Back home

Me and Jack got home yesterday afternoon. Jack did his "happy dance" when he saw his daddy, and then proceeded to trash the living room. He did calm down in the evening though and go for a snuggle with dad.

It's so nice to be back! Even though the house isn't at it's best at the moment. All my art work is homeless and squatting in the livingroom until a new home is found, the kitchen is full of stuff to go to the tip (although as I type this Mark is loading up the car for the first tip run) and the stairway/landing is a very strong deterant for burglers who would suffer a slow and painful death if they attempted to cross without a map.

BUT!!!! The livingroom is decorated and just wants the new light fitting putting up and (possibly) the celing painting. Jack's big boy room is almost fully painted and I think the walls will be finished by the end of the day, the celing  by the end of tomorrow. We're off to B&Q after the tip to buy some more backing paper so that Mark can get on with the stairway once Jack's room is painted.

I haven't gone round with the camera yet but I will do soon.

The only real downside we have to face is that without the loft being boarded out a lot of the stuff we wanted to put up there is hanging around. Mostly in our bedroom (which is ok since no one sees that but us.... not ideal though) and some will have to go into the nursery until we CAN get into the loft. That gives us until 6 months after Squiggle is born to get it done (call it Christmas) because then we'll need all the space in there for Squiggle.

One step at a time though, money does not grow on trees and some things just have to wait a while.

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
