Christmas 2011 & New Year

:oD It has been lovely, the kids have loved it! Ok, so there has been some illness (Tom still suffering tail end of what ever that bug was so either in with us at night or screaming his head off, me being sick xmas morn, then both Jenny & Ash coming down with some gastric yuck between xmas & nye) but generally it has been fun!

Christmas eve and morning with my Mum, then the drive over to Yorkshire for dinner with Jenny & Ash, buffet tea at Dave & Dee's with their kids, boxing day at Rachel & Garry's with their kids, Bob, Rach & Ben, Kate & David, and Clare with her feller (Meggie was with her dad)... we called in on folks again through the week and chucked in a trip to Rother Valley County Park, and a Brewers Fare (for the play area and yummy coffee), before heading back to mums for one more night and home for New Years Eve...

I'm shattered after all the driving, but its always wonderful to see the family and I'm always sad to come home afterwards. Next big do's: Baby Smudge arriving this Spring, and Jenny & Ash's wedding this Summer! I think 2012 will be a good one for us all :0D

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
