News from the Wedding Party

It's been a few days since we've had an update, but we are all very worried about Mark, our best man. A few days ago while visitig friends in Nottingham, he suffered a huge asthma attack and heart attack and is in hospital down there. Coops, a friend of ours, has been down to see him, and took Marks mum too, but for now he is the only one able to get down to see him and we're waiting for an up-date from him. Fingers crossed that he will be ok!

My best friend and maid of honour called me this evening. It's her wedding in October and she's off to a wedding fair tomorrow. Funds being what they are at the moment there is no way I can afford to go with her, but I'm sure she'll collect loads of stuff for us both to look at later. She's going to try to visit in a couple of weeks when we all have a bit more cash.

She thinks she has found a maid-of-honour dress for me to wear at her wedding, apparently so perfect that she almost bought it there and then just hoping that I would like it! But in all fairness, what ever she chooses for me to wear I'll be happy with. It's her day, and I trust her not to make me look stupid! She's also icked out her flowers today, red roses and some rare orchides! Her daughters will be carrying white roses, and she's planning on petals for confetti rather than the paper stuff. Sounds great!

Sadly the phone call was cut short when her youngest fell over and knocked her face against something. Poor little mite was in a state, so we'll talk again soon to arrange her coming over, and for me going over there too to see her venue!

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
