Pheromones!

This is at risk of being a TMI post - so I'm sorry for that! Feel free to click away and come back for a safer post! Or.... you can hang around a read for a while longer.

Regulars will know that me & the hubby are planning for our 4th child, but that I am still on the pill for a while longer (think I have about 5-6 weeks left). Since I had my implant taken out I have been taking the pill but tracking my cycle and recording everything on Fertility Friend. And I have noticed something interesting about our sex life (told you it would be TMI).

I'm sure you'll understand when I say our sex life is not the 24/7 thing it used to be... nearly 12 years together and 3 kids already means that we're happy enough in our relationship to not feel unloved without sex on tap, and face it, with this many small children running about, finding opportunity while we still have energy is tricky too! But we do still HAVE a sex life... and it always seems to happen on the days I would be fertile if I wasn't on the pill. Coincidence?

Well I think not! So I've been reading up on pheromones. It seems that my poor hubby - no matter how tired he might be after a long day at work, or longer day home alone with the kids while I'm working - simply cannot resist me for about 5-8 days of my cycle. He has no idea what my cycle is. The only indication he gets is that I wear underwear as well as my PJ's for a week every so often. In fact I doubt he even notices that! (PJs are a must when you have up to 3 small boys in bed with you who are just toooo interested in what mummy has instead of a winky.)

During this time if I so much as brush past him he is practically panting! He suddenly gets the urge to do loads of housework or DIY too. A subconscious way to try to please me so I may reward him? Who knows. But I like to think so! And I'm defiantly not complaining!! Dinner cooked, washing done, kids to bed, AND some special time with my hubby?

I wish I could bottle the stuff for the rest of the month!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…
