NEW CAR!

OOoooooooOoooo! I am SOOOO excited!

This is my "new" car! It's a 2008 Ford Galaxy Zetec which has been paid for with a combination of loans (hand outs) from my folks and the hard fought for (by my hubby) insurance money from the Mitsubishi. My Dad played a blinder with the negotiations and got the price down far enough for me to able to pay for the increase in my insurance, and my tax disk out of my change and STILL have a little left over to stash away for any future repairs / next years insurance.

I've done my research I think that no matter how much I love the VW Caravelle they are beyond my price range, so the Galaxy (as a close second choice) is the car for us!

It has 7 seats and still enough boot space for my pram and shopping with all the seats up, which equates to a reasonable amount of crumple-zone should anyone else run into the back of me when I have a car full of kids! The back row of seats are proper seats, not little uncomfortable flappy efforts which makes me happier too. That was my main reason for choosing this type of car.

Most of the time I wont be using the 3rd row anyway. Only once baby is here and then only if all 6 of us go somewhere which doesn't often happen. Only in the holidays and occasional weekend. From September Tom will be at school full time same as Jack so Mon-Fri I'll only have 2 kids to ferry about.  But it's great to know that when we DO all go on a day trip or holiday together then there is a PROPER SEAT for everyone, compatible with the children's car seats, AND STILL room in the boot for all the junk we cart around with us too.

I'll be picking it up tomorrow..... I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!

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
