Sunday Dinner #4

Hee hee hee! I've got RIGHT into this Sunday Roast business... Today was Lamb!

I've been saving that till last for a few reasons, firstly it's bloody expensive so I had to wait until payday (it cost over £8 for this lump of meat), and secondly Mark is very - erm - particular about his lamb which puts me off cooking it in case I get it wrong.

But I didn't! I was LOVELY! Nice and tender, full of flavour... I did roast spuds again, and roast parsnips too, as well as veg and gravy. Even Jack wolfed his lamb (which I didn't expect after not managing the beef last week).

There's still quite a bit on the bone to carve too with it being a big leg, so we'll be able to nibble bits for the next couple of days too. Just need to find something nice to do with cold lamb. Seems a shame to just stick it on a butty.

I've also been getting stuck into my sewing again.

Squiggles sampler is more than half way done. This is the bottom half. I've got a bit further now, with most of the top half done too. Just have to do the pretty edging and outlines after that and then I can put it away until Squiggle is born.

Then I'll start work on my next project... I'm going to try my hand at crochet. Hope it goes better than my knitting :o(

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
