Last Post Before Christmas!

This is my chance to wish a Merry Christmas to anyone we wont be seeing this side of the festivities... with a bit of luck tonight (failing that, tomorrow morning) we'll be off with all the prezzies and away! The snow here is clearing. It rained last night and so far today there has only been a bit of hail - although mum called and said they were having a blizzard in Burnley!

Typically though, I'm feeling ill. My throat has been getting sore for the last few days, and today is really hurting. I'm tired too. I would have thought that the penicillin I am taking at the moment would have fought off any nasty bugs, but apparently not (either that, or I would be a lot worse without it!). I'm full of sneezes and snot too.

I think Jack might be a little off as well, he's been fighting me with his meals the last couple of days, and today all he wants to do is cuddle. It's lovely, but a little out of character. Makes me think he's feeling poorly too.

I'm supposed to be going to see Jacquie and family today in Warrington, but I'm not up to the drive, not when I have either a drive through the snow to mum's tonight, or a long drive all the way to S. Yorks tomorrow without stopping if the snow doesn't let up. I feel bad about it, but I'll just have to catch up after Christmas.

I think I'll have a long hot bath once Jack goes for his nap this afternoon, followed by a nap of my own!

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

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
