First Gi

Awwww....! Look at him! It's he cute?

Hahaha, he'll hate me for that when he's older. But I can't help it, he's my biggest little man and I adore him.

In case you haven't guessed already, this is our Big Lad Jack in his brand new Gi. His first one. It's a tad on the big side but his Sensei said he could just roll them up for now. It's supposed to do him till he's about 10yo I think. I really hope he's still into Jujitsu when he's ten.

He's been taking lesson after school with activ8 for the last few months and seems to be really enjoying it. He's always excited on Tuesdays because that's Jujitsu day. He comes bouncing out after his lesson and is grinning from ear to ear every week.

He couldn't wait to get home and try his Gi on to show his dad and brothers. After I took his photo he wanted to keep it on, but the thought of spilling anything down it had him whipping it off and asking me to put it away tidy for him :D Shortly after I heard him saying to Tom that when he was older and in school like him, he could do Jujitsu with him and wear a Gi too. Tom looked awestruck!

Next month Jack goes for his first Grading. He's totally relaxed about it, I'm the nervous one! You can bet there'll be a post about that!

The people from Activ8 are fab. I highly recommend them. They're only quite local (or so I believe) but if you are in the UK and around the Preston - Lancaster area give them I look. http://www.activ8selfdefence.com/

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
