Sad baby

Yesterday was jab time again. This time Yorkie came with us as he's off work at the moment. Poor little Jack was good as gold until we went into the room where he actually gets his injections and then he started to yell. It's as though he knew what was coming, even though he's never been in the particular room before.

He had both his legs jabbed - and he bled!!! It was horrible! But he had mummy AND daddy to cuddle him afterwards this time and he calmed down again soon enough. We weighed him (13lb 11 1/2 oz now - big lad!) and brought him home.

He was happy enough for a couple of hours and then the nastyness started. His temp went up and his mood went down. He had to be held or he wouldn't settle. His poor little face just looking up at us with tears asking why he felt so rotten, what had we done to him, why wont we make it stop?

Still, he's slept a lot since, and there's nothing wrong with his appittie either. I took him to baby massage again this morning though and he just would not settle into it. I spent most of the class cuddling and feeding him, rockig him gently until it was time to come home again. Now he's just sleeping again. He's not as warm as he was - calpol's great stuff - and he's not as unhappy as he was so I think he must be coming through it now. But it is awful!

And we have to do it all again in 4 weeks!

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 one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
