Family

Had quite a busy weekend!

Spent most of Saurday in town, after dropping Yorkie off at work I ordered some flowers to be made up for my Nan (She was 80 on Tuesday) and then went to buy birthday prezies for our nephews - and popped into Lancaster Market to set up the FTP for them. Although, they said they know all about FTP, so why didn't they do it them selves??? Instead of me working on a saturday for nothing!

On Sunday we got up bright and early and headed of to St, Helens to see my Nan. We spent a few hours with her, having a natter and catching up with my Family gossip (I never see any of them thanks to my dad! *Spit*). Turns out Nan became a great grandma 9 months ago. Cousin Anita had a little boy (nice of any one to tell me - DAD!). She liked her flowers and gave me a huge food processor for my birthday O_o

Then we drove down the Sheffield to see Rachel and her lads. Chris was 3 on the 24th last month - but we were at Fran & Simons wedding, so we couldn't make that, and Nick will be 1 on Wednesday, so we had a little celebration. Yorkie and Rachels's mum didn't turn up, one of her new cats is having fits, and there was no sign of their dad either, who only lives round the courner. Neither did their sister Janny show up! But Bob did with his new missus Alex (Bright pink hair! She's great!) Their (now former) step-dad Tony came over though. I like Tony! We stay with him when we visit for a few days. Although, he did say to me again that "Robert" (Brother Bob) was "his". Although no one else seems to know this..... And Bob was 6 when Dad moved out. I think I'd rather not be told!

We got home latish on Sunday and flopped for the rest of the night, before heading back to work work work today......

Oh, but my birthday prez off Yorkie arrived today. I can't have it until my ACTUAL birthday - but it needs testing, you know, make sure everythings ok.... I'll need to leave feedback on eBay after all..... Heehee!

Romance

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
