Popped into the the Bobbin for a "swift one" after work on Friday. Gemma had arranged to meet Mark there, and I suggedtes nipping in for a pint before toddling back home via the Chinese take-away.

That was about 6ish

We made it home about 1am!!!!

Had a damn good night though. I met one of Yorkie's old mates Lee - nice bloke! He used to live in Worsthorne, which is the next village to the one I grew up in over Burnley way, and we had a good laugh about the state of my old home town, laughed about cats, drinking stories and crazy exes. Sadly him and his misses are about to move to the Isle of Man (where he's from originaly) so we aren't gonna see much more of them, even though right now they apparently live about three streets away!

Also bumped into an old mate of mine called Pete - not really a mate any more I have to say. All the time I thought he was being supportive for me through my break up with my ex, he was actually trying to get into bed with him. Luckily Shaun has better taste than that! lol.... Pete is not the nicest, prettiest or even sanest friend I ever had. And now he's heavily over weight and missing a front tooth ( to go with his hare-lip, sneakiness, back stabbing, lying, voilent temper, possesivness), which will put him limited pulling power to an end for good - poor chap, lol

Just before closing time Yorkie staggered up to me and grunted "kebab" at me, so I took it as my que to leave. We went and got kebebs - Yorkie got chatted up by a fat bleach blonde granny - and trotted off to the car. Where is became apparent that I no longer had my car keys! Checked all my pockets, emptied my handbag, not there. Traced steps back to the pub - no keys. Back to the kebab shop - no keys.

This bunch of keys has the ONLY emobiliser for my car, so the spare keys at home are useless. It also has my house keys, and my office keys on it!

Much panicing and re-emptying of handbag and pockets - they turn up in YORKIES pocket! GRRRR! SLAP!

Gets in and Yorkie announces very loudly that he is "going to play RuneScape, and YOU can't stop me!" - Fine, laughs I and proptly pass out on the bed (where I have strange dreams of being glassed in the neck by townies.....)

This morning I had to get up and go SHOPPING! Hung over and unhappy. Yorkie crawled out of bed about 5 o'clock this afternoon! To find a nice little present left by the cat - a dead bird, clearly a protest for not getting her tea last night and having to wait for me to come home from shopping at lunch time before she gets any breakfast!

Also slightly concerned that I have started to like olives again - couple that with my strange mood, stomach pains and the fact that my last jab was well over due.... my imagination is running over time and I am not happy. It'll be nothing though. I hope

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…
