It's my BIRTHDAY!

Argh! Another year had slipped by. Where does the time go?

So this is my first birthday as a married woman!

And it's not felt that much different, aside from the lack of booze... although the last two years were pretty dry too as they the both the day before other peoples wedding and turning up still half cut or hung over was not really acceptable.

Mum came over for the day as Yorkie was working and we sat and gossiped and watched the most recent movie version of Pride and Prejudice on Sky (which we both agreed is still not a patch on the BBC drama of a few years ago with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy... phwaaa!) , but she left just before I went to pick Yorkie up form work.

Instead of the pub this year Yorkie took me to the cinema, a rare treat in itself for us these days (i.e. since we started to spend most of our money on DVDs, which are cheaper than a trip to the movies and you can have a pee without missing the best bits).

We went to see the Bourne Ultimatum with Ray & Sarah and Jen (who looks MASSIVE now with just 3 weeks to go before Conner is born... it almost looks unnatural, and more than just a little scary! She's still gorgeous though!). And - aside from Ray - we all loved it!

There are a couple of the fight scenes which I think will actually look better on the telly than the big screen, the camera work is all 'zip zip zip' which does add to the mood, but when it's taking up the whole of your vision you end up wondering what part of the screen your supposed to be looking at, what's going on, and why are my eyes hurting! And Matt himself looks a little porky round the chops in a couple of scenes (but Bourne has been on the run for 3 years, healthy eating may not be a viable option!).

Great movie though, and if you like the first two you'll love this one too. Think we'll be buying the box set at some point!

I got some lovely prezzies and some nice cards which are brightening up my front room as I type and had a really nice day.

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
