Stressful money & work stuff

Urgh... Less then happy day today. MH C&R think I owe them £1200 for self assessment penalties. But I can't get through on the phone! Nice manager lady said I could call from work (instead of run up a huge bill waiting at home while I have the kids screaming mummymummymummy coz I've dared to pick up the phone and look serious). Am sending them a letter instead and hope I get a reply soon. Otherwise I'll have to pitch up at the local office - in the town hall - with kids in tow. Pretty sure I don't owe anything......... but it's not impossible that I've fecked up somewhere. A little worried. I'd have to make MANY SMALL repayments and I just don't want it hanging over my head.

On top of that the Boss wanted to talk to me about those meetings from Friday. Did I think it was really as bad and the Ops Manager had said? Frankly, yes. So then he had a huge off loading session and I'm sat there - again - listening to it all. Mind you, I'm one of the longest serving (surviving) members of staff so I know a lot of what's happened to bring people to this point, and I've worked all departments. It's kind of nice that the MD feels like he can talk to me, a mere underling ;) but at the same time..... I just want to NOT be a part of other peoples stress at work!

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
