Shopping on a hot day


Posted by Picasa

Gahhhh, I hate shopping. I really really hate it! Especially on baking hot days like today! And especially when I can't find what I want!

I needed to buy a Power Ranger Dino Thunder Cycle and Figure (any but the white one) for Chris, and a singing Barney the Dinosaur for Nick. Power Ranger was a piece of cake. Went to woolies, there they were, ever colour you want, so I picked up the red one. Done. But Barney....! Barney must be out of fashion or something, because damned if I could find one! Even the rocking horse shop didn't stock them. Argos did, but they didn't have any in. Nightmare! I need it for tomorrow! If only Yorkie had got off his butt and rung his sister weeks ago like I asked him too, this would be sorted!

I don't have Rachels number, but I do have Jenny's. OK, so it's the wrong sister, but I figure she'd know what else we could get and sent her a text. I hung around town for a long as my parking ticket would let me waiting for a responce, and went home.

Almost as soon as I got in, I get a message from Jenny. Nick would love anything Barney, non-singing toy, DVD etc (but I can't find any), or a book called the Gruffalo's Child. Never heared of it, but I look it up at waterstones. Ahhhh.... found it! I call waterstones in town and they say they'll hold one for me. There's never any free parking, and I've already spent all my loose cash on parking in the car parks twice today, so I set off for a walk. In this heat!

At least I got the book though, and Chris's toy, and gift wrap from waterstones too. I've not bothered with cards, at 2 and 4 years old they wont care about cards anyway, and if Yorkie wants to get them cards that badly, we can nip into the spar on the way out tonight.

I've knocked the idea of going to the gym today on the head. I'm shattered! And I did make the point of doing my "tum-holds and bum-clenches" while I was walking to town and back, so I will have done a bit to tone up and well as burn a few cals wondering round Lancaster & Morecambe. All want now is a nice long chill out with me book, and a cold drink.

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
