Back to work tomorrow

Seems like no time since I packed up my desk to start maternity leave. I'm back to work tomorrow. Got my box of stuff packed (including photo of kids, kidston mug & tea pot, and my breast pump!) Just have to add my lunch in the morning.

I've spent the day cleaning up. Kitchen & bathroom are fit (enough) for my mum coming over to childmind. Hubby & eldests uniforms are washed. Since its Twelth Night hubby has taken the tree and decs down. It's all very sobering.

While in looking forward to being around adults again I am going to miss my kids terribly. I've never been apart from George for more than 3hrs and its going to be hard leaving with Jack - who I am dropping off at school - in the morning. Mascara might be a bad idea...

But its not like I haven't done this 'first day back' thing before. It's no easier 3rd time round, but I do know everything will be ok. It still makes me sad though. I was fine until today and now it seems real I'm a little less than fine.

Oh hum.

I'll be home before 6pm. I get an hour with them all before bed.

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
