What's going on with the world?

It seems that every where I turn people I know and love are suffering.

I'm trying to get back in touch with a friend I haven't seen in ages, which is daft coz we live in the same town. We lost touch a while back when she kept pulling out of meeting up. I thought maybe I'd pissed her off or something after the 3rd or 4th time and left it to her to get in touch with me. Only now I hear that she has bipolar. I've umed and ahed about picking up the phone and chickened out. But tonight I was talking to a mutual friend who says she really needs us. So I've texted her and asked to meet up on Tue. No answer yet, and I'm away for the rest of the week, so I've also texted another mutual friend and put her on the case too. Hopefully something will come of it.

But it's everywhere I go. Another friend is an out patient at the local mental health unit. 2 people I know have had late (20 week plus) miscarriages. Things are bad every where I look.  Even we are having problems in our relationship (nothing I do is right and everything starts a row) which feel so much worse than the normal spats couples have.

And don't get me started on the stuff thats on the news - wars, natural disasters, etc.

My Witness friends tell me it's the coming to an end of this System (where it is the devil in control of the world, not god). There's a part of me that thinks they might be on to something.

One thing is for sure.... nearly everything is shit.

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
