I got the call!
Just as I was leaving work today my mobile went: an unrecognised local number. I hesitated before answering it - normally I only bother answering the phone to people I know (I can be a bit anti-social like that) - but my eldest was going to the school disco with friends and there was a chance it was one of the other parents home numbers (if I only have their mobile number stored) so just in case.... I answered it.

It wasn't one of the mums. It was Healthub aka the Fertility Clinic! Had I got the letter they sent? I hadn't....! The lady went on to explain that they had offered me and hubby an appointment for the 26th Nov, but that they actually had a cancellation for Tue NEXT WEEK if I wanted it!

Now I really really wanted to say yes, but Hubby will be working and unable to get time off, and we'd have no one to mind the kids at such short notice. It would seem a little off being my children to the fertility clinic! But I took her up on the original appointment for the 26th. Me and Hubby are both off work that day and it gives me time to find someone to watch Tom & George for a couple of hours while we go.

I am so very very excited!

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
