Is this my future engagment ring?

Well, there it is people - the ring of my dreams! And, so long as it is in stock in my size on Wednesday morning, it's going to be mine!

Today started out like shit. All the money I paid into the bank yesterday vanished over night. Damn the first of the month, damn direct debits and damn standing orders! So it was a rush round to the local cash point so Yorkie could give me his share of the weeks bill money, as I only had £1.23 left in my account, and at least another £30.00 to go out. Double disaster - not only did the cash point NOT have any money left in it, but Yorkie's wages had not gone in!!!! He had £40.00 left over from last week, so he drew that out from another cash point half way to work, gave me £30.00 of it.

I droppped him off at work, where he pulled up another member of staff to see if they had been paid. There'd been a fault with the banking, they're getting cash at the end of the day instead. PHEW! It was starting to look like we wouldn't be buying the ring, paying the bills or going away this week at all!

I dived into the bank and paid in the £30.00 and a tenner from my purse, and hopefully we should be alright now until Wednesday when my money from Battle Heaven should clear *phew*

When I got home I finally had an email back from one of the Anglesea B&Bs I've been trying to get in touch with, saying they could book us in for our anniversary. THANK GOD! I've emailed 5 or 6 people and no one else got back to me at all! So the deposit is in the post. It's a little more expensive than the ones I had hoped to get into, but I guess they're all booked up, with them being cheaper and all. Still, the guy I spoke to on the phone was lovely and I feel much happier now knowing that the trip away is sorted out.

If all goes well it should pan out like this:

Wed am, go into town, buy the ring *Weeee!*
Noon. quick bite to eat and off in the car to Anglesea
4pm, Sign into the B&B, dump stuff, go out
Later pm, If weather is ok, find Rhosneigr Beach and have a nice romantic walk
Evening, find a nice little restraunt or pub with food, eat, make our engagement "official"

Thu am, Morning nucky, leisurly breakfast, pack up and leave by 11am
Afternoon, Take in a tourist attraction, like the Sea Zoo or something, followed by a nice big late lunch in a cafe
Late afternoon / Evening, start the long drive home, happy!

OK, so it's not a long break, and ther are any number of things that could go wrong, but hey, we can all dream. And I'm not expecting the impossible.

So now I'm happy again, if a little over excited! I still want to tell people what we're planning on doing while we're away, but after the scare with Yorkie's wage, I have to remember that something might still happen between now and then that puts our plans on hold. So I can't. BOO!

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…

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…

I hate the female body... sometimes (MEN, DON'T READ)

It's not so much that I hate it, as I hate what it does sometimes.

I am sure you all already know that I am off the Depo Jab now and am back on the pill after 8 years. it's microgynon 30 for those of you who might want to know. I was really worried about what my body was going to do to me with the switch over. I have heared all kinds of horror stories about coming off the Depo Jab (good and bad stories here) like having 6 month long heavy periods and all kinds of nastyness. I hate having periods. That's one of the reason why I started the Depo in the first place!

When I think about it, the are plently of things I hate my body doing, like sneezing, hiccuping, and basically anything that it desides to do all on it's own that disrupt what ever I'm doing. Sneezing it a pet hate of mine as I swear it's SO dangerous to sneeze when your driving! Your eyes close and your body spazems... it's can be safe!

So the thought of having to spend 1 week out of 4 either stuffin…
