice as pie to me - of cause he knows I'll have read his little email by now.........
And he's actually given me some proper work to do for the first time in months! I have been given 25 games to sell on our new ebay shop, and a stack of games workshop lord of the rings box sets to shift on auction too. So if you're in the UK, like LOTR, XBox or PS2, have a look here and bid on something!
Please! Keep me employed until my business can support me! Lol.....
D's still not been able to fix Yorkie's PC. He's still not been able to pin point exactly what's wrong with it yet which is rather worrying as he is one of the few people I trust with the inner working of my mechanical babies! Still, I have faith. I'm sure he'll sort it out as soon as he can. He does have a queue of jobs waiting to be done though so I can't hassle him too much.
I tried to get some info out of bossman about if he's been to see SB lately. He was very vauge about it... said he'd seen her daughter (the one he used to be engaged to) and her new baby, and he's seen SB's hubby, but not her. Mmmm... Interesting!
June, the new book keeper, is still keeping very much to herself. The time I spent in the MM office today was very quiet indeed. I think even bossman has given up trying to be buddies with her. She's very sensible, sticking to her professional role in that place. That's where me and Andrea fell down, trying to be friends with evil people! I'm just impressed that she's still there. She must have an idea of the problems in that place by now!
I'm having some more hassle with MY OWN business today too. Which I am REALLY mad about! It seems that Urban Mammoth are no longer stocking Ziterdes terrain. Which I happen to love. Which I happen to sell a lot of. Which I happen to have an outstanding order of over £150! And which they KNEW about before christmas and only told me they couldn't fulfill TODAY!
So I am heavily pissed off about that. I have demanded that they TRY to find at least SOME of the order, I have emailed the Ziterdes people themselves in an attempt to find a new supplier, and contacted my other suppliers to see if they wil consider stocking it.
I just hope I get some soon, it's a big order to have to refund!

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
