Shoe madness!

I suspect I am one of only a few women in the world who doesn't have a shoe fetish. I have shoes, probably more than I need, but that's only because I am a horder and don't throw them away when they really should be chucked. I like to think that I can get them re-heeled or what ever and keep on wearing them but rarely do. In use I have a pair of trainers, a pair of backless pale bue pumps, a pair of black boots. I did have some brown boots that I loved but have recently pulled hte heel off the right foot (oops - damed steep hills and ice! They were a bad choice that day)

So when last night I got a text message from my step mum asking if my wedding dress maker had told me to bring my wedding shoes on Sunday I was a little stunned.

  1. I haven't really thought about shoes yet
  2. I'm not going to wear them for anther 15 - 16 months
  3. No one will see them under the dress anyway
Now, I know that shoes were mentioned last time I was there... something about heel hight. I only really wear two kinds of heel; flat or 1 1/2 inch. So I guess I'll be pluming for the 1 1/2 inch heel, but the thought of actually already having the shoes came as a shock. So I texted Fay back and said "I hope not because I haven't got them" to which she responded "We'll buy some Sunday morning"

What the hell am I going to do with these shoes between now and then? I am the kind of person who will damage or loose them between now and the big day. I suppose I could totter round in them for a bit to break them in so I'm not in foot-agony on the big day... that makes sence I suppose, but I must remember not to go driving in them (a sure-fire way to ruin heels) or do the house work in them (Ack! Bleach!) or do any baking in them (that's how I ruined my slippers, covered in Doh!). I'm thinking about leaving them with my mother, who is a very tidy and organised person and will keep them safe and clean.

I do like to be prepeared well in advance for looking good. I'm the kind of girl who plans an outfit for a night out three days ahead so that I only need 20 mins to get ready to go out (which impresses my feller), but 16 month ahead planning for SHOES?

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
