OMG! It's nearly Christmas!

And I am NO WHERE NEAR ready!

In fact I am off to town this afternoon to buy a few more bits, and get my CD player put in the car (So I can play my Christmas CDs). And I'll be doing the same tomorrow too.

How has it got to December already? So far I have bought something for Mum and John, ordered something for Mark which hasn't come, and bought a few bits for Jack. Between me and Mark we have some bit for some of the other kiddies in the family and he's made a good start on his family. It's normally the other way round... Me that has most things done, dusted, wrapped and bagged up according to where it's going and Mark in a flap in the last few days. (He's just read that bit and walked off chuckling, adding a cheeky "Whoot" as he walked out of the room, grrrrr)

I do at least know what I want to get for my Dad and Fay, and Jenny has given me some tips on what to get for a few people too. Jack has a TON of stuff, but no stocking fillers yet, so I'm on with that too. Sort of.

GAHH!

Christmas shopping is a LOT easier when you're NOT pregnant, and are capable of thinking in a straight line!

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
