Things that make you smile


I miss having a family. Not that I knock my mum and dad, but I wish I had brothers and sisters. I wish I had a big family, even with the hassle that goes with it. That's why I'm so glad that I get on well with Yorkie's family.
Got this today from his mum:

Dave and I have just come back from the most marvellous holiday we have had in a
long time.

We've had a fantastic weekend, being wined, dined and
entertained. And the entertainment ranges from Ceilidh (can't spell it) and
disco, to pool, spa, sauna, and games room. Not to mention the
treasure hunt (which we won!).

My proposition is that I would
like to share this with you, all the people that I love.

I know
it's a bit early to start talking about Christmas 2006, but this is one of those
things that has to be sorted early.

Rather than doing the
Christmas thang, I thought we might do Hogmanay instead, which will be Saturday
30 until Tuesday 2nd.

The venue is The Angus Hotel, in
Blairgowrie, Perthshire, where it snows a bit, but not too much. About five
hours drive from Bozer.

A bit nearer for Mark and Charlie (we waved
at them as we went past!).

I would like to give this to you as your
Christmas Present for 2006.

If it's not what you want, that's
OK.

Whichever way, please let me know your feelings soon, so I know
whether I'm booking for just me and Dave, or the whole blooming tribe ;
)

I really would like to do this, for all of us.

love
to you all

And later this from Bob:

Ho do? I'm resending this cos my mail seems determined that it's not sent (and
it's not responding to the usual abuse).
Thanks to the pair of you for the
game, it's fecking awesome!
Chaar are reight hard and they are, on a regular
basis, handing it out to me something rotten.
I go by the name of Lenith
Skyrunner should either of you catch me when I'm online (that being whenever I'm
at home).
And can you explain to my bruvva that mum is a bit mental (assuming
you've read the email regarding christmas 06).
Anyhoo, i think that about
sums it up again,
Take care,
-Bob

Things like this make me happy... Really happy. Daft, isn't it! But I feel included, which is very important to me. Especially since they are going to be my in-laws.
Did I mention that his family contact me now, rather than him! Difference being I check my emails and reply to them! LOL!

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…
