Giving notice

Yesterday we "gave notice" on our wedding! It seems like such a big step forwards in the planning of the wedding, and it is a really important one too!

11am we rolled up at Lancasters registrar with £60.00 to hand over to ask for permission to marry.

The lady we spoke to seemed very nice, I forget her name though. She ran through all the stuff with us, explaining that it would seem a bit strange as she asked up both the same set of questions individually, and took our different bits of ID off us to enter into the system.

Funny how if you're a little bit on edge the simplest of questions leave you dumbstruck... like: "How old were you on your last birthday" when both of us went "UUmmmm....." and forgot how old we are. Not how old each other were, how old we are ourselves!

All the good stuff, like each others full names, birthdays etc we were ok with (And Yorkie went first and STILL remembred my details without prompting! A rare skill in a man I think).

After 25 minutes we were done, she shook our hands, took our money, and assured us that so long as no one put in a valid complaint about the wedding in the next 16 days we were good to go!

There's less than a year to go now before the "big day" and it's feeling more and more real with every little thing that happens. The next thing to look farward to is the pack we'll get through the post when the 16 days is up, then we can choose our vows and so on!

Embroidery for my dress!


That top bit there! Isn't it wonderful???

You might have to click and enlarge it to see this, but there are crystals in it too.

Juvy - my dress lady - has just been on the phone to me about what colour to have the crystals. I'm going for a dark green, to match Yorkie's suit and the general theme of the wedding, but I have to go and find some ribbon or something in the right shade to send to her to match the colour.

I'm thrilled with it because there is little or no difference between that design and that on our rings!

YAY!

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
