Popped home (not really here!)


Livingroom (during) Storage!!!

I have been missing my hubby SO much! It's very odd being apart from him. We are so rarely apart for more than a few hours. So I am really glad that I managed to pop home and see him as well as the progress being made on the house. It's just a shame that I couldn't bring Jack too.

The first thing I noticed when I got home was the lack of wall paper in the stairway! That was not something I thought we were doing just yet! But apparently waiting for the filler to set in the living room was too frustrating for Mark so he thought he might as well start on the stairs too... The nesting bug has burrowed it's way deep into him I think!

But back to the living room. The artex has gone and the paper is up on the ceiling. The old paper and paint is gone from the walls and all the new paper was up, with just a couple of feet of painting to do (Mark knew how much I wanted to do SOME of the painting!) so we finished that together and bobbed out to B&Q for some more bits and pieces, including a nice new light fitting (I've always hates the one that's in there).

Mark went off to the job centre for half an hour (and has seen some jobs he fancies too!) and I gave the place a good sweep / hoover / scrub over, and then we spent the afternoon building the cubies. After that Mark started to being down boxes of books and DVDs and so on for me to unpack and put away.

Exhausting work! It deserved a little Chinese food from Boon (mainly because the Kitchen it pretty much unusable for someone who's bump is as big as mine, until we finish unpacking!).

He's thinking that we (Jack & I) might be able to come home properly on Sunday. There's still some stuff to bring down and sort out, and Jack's new room to strip & re-paper/paint. The main obstacle is finding a place for the old book case.... we'd planned on putting it in our bedroom but the new bed is that little bit wider than the old one (like 2 inches) so now it wont fit! Which means that case and all the stuff we wanted to put on it are now floating about the house, homeless and under our feet!

Always fun!

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
