Mum, the Gym, and Roy


BRIGHT LIGHT! Posted by Hello

Feeling some what bright and breezy today - it's a lovely warm sunny day and things are good!

Went over to Mums yesterday for her birthday - she seemed to like her gifts, though she's a bit ill at the moment, and I think totally overwelmed with the day; John's younger daughter is over from Crete at the moment with her 4yr old twins, and 3 year old, and they are running the house! Very sweet, but I could only take them for a few moments at a time and had to run and hide! Julie seems rather strung out and I think the feeling's getting passed about. John was in a flap about trying to get 101 jobs done before the forcasted thunderstorms hit - he failed, but no one noticed or cared I don'r think, lol.

Antoni made it over - it being fathers day too, and some time after his gf Adeal and and her sister Sus arrived. I met the gf last year, but the sister was new to me. they both seem lovely, and they give Antoni a suitably hard time, so they're alright by me ^_^

Got home before the sun vanished completely, but woke up feeling coughy and sick at 5am so got up and stayed up - and some how still managed to be quater of an hour late for work O_o
Glenn wasn't in yet, and Andrea was late too, so I think I've got away with it - weee!

It looks like Roy really is as good as gone though - there was another "note" today, with him complaining and swearing about having to do something at work he didn't want to do, and it being his wedding anniversary...... So fucking what??? Numpty should have booked it off on holiday - he is supposed to be manager, why didn't he "manage" and get some one to cover his day so he could have it off work! And on top of that he's swanned off with the shutter keys for the new side of the shop, so we looked closed all day. Glenn was supposed to go round and collect them - but before he vanished, he arranged for Daz and Andrea to cover his days for the rest of this week, and asked them to let him know when they would be available for shop work until he finally shuts Lancaster.... Sounds like he's gone! HAHAHHAHAAA!

Having said that - it is Glenn, he went off to clean his oven (Ehh?) and Daz seems the think that if Roy breaks down in tears, begs and pleads (which he did last time Glenn fired him) he'll get off with it and still be here. We shall have to wait and see!

I actually made it to the gym proper today! I did at least 30 reps on each of the weights, just under 10 mins of the X Ramp, and just over 10 on the tred mill. I skipped the curls - well, some one was on the mat already and if I wanted to use the Sauna before picking Yorkie up, I didn't have time to wait. In truth, I just don't like doing them and will put them off at the slightest excuse!

The sauna was full of scabby gypos so I didn't hang around long - and like I said I didn't have much time anyway, and off I went for my feller. We HAD to go food shopping (BOO!) becasue we have none, and with stock arriving tomorrow I can't go out until it's all here, checked off and listed, so really it was tonight or not at all. This usually puts us both in a heavy grump, but it seems like I'm not the only one in a good nood today, we laughed all the way round and even though we were there longer than usual, came out stilll laughing! Yorkie also bought me the purple silk dress I've wanted for weeks and weeks and weeks - reduced to just £15.00!!!!! Worth waiting for!

All in all a good day. Very happy. Going to go and try that dress on now. YAY!

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…
