Sea Life Centre with the Octonauts!

We Love Peso!
I'm guessing by now most of you know that I love Blackpool!

And so do the kids!

Everywhere we've been this summer, like supermarkets, play areas, etc they have been giving away "kids go free" tickets for the Sea Life Centre, and once we saw that the Octonauts were going to be there too the kids were begging to go! It would have been heartless to refuse them!

Georgie is getting to the stage now where he does not want to be in his push chair any more. So we thought we'd risk letting him roam free this time! Last time we went (last summer) Georgie was only a few weeks old and in no position to get involved. This time he wanted to be part of EVERYTHING! He was clambering up the sides of the tanks and displays trying to get a closer look at the fish and marine animals, and laughing like mad every time anything moved!

Pretending to be at the bottom of the sea!
Jack was loving the quiz challenge going round the Centre. He was gutted when mummy got a question wrong (baaaaad mummy not knowing which oil spills are largest) and he lost a mark, but was very thrilled with himself for getting the rest right. I think the best part for him was walking through the shark tunnel and "tickling" the tummy of a shark that was laid across the roof of the tunnel!

Tom's not as into animals as his brothers, he's not into feeding animals much, or touching them (he's a little nervous of them, it's taken over a year to pluck up the courage to feed lambs and calves at the petting zoos), but he DOES like fish in tanks. His favourite bit is - as it always has been - the clown fish. "NEEEEMOOO FIIIIIISH!" I think he would have stood staring at them all day if we'd let him!

It's a fab day out for the kids. My lot love going and it is becoming an annual tradition. We highly recommend it! If you want to know prices you can follow this link and keep an eye out for "Kids Go Free" vouchers. They are EVERYWHERE!

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
