So much for swimming....

Got to the pool and was turned away! They no longer do toddler sessions in the morning. The pool is closed to the public until 12 noon because they have schools in instead. Do these school children really need to use the BABY POOL??? Most of the toddlers I know sleep in the afternoons. So is it only a matter of time before they pack in the toddler sessions all together??

I'm appalled!

Took Jack to the park instead, but couldn't stay long. It's blazing hot out there and I had dressed Jack for the chance of a breeze on damp skin coming out of the baths, no sun hat, no sun cream. So after 20 - 30 mins or so we had to come back out of the sun before he got heat or sun stroke, or sun burn.

And when I got back with him I got snapped at by Mark for coming home too early without telling him! it seems telling him I'll only be out for the morning and coming home at 12.10pm is too early. Bloody nerve! Especially when I HAD sent him a message 15 mins earlier to say we were coming back, could he put the oven on (for lunch). Clearly it's all my fault that we can't go swimming, that it's hot and sunny, and that T-Mobile can't send messages quickly enough. So I get a lecture about how he hopes the wallpaper paste will still be useable on Friday. Why?? I'm taking Jack out tomorrow morning, and most of Thu (once the health visitor has been at 10, for what will be about 20 mins if that), and he'll be in bed in the afternoons - including THIS afternoon.

GRRRRRRRRRR! Believe me, if I could have kept Jack out for the whole day I WOULD HAVE DONE!

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
