Got my babies back


2pm I rolled up at the camp site and was met my a host of leaders from different Beaver groups. I was asked which child was mine and got shocked looks when I said I was picking up SIX! But one of our leaders spotted me and all my charges were found and bundled into the car. He also told me that my cakes were the first to get scoffed (which always pleases me to hear, especially when other parents are having cakes shoved back at them to take home - really can do without the temptation).

Somehow we crammed all the stuff back into the car. Jack called some of the mums to let them know we were on our way back to the scout hut, and with the only exception of one Beaver feeling a bit ill as we came round the town centre, it was a thankfully uneventful drive back. I did at one point ask if they'd had fun, and who had earned a new badge, and was almost deafened by the reply!

They had fun!

Very quiet for the rest of the day. I chucked my boys in the shower when they got home and they spent the rest of the day in their PJs playing on their tech while I washed all the gear and started a "lost and found" post on our scout groups Facebook page. Then it was pizza and bed....

It's Beavers again tomorrow, and Cubs too for Jack. Our first session without a hut of our own to go to. Going to be interesting getting everyone where they need to go, and in time!

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
