Loom Band Addiction

Mmmm.... I seem to have got myself "hooked" on a new hobby. 

I admit it's the fact that they have been MASSIVE at Jack's school, to the point where they have been banned because (as Jack tells it) kids were selling bracelets "just for money" which caught my interest. And then I've seen some of the Mum's making / mending loom band creations.... and then they started turning up on my Facebook feed with people making Minions and other cute characters.... And in the end I just HAD to give it a go!

The kids are loving the things I'm making. I'm still only a beginner, mostly making "fishtail" pattern bracelets but I'm working up to the bigger stuff (thanks to YouTube tutorials). They keep coming to me with requests for colours and designs. Jack has asked for a whole load of Super Hero inspired designs, Tom wants Lego Movie ones. Georgie is a bit young really as everything still goes in his mouth, but he likes to try them on. Even the Hubby has a very manly loom band in earth tones, hee hee.


I'm finding it a very relaxing way to spend my evenings though. Once the kids are in bed and I'm sat with my feet up (trying to keep the pregnancy swelling to a minimum) you'll find me with a box of bands, a handful of hooks and a loom, and the iPad playing various Loom Band tutorials.


It's great fun. Jack wants to learn how to make his own, so I think once school finishes for the summer next week I will have a student of my own.

Better learn how to do it well enough to teach him then!

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
