The Office Move

I've been a bit quiet lately. I've been a bit stressed.... I thought that with Jack going back to school and Tom starting nursery things would be a bit calmer then the crazy busy summer we had, but it's just NOT! Tom is being very difficult right now. Not with going to nursery, that's all fine! But at home he's being really hard work and winding Jack up. And Jack hasn't got the good sense to ignore him so it escalates into a full blown screaming match!

Going to work has always been a bit of a haven for me. Seriously. I like my work and I like the people I work with. I've also really liked the office we've been using this last 2 - 3 years, a massive improvement on the dump we started out at. It's only 5 mins from home, close to town and tasty places for lunch, loads of natural light (which I need for my SAD), and it's a managed building which takes a lot of the stress out of things. But now we've moved..... Moving is stressful. Especially when you don't want to go.

The new place is nice enough. It's a bit out in the middle of no where. There's no kitchen, and the one toilet opens right into the office (so if you need a "number 2" it's off to the warehouse toilet for you!). There's no internet yet, and only one phone line for the 5 fixed desks and hot-desk to share. But that's supposed to be sorted by the end of the month. The server has also conked out, so no one can access the vast majority of files and such that we need. I'd always keep mine on my desk top but when my PC's motherboard died earlier this month I moved them to the server to keep them safe. Doh... The IT guy has been in all day today trying to sort it, and he has to be back tomorrow to carry on. Oh, and this morning the water heater burst too.

But other than that.... It's ok. The view out of the window from my desk is pretty enough. Not quite as interesting as looking out over the Quay like at the last place, but at least I can watch the leaves change colour this Autumn. When I turn round and look though the door I can see cows in the fields! The skylights let in loads of light too, back end of September and we didn't need any electric light on at all today!

We're all in the one room too, which is cozy. For the most part we all get along, but it's a big noisy for using the phones. The Boss wants to put some divisions up, but the rest of us don't think it's necessary. Maybe we can talk him round. Or just let him box himself in and leave the rest of us free if he needs privacy. He IS the Boss after all.

And now that I'm settled in with my photo of the kids, my Cath Kidston cup & tea pot, and collection of toys (gift from my kids), and all my other bits and bobs, I'm starting to feel a bit happier. And a little bit less stressed.

Just need the IT guy to finish mending stuff now. (Mental note to buy more Jaffa Cakes to keep him fuelled!)

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
