More snow

This morning the snow here is so thick that no one can get their cars off the street. Mark, Kev and Rob had to get the bus to Asda this morning instead of going in Rob's car, and I have no idea if I'll be able to pick them up at the end of the day!

More snow is forecast for the rest of the day, with sub-zero temps tonight. I've suggested that if the roads are clear at the end of tomorrow that we head straight to my mums tomorrow night instead of waiting till the morning. Mark'll have to do his last minute shopping in Burnley. At least that way we'll be a bit closer to the In-Laws and wont have as far to drive in one go.

It's crossed my mind that maybe we wont get out of Lancaster! Which is a bit of a worry as we don't have anything that would pass as a Christmas Dinner here - apart from the pud and other sweets we bought to take to Jenny's. Christmas day here - just the 3 of us - wouldn't feel like Christmas. It'd just be another day, with presents. Don't fancy that! Mark suggested he buy a roast, just in case. It can always go in the freezer for another day....

I do still want a White Christmas, but I want the roads to be clear enough to get to where we're going too!

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
