Oh yeah, it was New Year.....

Now that I have been back hard a work today (hee hee) it dawned on me that it is in fact Jan 3rd and I haven't said hardly a word about our New Years Eve out .... the FIRST New Years Eve out we have ever had together in 4 and a half years!

IT WAS GREAT!

Plain and simple.

We started off at 7pm at the White Cross, which is not somewhere we have ever really been to, but it's very nice. For once we were the first people to arrive. The meal was booked for 8 and the text message we had been sent said "meet at white x from 7 so even late comers have time for a pre dinner tipple"... When it got to 25 past and still no one else had arrived we got a little worried!

We needn't have though, as moments later just about everyone piled in and the table we had secured was suddenly far too small for the number of people who had turned up. It was a great crowd too:

Garry, Jill, Ray, Sarah, other Sarah, Oz, Andy, Tara, Colin, Olly, Sophie (Olly's gf, first time I meet her, very nice) and a hand full of other people I didn't know who were just there for drinks.

it was 2 mins to 8 before we left the White Cross for the Golden Dragon.... and a longer than 2 min walk to get there. I had visions of Marks birthday one year when we were late for our booking at Golden Dragon and they had given our table away.... but they did let us in. We had to go up stairs regardless of booking a ground floor table, but personally I prefer it up there. it's smaller, cozy, and fewer people for us to up set! Which is a good thing as Yorkie was exploding his cigarettes (by inserting the popping bit of party poppers in the end to see which end goes BANG) and batting balloons round the place like children.

We were very loud, and very very well fed, and very very VERY drunk by the time we left, almost 3 hours later! Part of the crowd went to the Bobbin (a MUST) and others went right back to White Cross (I think, I was a bit drunk by this stage). I was in the Bobbin crowd naturally! Which was packed full of people I know and love, and people who I just know the faces off because I love Yorkie, and people I have just a passing aquaintence with. Needless to say at midnight I kissed just about all of them! Of cause my first, best and only meaningful kiss was with my dear darling Yorkie!

Jen was there with Steph, Rick was there, Alex from LnM College.... and all the people who's names I don't know but seem to think I am cool because of either 1) putting up with Yorkie, 2) Selling the stuff I sell, 3) Having HUGE knockers..... or 4) All of the above!

At some point after midnight we wondered back up to White Cross to meet up with the others. I was STEAMING drunk, and pretending not to be. I was trying to hold a conversation with Jill, while texting her at the same time, staggering drunkenly in the dark and the rain, and did a Yorkie! I was brutally savaged by a bench! In fact, after sucessfully navigating a bin, lamp post and phone box I went completely arse over tit over it, and wrecked all my right shin, to the point where I cannot lean on it at all. The reason (apart from being totally shit faced) was as I was texting the low sat bench was hidden from my line of sight by the mobile phone I was squinting at. Walking's fine, but I never realised how much time I spent on my knees until now.... (Don't ask)

White Cross was considerably more busy than when we had left, but not as busy as the Bobbin. The first crowd there had managed to get a large seating area convinently between the loos and the pool table, and not far from the bar. I was bought some vast quantity of Vodka and coke, and much of the rest of the night is a blur.

I know there was more kissing of friends, a very long, drawn out and dull conversation wih some guy called Stuart (who I palmed off onto Jill, who then passed him onto Sophie), a good long Guild Wars natter with Oz, and Andy asking me if Yorkie was able to satify me in bed.... To which the answer was a resounding "HELL YES" which went down very well with Andy indeed - in fact I think he bought Yorkie a drink on the grounds of that statement....

They started kicking out at about 3ish I think, which was good timing as I was just starting to want to go home. Again, more kisses with friends, and then..... Nothing. I recall nothing else of the night. Apparently we walked. Apparently I wanted Pizza despite being full to bursting of Chinese (so it's a good job no where was open). Apparently I managed to get undressed and into bed without being sick (No meds over XMas saw to that). So apart from the hidious broozing to my right leg, it was a damned good night out!

Glad we finally managed to do it!

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…
