Flibble...

I think I am losing my marbles a little... I am so absent minded right now! Hubby is putting down to a double dose of hormones (with me having the last week on both Pill & Implant), and I'm hoping he's right because that should settle down soon. But I'm horrifically forgetful too at the moment. Last week I forgot to make a packed lunch for Jack to take to school and had to scrabble round for £2 to buy him a school dinner. Today I totally forgot to meet up with another mum on the school run - something I do EVERY Tuesday - and she came round for us when we didn't show only to be told we'd gone. It didn't even click when she arrived at school, I just called out a cheery "hello".... She must think I'm so rude or ignorant :(

And this isn't all. I'm also in a "can't be arsed" mood. I think a lot of that is because we are STILL waiting for hubby to finish the bathroom. I'm not being critical of him, I know he's doing his best, but a couple of hours a day after work is making for a long, slow job. Not being able to have a bath for this long is wearing me down. but more than that, having my kitchen, landing, bedroom and bathroom all be taken over by building supplies and tools is hard work. I have no clean tidy space to relax. I cant get round anywhere to clean properly, so I'm losing motivation to clean at all. Having no space indoors to hang my non-drier-safe laundry (what with the weather being so unpredictable) means that laundry is backing up too. I'm only washing stuff that I can shove in the drier and a handful of essential drip-dry stuff like school & work uniforms.

Money is tight right now too. The bathroom is costing us, we still have Tom's birthday to sort (just the party to pay for really, but it's still money), last payment for our summer holiday to go out next month, and now there's this HM R&C thing hanging over me too.

Not to mention that work stuff.

Maybe I'm a touch depressed as well as hormonal?  Urgh.......!

I'll try to be a bot more upbeat in my next post! Everyone needs to moan now and then though ;)

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
