At the risk of sounding cheap.....

..... I love George at Asda

Some of you out there might think that's sad, but remember I'm not the richest of people, and after all, fashion changes so rappidly that I do not feel inclined to spend a fortune on something I'm only going to wear for one season, maybe 10 or 12 times at the MOST, and evening wear is lucky to get out of the house twice in a season. George sell some real tat I know, but they do also have some very very nice stuff too, and very reasonable prices!

The reason I'm saying all this is because me and Andrea had a really nice "girly-day" yesterday!

Once I'd got home from taking Yorkie to work I had a text from Andrea telling me she was in MM until about 1pm, and that she had brought me some boots she thought I might like. Would I pop in after my WW meeting. Then she came on-line so I messaged her to say that as she was there now I'd come right over. After all, MM is only a 2 min walk away from where I go to WW. We had a natter, and decided to go for lunch after my meeting. Which we did!

Lunch (at Weatherspoons - we're skint you know) took over an HOUR! Not that the food took a long time to arrive or anything, but we were nattering that much! Hee hee hee, she was asking about my Dad and his mad-cap France plans, which sets me off on a huge rambling rant. Andrea laughs at my stories, I wonder though if she's not sick of hearing it, but she does keep asking, so maybe she does find it that entertaining, which is fine by me because it's a pet story for me. After lunch we thought we should do a spot of shopping. Andrea has a night out coming up and wanted a nice new outfit to wear..... naturally I thought this was a GREAT idea!

We did the few shops in Morecambe, with little success, and then drove over to our local Asda and Mattalan! Please don't laugh! Apart from the fact that the stuff is "low cost" we are both loosing weight, we don't want to spend a lot of money on something that's going to be too big for us soon!

We did get some lovely stuff though. Andrea got her self a beautiful chocolate brown gypsy / cowgirl skirt from Asda and some jewelry to go with it. I finally found a faux-fur gilet that I was willing to pay for! It was only £18.00!!!! I tried it on and Andrea was telling me I looked so good in it I would probably have paid ANYTHING, lol! I also got a necklace and matching earings. It's a shame this photo doesn't do the outfit any justoce, but there's only so much of me I can fit on the web cam, lol! Trust me, with long boots and short jeans this looks great on me!

Andrea had taken half the shop into the changing room with us, and apart from the skirt was not happy with any of it - well, that's a girls perogative after all - so we bought the bits we liked and moved on to Matalan. We toured the whole place twice before we found what we wanted, but the outfit Andrea's picked is going to look great on her. She found a faun colored top and shrug, which are enough to cover up the gonna-get-cold bits, while still showing off the detail on the skirt.

By the time we came out of Matalan, it was dark, and the alarm went off on my phone to go and pick Yorkie up from work!!! We've agreed to go and do it all again soon, in Lancaster this time. We are going to treat our selves to something a little more up-market next time; Andrea wants to get a dress from Monsoon for Clives XMas do!!!!!!! I don't think I'll be buying anything from there, but I'll be trying it all 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…

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…
