All Change!

I have not been the most prolific of bloggers of late. Having 4 kids takes up SO much time! And for the last almost 18 months I have been working crazy hours at the Biscuit Factory. Working in HR I know better than most the perils of blogging about work - so I just don't do it! And the alarm clock going off any any point between 3am and 6:30am most mornings means that I simply have not had the energy to blog.

But next month I start a new job! Don't get me wrong, I have loved the Biscuit Factory, but the opportunity to work in Lancaster again doing not just the office admin stuff I have been doing for recent years, but also eCommerce (like when I first stared this blog) was just too good to pass up.

The Walker Household is a very different beast these days. Hubby is now primary carer being full time dad and house husband while I go out to earn the bacon and pay bills. Jack has passed the 11+ and will be off to the Grammar in September and is settled into proper fully fledged Scout now as well as continuing his swimming, jujitsu and his guitar lessons. The middle two are coasting along nicely. Tom has given up jujitsu even though he caught Jack up in belts, but is now a Cub and still enjoys his swimming and ukulele. George has started Beavers and ukulele too now as well as his swimming and jujitsu, and has also been taking dance classes. And as for Freddie..... Well Freddie is one on his own. He started school this year and can't wait to join his brothers in at their activities. He is also amendment that he is a girl and is passionate about unicorns and cats. We have no idea if this is a phase or if this is who Freddie will always be but he has the love and support of us all either way.

This last couple of years have been very busy, and often quite stressful, but the new job on the horizon, the relief of knowing Jack has made it to the Grammar, and finally all 4 kiddies in school, perhaps the Hubs and I can breathe again.


Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook

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
