A good nights sleep!

Ohhh... how your ideas of a good nights sleep can change :oD

So far, most nights, Tom has been wanting a feed every hour or hour and a half, and hasn't wanted to settle into his own bed. Couple that with Jack having a few rough nights too (doesn't do well with the heat, and night before last his nappy ripped open and split crystals all over his bed!) and you get a very tired mummy & daddy!

Well last night was different! Last night we didn't have a peep out of Jack until 6.30am - which is fine - and Tom only woke to be fed at our bed time, 1am and 5am! Effectively he only disturbed my sleep once as by the time he'd had hid 5am feed & nappy change Jack was up.

We had a lovely half hour lounging in bed, Mark & I, with both our kiddies. Jack laughing, gigglimg and scrambling all over us, Tom chilling out and taking it all in. I like this whole family thing!

Now I am enjoying the peace and quiet brought by Mark taking Jack to Dad's club. I'm sat snuggling a well fed and clean bottomed Tom while I catch up on my soaps and wait for the midwife to visit. The sun is shining, I have the door open to let in the light & fresh air. Everything is wonderful!

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 one of thos…

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

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
