Taking all four boys out - alone!

Today I ventured out with the boys, all four of them, by my self!!! I didn't go far though, just down the hill to Nursery because they've been holding Stay-n-Play sessions fpr newborn to 8 years old during the holidays and I thought it would be a good idea if we went (beats being at home!)

It was great, the kids had a fab time ( apart from Tom randomly biting Jack, really hard too. Left a mark )

Freddie got fussed over a lot! I hadn't realised just how many people had taken an interest in my pregnancy, I had mums I hardly know - as in never really spoken to or simply haven't registered in my brain at all - come to speak to me about having four lads now, and how they weren't surprised he was big on account of how big my bump had been by the end of the school year, etc etc etc... I must walk round with my head in the clouds or something!

Either that or I'm spending so much time trying to herd my kids from one place to the next that I simply don't see all the other mums going "that's the mental one with three boys under 7 and a baby on the way"

I was even randomly accosted by a lady we pass walking her dogs when I'm on the school run. We always nod and smile when we pass but that's all. I had Freddie in the sling with my coat fastened up ( it was raining ) and we saw this lady on the street. "Still waiting?" She asks with a smile, so I unzip my coat a bit and reveal Freddie's little face. She almost burst with excitement!

It is nice though. I like when people make a fuss of my kids. I feel like I can't be doing too bad of a job with them if total or relative strangers look at them favourably ( rather than complain about their loud and unruly behaviour, or call social services because I've threatened to murder one of more of them in public - 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

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
