Yay! Puss Cats and Music!

As we're going away for XMas me and Yorkie have agreed that it's not a good idea to take all the gifts we have been given WITH us, due to limited space in the car. Therefore we have been opening the odd little thing of an evening. Naughty we know, but hey. We're all grown up (ahem) and we'll do what we want! Haa haa haa!

So far I have opened 2 of the 4 from Jacs (some brillaint CDs and Thorntons chocs... the woman knows me so well! I love her!) and a perfect gift from Andrea, which is a beautiful pussy cat earing and necklace set!!!! Wonderful! Yorkie is going to be so mad when he sees them because he was looking for a broach for him mum in the same style, and can't find one! Should have started shopping sooner sweetie!

Just come back from a nice long lunch with Andrea. We meet in the Lancastian, the first time I've been there since I graduated. It was not the best choice of venues! Nothing wrong with the place as such, but who should turn up but Andrea's ex husband's WIFE! And they wouldn't serve us any food because they had too many staff do's on over lunch time (the ex's wife's do being one of them) so we supped up and bogged off to the Bobbin.

Driving back into Lancaster was a nightmare! Andrea was trying to follow me through the short cuts I know, and we almost lost each other. Having a bright yellow car has it's benifits! People can spot you and follow you! We parked up in Sainsbury's car park, but had to get a ticket. And guess who was on ticket duty? PETE! (ok, many of you wont know who Pete is. He used to be a friend when I worked at Sainsbury's, but the friendship became "strained" when I found out he's been trying to bed my ex, before and after he became my ex, and ended all together when his manic attention seeking and fake suiside attempts got a bit too much!)

Me and Andrea had lunch in the Bobbin, nattering about Glenn, FB, SB and the fate of MM. It's doomed! We all know that! We fantasied about how easy it would be go get Glenn into serious trouble with the tax people and police, it would only take a phone call to put a stop to all his illegal activites and finish MM off for good. I guess we're just too nice to actually do it. Shame....

We laughed at our men who are scarrily similar in so many ways. Clive has also failed to aquire Andrea a Christmas present so far, and has been known to - in a panic - buy somthing from the local off licence on XMas Eve! If it wasn't for Andrea being so organised there wouldn't be a gift for his son and his missus either. I hope he knows how lucky he is to have Andrea, I wont do Yorkie's shop for him! I'll go with him, or buy what he asks me to buy if he can't get to town, but I wont do the choosing etc. Not after last year!

I hated saying good bye to her. Daft isn't it, I'll see her again in a couple of weeks, but that'll be NEXT YEAR! We're going to meet up in the New Year, compare weight gains *grin* and we're talking about going back to the gym together, although knowing us it'll end up just visiting the sauna! I really need to get back into going to the gym, and with the pool re-opening in the New Year I have no excuses left. If I want to get slim I should work on burning fat and toning myself, not just dieting.... And if Andrea comes with me we can keep up with the gossip together! I'm too slack when it comes to keeping in touch with people. I plan on changing that in 2006!

Is it too soon to start making out new years resolutions? Yeah, I suppose it is, but there's no harm in thinking about what they might be.... I guess it'll be the ususal; Loose weight & go the gym, be a better friend and relative & keep in touch with people, save some money in my saving account instead of leaving at 28p for another year! I have a wedding to save up for now! I'm sure I'll refine it later and post it up for New Year.

I'm feeling all sentimental right now. I've seen or spoken to most of my friends now for the last time this year. I know we're seeing people on New Years Eve, but the people I'm not seeing are the people I feel closest to, people like Jacs and Andrea. It's probably not helping that I am listening to some fairly soppy tunes right now too. Tunes that remind me of happier days in the MM office when me and Andrea where still happy to be there, tunes that remind me of nights out with Jacs. It's been such a change this year for MM, this time last year we were having parties and nights out with Glenn and Lynn and we were all such good friends. Look at us now. It's stupid! No one's talking to each other, the companies going bust, and we're all skint. And as for Jacs... I hardly ever see Jacs and I'm missing her daughters growing up. I hardly know Mia at all, and Caitlin is growing up so quickly that it's scarry!

I'm going to have to go and find something to do before I make myself cry!

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…
