Alan

The key for the till mysriously reappeared in a locked draw this morning... along with the missing stamp bag. But the till draw had been tampered with and wouldn't close properly... Mmm... Something dodgy going on. I jut hope they dont try to pin it on me - with me being a temp and everything.

Having said that the day hasn't been too bad at all. A new till arrived which proved to be further fun and games. Our branch has won a 'best sales' award as so we all get a bottle of wine, even me! And I got invited tot he staff x-mas do, even though I wont be there for x-mas. Aint that sweet?

Made a new life long friend today too. One of the regulars, Alan Hawksworth, 72, enlisted my help in installing a CD copying program called CloneCD (which I happen to know a little about) on his computer. I swore I was only going to be there for 10 mins, 30 at the most. I was there ALL AFTERNOON! But he's a really interesting bloke. Been married three times, lived in 12 countries, got family that wont speak to him for all kinds of reasons, known all kinds of famous people. Bless the poor old lad, he's really lonely. I'm the first visiter he's had in what sounds like years. He's given me some fantastic photo quailty printer paper for helping him out, and unfortunatly he also gave me a couple of the CDs we copied - a Charlotte Church and some other guy I've never even heared of! He wants me to come round again some time soon and bring Yorkie with me too, but I doubt that he'll go somehow!

Left there sometime between 3 and 4 and ten waked the miles and miles to Asda to buy the food in for tomorrows 'big meal'. By the time I got there I was knackered! Yorkie'd been ringing me, worried that I'd got lost or hurt or something since he was expecting me home at 3. I didn't get in till about half 5!!!

My feet hurt!

Not much else going on. Chris has ccome round to see Jen, poor lads off work sick. And that's about it really.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…
