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 one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

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
