Seeing Dad

This is my Dad! (the one on the right, lol, on the left is Fay my step-mum)

Well, we went to Leeds yesterday, and from there went to York for the afternoon, and then I had to drive home again from Leeds, so I was too tired to post it last night.

We had a pretty nice day. Dad only showed himself up a small amount (the kind you can ignore, espeically since i's just the same old stuff that he's saying).

He LOVES his birthday prez from me and Yorkie though, and told me all about how he's wanted a go in a glider all him life - GOOD! That's why I bought it after all. It's nice to see he'll enjoy it though.

York was nice. We went to Dad's fave All-You-Can-Eat Chinese, so my diet is shot through again, but I guess it was worth it for his birthday (which actually isn't until Wednesday, but we can't see him on the day).

Fay told me some very worrying things though, about Dad. Nothing to do with the vast array of illnesses he swears he has, more to do with the fact that he can't seem to get his head around the money situation they are / will be in with this whole France business...... GOd, I hope he doesn't blow it. But I know what he's like, and it's nothing like he thinks he is.....

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
