Over tired and hyped!

It's been another one of thse LONG days! Yup, a 5am-er..... Finally made it home at just gone 8.15pm....

I can't keep doing this!

Although, today, I feel strangly good. Possibly because I have achived a lot, or maybe because I have got not just my second wind, but have passed through that into hyper-mad-bunny-mode.

I suspect the latter.

The weather's been horrible. And driven about 300 miles just today. I tired to inspect a site in Dewsbury that wasn't ours (easy mistake to make, two nursaries next door to each other, I walked into the wrong one thinking they were one and the same). I have interviewed - at very short notice - and hired a new cleaner for one of our problems sites, then trained her (and she's good too!). Former problem cleaners (at the same site) are now doing a cracking job thanks to my input - and they seem to like me still. I just hope they carry on doing well when I'm not there to watch over them.

I also called in on mum for a couple of hours on the way past and had tea and quiche, which kept me going for the rest of the day.

I managed to get the van back to work just before it ran out of diesel (well, if they will send me off with less than a full tank and no expenses card...). Running on fumes for the last 5 or so miles, fule light blinking away. Oh well.... I left a note. And the office is right next door to a Shall Station. At least they wont have to push it far if it's that empty!

Hee hee!

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
