Nearly Christmas!!!

I have just ONE MORE present to arrive (and it's my hubby's MAIN present, but it should be here tomorrow) and then that's it. I've done all my shopping and wrapping. I am SO poor now... less than £20 in my account (until my tax credit finally turn up, when ever that might be).

But it will all be worth it when my hubby and my son open their presents. And everyone else too, but mainly Mark & Jack. I may have got a little carried away this year... which is not good on a reduced income, but hey, it's Christmas. And I've managed not to go into debt for it.

I'm also thinking that maybe, just MAYBE, this might be a White Christmas this year? I'm not talking about
the definition of an official white Christmas used most widely, notably by those placing and taking bets, is for a single snow flake (perhaps amongst a shower of rain and snow mixed) to be observed falling in the 24 hours of 25 December.
I'm talking about a good layer of snow where WE are so we can build a snowman with Jack! And it might just happen. Maybe. If we're lucky! There's snow here, but not thick. There's hail, rain and sleet too... boo! There's loads of snow at Mums (in fact, we got caught in it yesterday and lost control of the car briefly on the way home. No harm done.) There's snow forecast for Jenny's the the next few days too...! Of cause the other thought is.... of we get the snow, will we manage to gt together for christmas! O_o I don't want snow THAT badly!

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
