Well... I did a full day at MM today - first one in ages. And it was ok. The morning was hellish while I turned over in my head what I was going to say to Glenn. After all, by the start od April my own business will be trading properly, and I can't keep taking days off MM to do BH stuff.

At lunch time I bit the bullet. I went and got us both lunch and then sat in Andrea's chair (Andrea's desk faces Glenn, and since she's on holiday it was free).

Here's how I span it:

"I've been offered another job"

Glenn looks up and pauses mid chew

"It's one I can't really turn down, but..."

Glenn swollows"

I'll still be able to work here Mondays and Thursdays to do the ebay and web site stuff"

Glenn sigh and smiles - "Oh, right! So when will this start?"

"April 1st"

"Right... that's a Friday, so you'll be starting your new regeme from the.... 4th?"

"Yep"

"Oh, that's ok, right, yes, mm mmm. Ok then."

So that was easy enough. I think I chose the right lie to tell him. And it covers me all round. I'm still earning (much less, but still earning) while BH takes off, I've not left Glenn in the lurch, and if BH goes tits up, I still have a job!

Hooray!

After that the rest of the day went smoothly. I'm just waiting on my bank details to arrive and I can move onto the next stage. Phew!

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
