24 Hour Drinking - I told you so!

After all the fuss and hassle over the 24 hour drinking licence, look what's happened.

NOTHING!

Let me show you some quotes from the BBC:

'Business as usual' in city clubsPolice say the first Friday night of 24-hour drinking in Sussex and Surrey passed off peacefully.

Smooth start for 24-hour drinkingNew licensing laws allowing 24-hour drinking begin without the widely predicted violence and bad behaviour.

So, is all went well? Are all the people who where SO against it eating their words?

Cold night deters rowdy drinkersPolice say cold weather in Kent helped the first Friday night with longer pub opening times pass off peacefully.

Weekend 'big test for drink laws'Police say the first weekend of 24-drinking in Kent and East Sussex will be an "unknown quantity" for the force.

Mmmm, so it was just a coincidence that violence etc didn't rise, is it? Well, on the news this morning (not on the bbc site yet), guess what? The SAME APPLIES to the weekend! SHOCK HORROR! Look, we're not all screaming, murderus lunatics because we can drink when ever we want!

And, you see how it says up there "Weekend big test...." blah blah blah. Well, as we seem to have passed that test, the test is now going to be the Christmas period.

For gods sake, the majority of people are sensible, reasonable humans who know how to act socially.

GIVE IT UP! YOU'VE BEEN PROOVED WRONG! 24 HOUR AVAILABLITY OF DRINK DOESN'T MEAN WE'RE GOING TO BE SLOSHED 24 HOURS! YOU LOOSE!

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
