No more mice?

  • Well the good news was this morning all my mouse traps were void of mice. It looks like it was just the one lone mouse, so I am feeling much happier about that.
  • I've cleared out all my kitchen cupboards today and bleached them all. The poor dishwasher is going non-stop while I make sure all my pots and pans etc are squeeky clean (excuse the pun) before I put them all away again.
  • I've also been brutal with my throwing away of stuff that I don't use. Nobody who bakes as little as I do needs 5 cake tins and 4 bun trays. So I now have 2 cake tins (incase I want to make a sandwich cake) and 1 bun tray. I've saved 1 pie dish, and 1 pizza pan, 1 lasagnia dish and most of my serving dishes as they will get used sometimes. But the amount of junk that was in there just wasn't needed. So I've filled two huge bin bags with stuff to go to the recycling centre, it'snot even worth trying to flog on eBay. And I have also thrown out over 100 chinese take-away boxes. Sure they are useful because they are microwave safe and sealable and all that, but we had a cupboard full of them! Now I have about 10, which is much more sensible.
  • Maybe this whole mouse thing wasn't such a bad thing after all......

  • Actually I have been pretty productive all round today. I have been in touch with Ann Summers and am organising selling their products on a web site and eBay (yes, I know they have their own site, but no good company will turn down new sales outlets!), AND I have set up a meeting with a potential new web page customer on Wednesday. "Kitten Fever" is looking for people to host parties (like Ann Summers, but with jewelry etc) and I thought I'd see if they'd let me sell stuff on line instead. It seems the lady who does it is already on eBay, and they do have a domain name registered but with no web site attached yet. So... she said she's like to meet me and see what I can do! Now, this can go any number of ways.
  1. She's not intrested in anything I can do once we meet
  2. She lets me sell her stuff via a web site with the normal 20% comission or what ever they do
  3. She lets me build the site proper
  • As long as it's either the second or third option I'll be happy! But I'm not building my hopes up too high. I have all my stuff ready to burn to CD to show her incase there's not internet access in the shop where we are meeting. I wish I had access to a laptop to play it on, just in case there's no computer, but I can't do anything about that right now.

  • I need to get some more sites up and running. Even if they are just the basic fee sites. I need to increase that portfolio and get some money in. But I'm making a start! Wish me luck!

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…

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…
