Swimming Badges! Yay! Oh.....

Well the boys have reached the end of another block of swimming lessons. I'm starting to think that I am expecting too much of these lessons though.... During the Easter Holidays I took Jack to the sports centre's inflatable fun day in the pool and I was suddenly very very glad I only took Jack and not Tom as well because despite having allegedly completed his Ducklings badges and doing his Stage 1 he clearly cannot swim and freaks out of he is out of his depth. I would have struggled to keep two of them going.

I'm a tad annoyed that when they got their badges this time that Jack didn't get his Stage 1 badge - but only because last week I was told to pay for his Stage 2 lessons. Has he passed Stage 1 or not? And Tom got his Duckings 3 badge... for the second time! Why has he got it twice?

We were out of the pool, the kids all but dressed, and the teacher was with her next class before I realised that the badges were not what we expected. Frankly I was just impressed that they had the badges in stock this time (we waited 6 weeks for Jack's Duckings 5 badge) and that the certificates had been filled in for the first time ever.

But I wasn't charged for the badges this time, and I was for the other two awards they have.

Their new lessons start next week. It seems that they have the same teacher, just at different times now according to the stage they are at. I think I need a chat with her to find out exactly what's going on, because I am utterly confused.

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
