Quiet Moments

When ever I have a few moments to myself and let my mind wonder I start to think about doing something creative again. I've done next to nothing for ages. Okay, so I did some cross stitch while I was pregnant, and I did those jungle animal painting for Jack's room, but that's been it. And they weren't terribly creative anyway.

I keep thinking that maybe I should start painting properly again, or maybe I should have another go at writing. But I am a little stuck for inspiration. Jack takes up pretty much my whole world at the moment and any painting I tried to do would only reflect how soppy I feel over him which is not my style so I'm not keen on that. Plus, baby and paint might not be a good mix right now. That'll be more fun when he's big enough to join in and paint too.

So that leaves writing. More than just my blog - which is rambling not writing - something enjoyable like I used to do years ago. But again, what inspiration do I have right now. Motherhood... There are millions of tat chick books about that. It would be nothing original, nothing sparkling. But it might just scratch this creative itch I've got.

And it's not like I'm trying to get anything published or anything.

Hummm...

I might just set up a pen-name account somewhere and see how I get on! Assuming I ever get time to write more than a few sentences at a time!

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
