Much nesting!

I woke up at 4.30 this morning, Jack had sqawked in his sleep and woken us both up, but as Mark was getting up to him he settled down again. Unfortunatly, I was awake by then so after half an hour tossing and turning I gave up and came down stairs.

In the last 3 1/2 hours I have tidied and wiped down the livingroom, cleared off the "cooking" half of the kitchen and given it a scrub, neatened up the "workshop" half. I have put on a load of washing, stacked the dishwasher and set that off. I've got Jack up, changed (twice), fed him and read him 3 books. I've even had time for my own breakfast and some facebooking and forum posts!

Still got more to do though, once the dishwasher finishes I have to empty and restack that (I am just finishing wading through the stuff Mark used while I was away topped up with what we've used since I've come back) then I can give the sink a good scub out. I want to run around the bathroom too, it's become a workshop too while we've been painting and it looks really grotty in there right now.

I also need to hoover the middle bedroom (or at least 2/3 of it that I can get to) as - now that the painting is finished in there are the border is up - the first half of the bunkbed is arriving today! (thank you Mum & John). And I really need to (or maybe get Mark to) find a way of clearing the landing, even if it's just for one day, so that we can actually GET the bunkbed up there!

Don't know why I woke up with so much energy today.... it's bound to run out sooner rather than later. I was up till around 10pm sorting out the middle room and putting the border up, and then took an age to nod off. I think this must be the last burst of energy left over from 2nd Tri before the 3rd Tri fatigue kicks in! Might as well make the most of it though :oD

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
