Parc Oiseaux

This was a FANTASTIC  day! It's the only day trip we took this time, which suited the kids well. It was more than an hours drive each way and there's only so much driving they are willing to put up with on a daily basis and they had much prefered to swim in the lakes. But this was well worth the drive. We chose this because Jack loves all animals, Tom has a bitof a thing for Flamingoes, and Georgie just LOVES ducks (and apparently parrots, which he also shouted "Quack! Quack!" at)

Parc Oiseaux is more than just a bird park, it's the size of a ZOO! If you are ever in the Ain region of France I strongly suggest you check it out. We were there most of the day and didn't get to see everything, or take in the shows, feedings, or even the train ride. The kids want to go again next time we visit my Dad. The enclosures are huge, the animals very well looked after, and there are play areas and cafes and toilets dotted around.

Jack loved seeing the parrots and got to feed these beautifully coloured little birds. Tom got the chance to feed them but was a little too shy to actually do it. George refused to be held and wriggled free of our arms to potter about and take a closer look at them, getting as close as he could - which was very very close since they were soooo tame! It was a perfect day out for 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 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
