Stuff for Tara's Hen Night

Weerrrrr the colours a bit off on that photo!

So this is part of my get-up for Saturday Night and Tara's hen night.

She's having a Titanic themed murder mystery night and we're all going dressed as flappers!

I've got myself a (rather dodgy) short black wig (which is giving me a serious headache trying to keep on over my long hair), a headband with feathers, some big red beads and matching bracelet.

I've raided my wardrobe for loose fitted long back top, and a two layered mid-calf white skirt with floral print, which togther with the beads are close enough for me! I draw the line at fringe!

Although, right now, I am stuffed full of a cold. A nasty one at that. The back of my throat is red raw, my nose it stuffed up and snotty, my sinouses are killing me and I keep sneezing. I spent all of yesterday sleeping on the settee in the frount room (with the exception of Darren calling round for a few mins to pick some stuff up for his kids, and for the Big Brother eviction / re-admission, oh, and to ferry Yorkie about as usual). I've been living off toast and soup - which is quite nice but not good for my wasit line.

But I'm a bit clearer of head today - hence to shopping trip this morning and this post now, so with a bit of luck come Saturday I'll be fit and well.

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
