Count down to trying for baby 4: Clutter!

Eeeeek! Only 5 weeks if the pill left!

You know, as I'm sat here near the end if the day (as far as the kids are concerned), looking at the crazy mess they have made and the tiny amount of space we have, I find my self thinking about chucking a lot of stuff out! And getting better storage for the stuff we have. Not more storage because I've run out of room to PUT more storage. Better stuff. No idea what though.

And what exactly to I get rid off? With plans for another baby next year there's no point getting rid of baby stuff we will only wind up buying again! And everything the boys have comes in handy for the younger boys. They all play with everything...! Cars, trains, super heros, knights, building blocks, books, colouring and crafting stuff.... There's tons of it but it all gets used!

I feel like I am drowning in toys and books and kids clothes. There is barely a surface in the house which isn't cluttered, or a floor that's free of debris, or a door handle that isn't being used as a handing rail. Every chair has stuff piled on the back of it.

I feel a bit like Waynetta Slob by the end of the day, with my hair and clothes a mess and my energy at minus five. At least I can say there isn't a thick fog of cig smoke or mountains of discarded beer cans. That's one thing in our favour.


(not actually me or the hubby!)
It's not put me off having another baby, but I do find myself looking forward to the day we CAN start ditching stuff we won't use again. Although there will be tears shed when it comes to things we've had since Jack was a baby and they've all used them.

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 one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

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
