Trip to the In Laws

I ought to know by now that when Jenny says she'll have "a room and some bedding sorted out" for us when we come over to visit, that that is just what we get. And I mean JUST! A room with no bed, curtains, or door. Just an airbed (deflated) and some bedding. We had to laugh! For about 20 mins Jenny and I tried to use duck tape to stick a make-shift curtain up over the window but it was useless and just kept falling down. In the end we slept in the living room!

Always an adventure!

I hated the drive there, and the drive back. I'm still not happy in the car on the motorway. It's as though I've stopped trusting the car. Or myself to drive it safely. But needless to say we got there and back and all as we should be.

Jenny is making progress with the house, aside from not having guest room yet. Her room looks great, the kitchen is well on the way with it's new units, and the bathroom's looking good too. I'm envious that she's managed to get something done while I haven't got the money to even start on our home yet. Still... there's time.

We called round to see Rachel, Gary and the kiddies (just in time for Dr Who) and Yorkie got swarmed over again with many cries of "uncle Mark, uncle Mark!" I hope he feels guilty for not spending enough time with his nephews! Then maybe we can go to see them more often!

Sunday we went round to see his mum and have lunch (Roast Lamb, yummy). Rachel and the gang came too. Kate's found some fabric that should serve as liner for Yorkie's jacket, and liner / backing for the waist coats for my dad and the best man. She's cut me some off (with great difficulty as her fabric scissors had blunt and she could only use embroidery ones instead) so that I can give it to Fay to make my dad's waist coat.

But it was too short a trip. Just the one night and then back home to our cats - who were stressed out about being left for a night even with more food than most zoo's get through in a month. Muppet sulked and Fizgig didn't stop charging round the house for about 3 hours, jumping of Muppets head, which just turned her sulk into an all out rage. Cats, eh?

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
