Weekend Catch Up

I've had a pretty good week. Jen's been over with Conner to meet Tom and have a play-date with Jack (These Thomas Trains are proving very popular! I know what I'll be getting Conner for his next birthday!). Kathy's been over with Katie too (although both kiddies where tired and stroppy and didn't get on as well as normal). And my mum's been over with John and took me and the boys to Happy Mount Park for an afternoon of sunshine and fun. Our health Visitor has been back in too and we seem to be doing ok.

I've been a bit naughty on the diet front though - partly because it's been pay day this week and partly because it's been too warm and stuffy to cook. We've had a Chinese take-away, and delivery pizza this week. Oh, and a McDonald's when mum came over *shame* Mark also bought me some sweets from Julian Graves which only just lasted the week....

That said I have still managed to lose a little weight, just a pound and a half. I'm putting it down to post-baby-loss still as normally scoffing like this would have been a big gain! I am kicking myself a bit though... imagine how much lighter I would be if I had not stuffed my face with crap!

On another note entirely, this is an expensive weekend for me :oD Today is my mums birthday (I must call her in a bit, wish her a happy day and make sure those expensive flowers have arrived) and tomorrow is Fathers Day which these days means cards from both boys to Mark, both boys to my dad, and me to my dad (Mark sorts out stuff for his dad himself).Not to mention presents for daddy from the boys too. Only they haven't arrived yet! Play.com sent them a while back now, but no sign... Luckily I went to town yesterday and bought a little extra something just in case.

Being Saturday Mark & Jack are off to Dads Club again. Tom is snoozing in his bouncy chair by my feet and I am (finally) having a TV catch up since the World Cup is the only time Mark ever wants to watch football (understandable, I'm not complaining. It's the only time I ever want to watch it too) so I haven't had chance to watch all the stuff I recorded last week, and I'm already recording the next lot! My digi-box is going to be full at this rate :oD I guess I'll have to do a little housework too, but I'm not going to break my neck over it today.

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
