Easter!

No way I was going to just sit at home all day today... Not with the induction looming and the kids full of chocolate and sweets. So we went to Happy Mount Park.
It's not been the warmest or driest of days, but we've had luck on our side. We got good free parking, avoided the rain save for a little drizzle, and since the big easter 'do' was yesterday it wasn't over crowded either! Playland opened again this weekend so the boys got to play on the cars and bikes again too, as well.as have a ride on the train and a mad half hour in the Pirates In The Park indoor play.
We had a small picnic while we were there and the kids had a good 3+ hours running about like loons before heading home so Tom could have a nap and Jack got a couple of.hours on the Wii with Mark. I did the roast! Mmmm... Lamb! And it was good too. Even the kids scoffed the lot (although they were on the promise of more easter eggs if they ate up).
Now we're settled in watching the end of Toy Story before bed :)
Nice Easter <3

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
