Worrying......


Last night we had a fit of madness, and desided to go through all the boxes I have on the shelves in the front room. I have a set of nice silver shoe-box-style boxes that I use to store the random tat that everyone collects, you know the kind of stuff, things you don't use, but don't really want to throw away, like birthday card, bits and bobs that might be usefull one day, that kind of thing.

It's a job which needs to be done every now and then, and we always end up with a couple of empty ones at the end when we've thrown away stuff we haven't found a use for in X amount of time.

I also have a larger wooden box, bit like a chest. It was full of the same sort of random stuff. I thought we could use it as our toy box, and keep our trading cards and stuff in it. Only, as Yorkie got to the bottom, we had a horrible discovery!

Something had been trying to make a nest in it!!!!!

Papers were chewed, a small teddy-in-a-paper-bag had it's guts ripped out, and there was even a couple of small POOS!!!!! Only a couple though, and no sign of the creater...... The cat was in the room with us, any critter moving about would have been seen.

Yorkie then recalls, last year when we went on holiday we found a dead mouse behind our front door when we got back. We thought the cat must have actually caught something and brought it in when our neighbour was in to feed her. Maybe it was the same critter???

It's very worrying though, I mean, we don't live like pigs or anything, but we are not the tidiest of people, and the way I have the furniture set up means that we don't see the edge of the walls etc unless we're having a good hoover up.....! And also, it goes to show how often I get to the bottom of that box!

The said box is in for a good clean and disinfect tonight, and we're going on a mouse-poo hunt to make sure it was a one off, and that we aren't unwittingly housing a whole tribe!

I feel quite sick!

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!
