I keep doing too much!!

Urgh.... I am SO tired.

I'm wanting to do stuff. I don't know if it's nesting that's kicked in early, or if I am just going nuts because I'm not at work, or what.... but I want to DO things. And I keep forgetting that this baby doesn't like me doing much. But I feel bad lounging on the sofa while Mark does all the clearing and refurbishing of Jack's room.

On Saturday I went through a load of stuff in our bedroom and the middle room (which will become Jack's room) and made up a car load of stuff to go to the tip, only to find out the car battery is dead and I can't replace it yet.

Sunday I went a little nuts and blitz the kitchen and living room, then baked two loves of bread (properly, no bread making machines in THIS house) and cooked a full roast dinner.

Yesterday I took things a bit more gentley and had a friend round with her little girl which meant the kids could entertain each other while we put our feet up and gossiped. But clearing up the mess aftwards was a bit exhausting! Mark got us a take-away because I'd forgotten to get anything out of the freezer and was too tired to think about what to cook. I had an early night, but woke up when he came to bed and then didn't back off until ater 1am.

Today I walked Jack into the town and did some food shopping and bused back. I think it would have been easier to walk back.... There is clearly a knack to getting a tired and hungry toddler, shopping, and pram onto a mini-bus while trying to keep your bump out of everyone else's way. I don't have this knack. AT ALL! And a granny had to help me both on and off the bus (Oh the shame! I'm usually so organised at such things! But thank you granny!)

I am now so tired that I could sleep standing up. But if I do I wont sleep tonight.

NO FAIR! 
((tantrum, stamp feet)) <-- It works for Jack. He always get's to go to bed when he does that >_<;

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
