Shopping spree!

Ha! Can you tell I got some money in my bank account today???

I have bought some new first size nappy covers to replace some of the older tatty ones we had, we opted against the MioSolo all-in-ones in the end as they aren't tumble drier safe and we NEED to get things wash and dried quickly in this family. I have bought more MioSoft covers though coz I simply LOVE the Bambino Mio brand, and some new nets to go in the nappy bucket. They should arrive in a couple of days. I've got a new Mio wet nappy bag too since we lost the old one on a trip out somewhere and it was a great thing to have with cloth nappies on days out.

I have also found a couple of baby wraps / slings which work the same way as my beloved Moby wrap - but for a fraction of the price as they are not branded. I've ordered a red one and a purple one. I should always have a clean one now!

And I have ordered some Raspberry Leaf Tea and Evening Primrose Oil to assist in getting my "bits" ready for this induction I'm going to be having at some point. I have no idea how much of what people say is true, but every little helps. I certainly had less drugs during, and fewer stitches after, the two births where I have used RLT & EPO. Since Bean is likely to be a whopper I'm going to give it another shot.

I get my proper wages though at the end of the week. I might just have to splash out of that Moses basket cover & liner set I've pinned from eBay, and the mattresses for the cot & crib, and maybe even the bouncy chair.... Then we should be pretty much set for pre-baby purchases. Anything else can wait a few months after baby is here (mattress for cotbed, new cushion & cover for the high chair etc). All I'll have left to do is wash and sort the nappies and baby clothes!

I am soooooooooo looking forward to getting my stash of baby clothes out again!

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
