Weekend Away

Another one... My poor little car isn't used to making 300 mile round trips every few weeks! And neither am I! Yorkie's lucky, he gets to sleep in the car being a non-driver. Me? Well, I have to cope with winds and rain lashing the car and getting bounced around in general by the weather in what is suposed to be a city car.

It's shattering!

But still, it has to be done so I do it, and I do like going to visit his family (soon to be my in-laws).

Jenny is on a well deserved holiday after her exams so we stayed at Kates this time. She's looking after Jenny's cat as well as her own two, and poor Olly was a bit shy - until he recognised us and have us a friendly laserating...

We mainly went over so that Yorkie could try on the jacket Kate is making him for the wedding. The bodice is well on the way, and the jacket skirt and sleaves were pinned on while he wore it to get it right.

It looks great! It's a brilliant shape for him, showing off how broad his shoulders are and bringing him in at the wasit. Very flattering indeed! I can't wait to see it finished.

We're off down again in two weeks for another fitting for him.

It was very sad to hear from Dad that none of my family aside from him and my mother will be coming to the wedding. I know this is because Nan is very sick in hospital, but I can't help but feel that they wouldn't have come anyway, unless some one came to bring Nan. I don't know any of my family on my dad' side apart from Nan and without her I know I'll never see or hear from them again. Mum's an only child and has next to no family either... My side of the wedding will be empty.

This is why I am thrilled that Yorkie is speaking to his Dad again. We nipped in for an hour yesterday and dropped off a wedding invite for them. There's a chance they wont come, but these are good steps to having them included in our lives, and the lives of our children. I don't want them to miss out on having a family like me. It's cruel to make a child suffer because a person doesn't get on with thier parents.

I'm working this afternoon, and tomorrow I am off to do the dress shop for Jacquie and her daughters... Hopefully on Wednesday I'll be able to get some college work done. And maybe find some time to SLEEP!

I can't believe it's coming up so fast! Pay no mind to the family that wouldn't come. While it is nice to have a pile of people show up it is better to have those that matter. I think I knew something like 40% of the people at my wedding.

Good luck on the sleep......if you find any to spare just toss it in the post would you please?

I know! It's all a bit scary and grown up!

Got an RSVP off someone today... don't know who they are. I blame Mum.

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
