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!

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…
