Nesting Phase 1 - New Bed!

The new bed came today. It was supposed to arrive between 10am and 2pm so Mark thought he'd get a good early start on pulling the old bed to bits ready to have it out of the way so the new bed can go in. This was around 8.30 - 9am

It's not quite worked out that way so far.... as it is now 8pm and we still don't have the new bed up, even though it arrived at an excpetionally early 8.55am.

My dear husband doesn't just chuck stuff out. I would have just skipped it or tipped it. People like me are the reason why we have landfill issues. He hasn't just separated the two halves of the divan, he has removed all the fabric, salvaged all the wood, and and spent most of the afternoon pulling the springs and other metally bits off what is left. There are neat(ish) piles of foam, boxes and bags of springs, and a stack of beams. He's still going.

I think the beams will become parts of shelving at some point. I was offered the foam if I could think of anything to do with it. I can't. The rest I think will be going to the tip and disposed of in the correct recycling area. I'm very proud of my Green husband.

But there is just one thing that's bothering me. In 2 hours time I'm really going to be wanting to go to bed. The old bed is still not fully down, or removed, and the new bed is still sat in it's boxes in the livingroom.

I think we might be sleeping on the old mattress at this rate! Either that or he'll be working through the night while I kip on the sofa!

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
