Back on the go!

Well now, it's past the 6 month mark - just - and things are on the move again!!

Kate (Yorkie's mum) has found the green velvet we needed for Yorkie's suit and the nippers trousers, and there might even be enough left over to make a waist coat for the best man! Winner!!

Today I went over to Burnley to see mum who had booked appointments to see the photographer, cake maker, and caterer.

Pete, the photographer, seems lovely. He ran though what he does, explained about the album, choosing our photos, what happens to the spares, how he tends to organise taking the photographs, the prefered locations etc. He wants to see me and Yorkie for a trial run. He calls it "Engagment Photos" where we go over to Towneley and he takes some snaps of us. We get to keep them for free. This way he can get the feel for us, we can get used to his methods, and we get to see for real what he can do and the finished results. Sounds GREAT! And he is very reasonably priced too.

Next we went to see Jean, the wedding cake lady, who only turns out to be an old school friend of my mums! We didn't know this before hand, but she instantly regonised my mum and they got to chatting. And then gave us a discount on the cake! Like, over £100 discount!!! She's fine with my complicated cake requests (1 sponge layer, 1 fruit layer, 1 chocolate layer, and a green ribon to match the velvet) and is going to email me the photos of different stands available.

Then it was off to see Diane the caterer, in her BEAUTIFUL kitchen which while being part of her home was about the same size as my HOUSE! We ran through the menu mum had planned, and Diane suggested some of the things I wanted but mum had steared away from (like a red meat option, and soup alternative for the starter). She was even very very accomdating to dad's karotine allergy, suggesting a soup without carrots, salad without raw red peppers, and cooked carrots well apart from the other food.

A very productive day! Next step is to finalise the guest list and get the invites out, and organise a day when me and Yorkie can have our photos taken. Mum is sorting out a day when I can see the beautician about my hair and make-up, and we need to sort things out with the videographer and DJ.

Oh... and there's a trip to Leeds in order to try on the dress again! Although rather than lose wieght, I seems to have GAINED some, so I'm not looking forward to that!

Mum is even contacting the local posh hotel about the wedding night! Isn't she a STAR!!!

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
