Easter Weekend!

We must be mad, the Hubby and I. After the kids were all settled in bed on Saturday night, we started to get the Easter eggs laid out for them, and to fill the plastic eggs with treats for their egg hunt. At this point we realised that we had no idea where their little green felt basket was that they have used in previous years. It wasn't where we thought it was, and we couldn't see it anywhere.

So we thought we would just "knock together" some little bags instead. One for each boy. It seemed like such a simple and easy solution.... I mean, it's not like I've never made bags out of felt before, any they din't need to be amazing quality because they are only for the egg hunt the next day.

But that was before they got complicated. We couldn't agree in a handle to start with. I won the argument with a single strap going over the top of the bag, ideal to carry on one arm, and more importantly, QUICKER than two. The I had the amazing suggestion of appliek Easter motifs like eggs or bunnies. Hubby cut out some bunny shapes for me to stitch on.

At 11:30pm we were still stitching bags and not even hidden the eggs yet!!!

We were all done just before midnight, including a pile of completed bags, half a carrot, and some Easter Bunny Poop (jelly beans) all arranged just outside the kids bedroom.

It was so very worth it the next morning though. Around half six we heard Georgie come out of the bedroom, spot all the stuff and call out "Tom! Look!!" then toddle back into the bedroom to fetching his brothers before sitting down in the rug to demolish the "poop". Jack & Tom took charge of the egg hunt, and made sure that each of them had the same number of eggs at the end. Tom declared it the "best day of my life!" and Jack said it was "Awesome!"

Job Done!

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
