Baby's got BACK!

Far too bloody much of it! And rather than being an crappy americanisim for having a big arse, I actually do have a FAT BACK!


The dress is actually a two piece thing. The skirt was a little on the snug side - I could do with losing maybe an inch of my hips. Fine. No problem.

The top, on the other hand, gaps by a MASSIVE 6 - 8 INCHES!!!!!

Heart broken barley covers it.

Now, here's the REAL problem. Because of the embroidery on the dress, it can't be altered. So there are three choices:

  1. Lose 2 stone by June 13 - the final fitting
  2. Have a NEW top made, at great expence
  3. Have an aditional, removable 'panel' made and remove the buttons from the back of the bodice, repacing them with a lace up.
Now, idealy I will lose the 2 stone. But as I have FAILED to lose any weight in the last three weeks there is no way I am banking on that!

Having a new one made is OUT OF THE QUESTION. There is no way I can jusitfy the expence. After all, I am fatter now because I have over indulged myself. Now I am suffering for it. If I had gained weight through something which was not my fault in the slightest, then maybe.... But that's not the case. I am a troff-monster! And lazy too.

So we're having the panel made. It will cost (approx £60.00) but nothing like as much as having a new top made! How it works is this: An additional section is made out of the same fabric. It is fastened into the back of the top where the gap is (with hooks and eyes I think). The buttons on the top are replaced with loops, and the dress is drawn together - very adjustable - with a green 'ribbon' in a corset style. This way, regarless of whether I stay the same shape, lose wight, or (god forbid) GAIN weight, the dress will still fasten and look nice.

However! Tonight I am off to areobics! ALL alcohol and sweet, tempting foods are OFF the menu 7 days a week! It's time to go hard core with the weight loss. It's no longer a case of take my time because I have all the time in the world. I have until the 13th of June to get trim - and STAY TRIM!

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
