Our Skylanders Party!

IT'S SWAP FORCE DAY!

I have been planning today for some time. In fact, I wrote most of this post a few days ago so that it would not interfere with the actual day (although since Skylanders is a two player game and at least 3 of us want to play at any one time I will no doubt wind up on here waiting for my "turn"). We are SO in to Skylanders.

Today is the day that Swap Force finally got released in the UK. It's been the hot topic of conversation in this house for weeks, months even, but this week we've been counting the sleeps until Swap Force. And today we  have.....
  • Starter Kit which has been on pre-order for delivery for MONTHS
  • Dark Edition which was an after thought coz me and the Hubby really wanted the limited edition characters.
  • 4 Swappables
  • 1 Non-swabbable
  • 2 FREE LC Hex (one with each version, stashed one away)
  • 1 FREE Giant! (put away for Christmas)
  • Adventure Pack (put away for Christmas)
  • Battle Pack (put away for Christmas)


I promised the kids a little Skylanders party today, just for the 5 of us. I've been and bought a Skylanders cake from the supermarket (while scouting round for good prices on Swap Force figures) and ordered a pizza delivery for dinner. I've even bought some fizzy pop just to really push the boat out and let the kids go totally mental!

So we have a weekend of gaming ahead of us. I doubt we'll answer the phone or door to anyone (other than the pizza man) and will likely stay in our PJs for most of it too. The kids will stay up late and get over tired and bicker with each other, and us. But for the most part we'll have fun. After all, it's not often that we get a great new family treat like this. A nice early night on Sunday will see us all right for the week ahead.

Here's hoping they release a new wave of characters in time for Christmas, it would solve a lot of present buying issues!

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
