Autumn Bucket List

I should have started this a few weeks ago, I know. But with the office move, Jack's Neil Armstrong project and the blog move too I simply didn't get round to it! There's so much slipping away at the moment that I am struggling to keep up!

SO... this should give me the kick up the bum I need to get things going again - it is the half term holidays after all so some of the big stuff has to happen this week!

These are the things I am determined to get done before Winter officially starts on Dec 21st - mainly because that is WAY TOO CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS to start a lot of our festive crafts, and we still have Halloween and Guy Fawkes between now and then.


October:

Visit Lego Discovery in Manchester in the school holidays
Make Halloween biscuits and cake
Carve pumpkins!

November:

Buy our own fireworks for Guy Fawkes and have the Hubby set them off for us
Make toffee or chocolate apples
Go for a woodland walk and kick up some leaves!

December:

Make Christmas cards
Make salt dough decorations
Make Christmas biscuits

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
