At Papee's House & Lit de Roi

He said he'd made some improvements. What he'd actually done was install a wooden play set (slide & swings) and a pool. The kids think it is awesome! They like being at Papee's house!

Last night they just went mental after the drive/flight/drive down here. But today was a good day! They played in the field and on Papee's park. But by lunch time they were itching to go out. We drove them down to the lake and found a shady spot to camp out, shoved arm bands of Jack & Tom and let them splash about in the water with me. They loved it! Jack loved spotting little fish in the water and Tom went loopy when 4 little fish started to nibble him on the feet and legs!


I had to bribe them out of the lake with a dip in Papee's pool before dinner. No way they were getting out of the water otherwise! But then I had the same issue getting them out of the pool. In the end I think it was shear hunger that dragged my elder two sons out of the water and, reluctantly, under the shower for a soaping up and hosing down!

It's a shame that Georgie is a bit small too join in right now. We have no baby-float for him here like we did in Wales. But he had a good bit of bonding time with his Dad for a change - it's usually me playing with George while Hubby dies the big kid stuff with Jack & Tom - and he seems perfectly happy.

Think we're off to find another lake-beach tomorrow!

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
