Now we're BOTH crafting!

The hubby has a craft! The last few times we've been down to Hobby Craft he has been gazing longingly at the Quilling sets. (wanna know what quilling is??) To be honest - and I've said this to him - I really didn't think he would have the patience for quilling but he's kept on coming back to it saying he's really really like to give it a a go. So I bought him a beginners set (at a rip off price of over £30, only to find it for £20 on ebay after, grrrrr), and I have been prooved wrong!

Have a look at these lovely, delicate, detailed snowflakes!

Snowflakes

So now our evenings are spent with us crafting together! Which is really nice as it happens, although it SOUNDS very middle aged (although, I'm now 30something and he'll be 40 next year, so maybe we ARE middle aged) and gives us a whole new topic of conversation (much needed since neither of us are venturing out to work at the moment, and we share 24 hours of the every). He longer rolls his eyes every time I want to show off the latest little thing I've made because he's doing the same to me now :oD

He used up all his white paper within the first few days so I ordered him 4 packs of papers as a treat, and some dried lavender for myself. Thanks to the bank holiday we only got them today and we've been hopping up and down since I placed the order. Typical that his would come on the day he's off out for the evening, but for me that means I can get the sewing machine out without the vibrations knocking his hands. In fact, since I have got the kids fed, washed and tucked into bed... I think I'll make a start!

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
