Valentines Treats

I'm a little bit poor at the moment... A combination of unexpected vets bills (the cat's skin condition has flared up) and the Tax Credits people suddenly deciding that Freddie is a figment of my imagination and cutting more than a third of my payment without warning, and the drop in my maternity pay, plus the impending MOT bill (next week - yay!) has left me with a serious dent in my bank account. Right in time for Valentine's Day. Oh, and foolishly we have always had the tradition of my getting stuff for the kids, and them for me.

So this is what I have done this year: As well as buying a couple of (very inexpensive) DVDs Hubby has been wanting, I have made another pan of that Peanut Butter Fudge from the other week. He loved it and wanted more. This time I have topped it with a layer of chocolate and decorated it with "pink chocolate" hearts.

I made the kids some Valentines Chocolate Bark too and bagged it up with a home-printed lable,

And I made the kids cards.

And do you know? The kids are DELIGHTED with what they have, and the Hubby isn't sulking either. So it's all good.

I still feel like I want to spoil my beloved husband though.... I think I might just splash the cash on him a bit once I have some again! After all.... I don't only love him on Valentines Day! And he is very very VERY worth it.

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
