Liebster Award....

How cool is this?

The lovely Kae James over at "Where's My Pacifier" has nominated me for a Liebster Award!

Liebster Awards go to “up and coming” bloggers with less than 200 followers. The origins of this award are unclear and are simply given by fellow award nominees to blogs that inspire them and that they enjoy reading. “Liebster” means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome in German.

So, next I need to tell you 11 facts about myself, answer 11 questioned posed by my nominator Kae, nominate 11 bloggers, and ask them 11 questions. What do I want you to do?? Just check out all of the nominated blogs and follow them! Simples!

11 Things about me:

1) I'm British! A very proud Northern Lass :0D

2) I have 2 tattoos and my tongue is pierced. My kids think this is very funny!

3) I used to have purple hair

4) I am obsessed with The Sims and have spend way too much money on these games over the years.

5) Ditto with Skylanders!

6) I collect DVD box sets of shows I like coz it's cheaper than paying for a Sky subscription!

7) I dream of writing an e-book! I have already written out my story plan and characters but am too scared to start in case it's rubbish!

8) I still have all my art work from my Degree, but have no where to display it. That makes me sad :(

3) What do you say when your (or someone else’s) kid asks you why the sky is blue? That's its the way the sun shines through the atmosphere (which leads on to "what's the atmosphere...?", do my best to answer simply and truthfully)

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

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
