Jacquie!

I took friday off as a holiday to try and sort out this damned house - how two people can totally fill a 3 bedroom house with tat is beyond me, but Yorkie and I seem to have managed it!

I finally made it habitable towards the back end of Friday afternoon.

Jacs came over part way through Saturday - no David though. She's looking really great though, her "bump" is HUGE (well, it seems huge to me on Jacs tiny frame) but she looks really well. Caitlin is as chatty as ever!

We went to Blockbusters and got a couple of DVDs and did a bit of snack shopping (bang goes the diet for ths week), and sat around chatting and catching up. Felt like we hadn't been apart!

Went to town for a bit on Sunday, had a pub lunch and did a bit of shopping then came back for more movies and food.

She went home this morning, we dropped her at the train station on the way to work, and I miss her already. Even though she was here two nights, it seems like I hardly saw her.

I guess this is what happenes when people have kids, the pressure of being a mum 24/7 kind of stops you from doing the things you used to do all the time and think nothing of. I know she's happy, she loves being a mum, she's great at it and it suits her, but I miss the Jacquie that was my mate, out in the pubs, getting drunk and chatting up the bar staff.

Guess we all have to grow up sometime though. It's ony people like me who fight it off!

It's strange being back in the office on my own again. Andrea was in for the morning, but once she's gone, I was all alone. I used to be alone in theoffice all the time, but i really felt it today. At least It's given me chance to tidy up some of he mess Gemma's left me in - I find out today that more than half the jobs I asked her to do last week haven't been done, which has left we with a whole string of pissed off customers! Not happy about that! Fair enough, people slack off on their last week, but not when it gets a mate into shit!!!

Feel a bit fed up actually. Probably just hormones (my jabs due this week) and an adrenalin come-down from the weekend. I made a post in DA for the first time in ages - they're getting a bit stroppy about people, including the threats starter (me) not posting, but given that I'm sat at computers all day - and the ones at work are giving me hassle - all I wanna do when I come in is write my journal and get as far away from the damn things as possible!

Maybe I'll feel batter later in the week

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…
