What can go wrong WILL go wrong!

Have you ever had one of those weeks where just nothing goes right? I've just had one. From the very first day back after our holiday there has been irritation after irritation.

First off Hubby gets a letter from his bosses saying that they had lost the contract. He is going to have to TUPE over to the new company if he wants to keep his job. This company only lasted on the contract for a YEAR! It's not the end of the world by any means but it is a massive hassle!

Meantime, I'm at work and there's no access to the emails. Our freelance IT guy is off doing his other job (somewhere far flung and out at sea) and does his best to resolve it but we're the best part of the day with out email which - for me and just about everyone else in our office - massively reduces the amount of work we can actually do.

On my day off I go out with the kids and meet up with some girlfriends and their kids only for one of the ADULTS to have a massive tantrum and strop off we because we didn't want to do exactly what she wanted to do. Embarrassing and a tad stressful!

Back to work and guess what... NO INTERNET! It takes till gone 1pm to get it running again and even when it does, the email has gone on the fritz again. I almost had a tantrum of my own (although mine would have been justified!)

Wishing I'd booked a weeks holiday!!!

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
