Mum's Will


Well, well, well......

I know I didn't mention this before - I was going to jot down in a couple of days that I had been to Burnley to see mum on some official business, but I didn't think for a moment that this "official business" would be this BIG!!!!

I OWN MY HOUSE!

No, I mean, I REALLY own my house! It's in my name! Or it will be in a few days once the paper work is all finalised.

I thought I was just going down to be there while she up-dated her will (So that I don't have to go and live with my God Parents in the event of her death. I have nothing but love for my God Parents, but I think I'm I little old to need them to give me a place to live now), but no, as well as that there was much discussion about who to leave her house to (my children), who to give money to (me & my kids), and the signing over of my house (to ME)!!!!!
I can't believe it!
This means that - apart from owning the house - Mum finally sees me as a responsible adult, one which can be trusted with a house, and not just some daft money-spending girl who can't be risked with responsibility. Not that she would ever say any of those things to me, but she was right. My past relationship was a total drain on my cash flow (debt after debt after deft, "let's get a loan" etc, which would have become "let's get a loan against the house" or "let's get it morgaged", and then I would have lost the house). But now I have my own business, a great feller who wont take a penny from me, even when it's offered freely, and we're getting married and starting a family. Guess I am all grown up now! And she recognises that in me!
Thanks mum, for everything!

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…
