Jacs & Co

What a lovely day I have had! There I was just sat at the laptop tapping away and getting some work done and the phone goes. I almost didn't answer it, expecting another "Can I speak to a mrs C. O-ak-ez?" to which I will always answer no. Any one who doesn't know that I am a miss, and that Oakes is pronounced "oaks" isn't some one I want to speak to. infact, if i am not called, Chig, Charlie or Charlotte they can all feck off!

As it happens, this voice said "Hi Chig!" and I knew it was Jacs. She and David had pulled a sickie fom work, and it's the school holidays and the kids were home, could they come over for the day and see me? HELL YES!!! They arrived around 1pm and offered to take
me out for lunch so we all piled into their Punto and drove up to the Greaves where they have a play area for small people. Me and Jacs talked weddings and babies, poor Dave didn't want to get to involved (I think the conversation on which bras to wear when you go trying on wedding dresses freaked him out a bit).

Their wedding is in October, and Jacs was supposed to go dress shopping with her mum on Monday too, but she was sick so had to postpone. she reckons she would rather not go shopping with her mum anyway, who is making comments on her weight. Not the kind of thing a bride needs comments on!
We thought we'd have a look round Lancaster to
see what wedding dresses we could try on, and after lunch sent Dave off with the kiddies while we went off to the only wedding dress shop I know of in Lancaster proper. And it was SHUT! Gutted..... we went round some of the other shops like Monsoon and Next to see what they had, and then called in to the fabric shops - where I have managed to find some green veleveteen! I wonder if Yorkie will go for that instead? It's the closest thing I have found to what he wants.

We went back to mine and I nipped out to get Yorkie from work, and then (
attempted) to cook tea for us all - but we're running out of food now, and what we did have I didn't keep a close enough eye on and it caught on the bottom of the pan! Still, everyone ate what they were given, and even had some of the chocolate cake I made!

I wish
they could have stayed longer. I don't have room to put people up at the moment with the home office, and i can't afford to cateer for more people at the moment, but I don't care. I miss my mate, and I want us to go out and do bride stuff together! And I want to spend more time with the kiddies too. Mia is walking well now, and starting to talk, and Caitlin is growing up so fast it's scarry. And I'm missing it.

Good news tho
ugh, is that I should still be able to be caitlin's god mother regardless of not being catholic. Jacs and Dave think the rules are a little less strict these days, and so long as 1 god parent per child is catholic it should be fine. I am still technically a christian after all.

Hopefully jacs might be coming up aga
in before too long. It wil depend how much money they have as to whether they will all come, as I have room for one person to stay over, but if they all come they'll have to stay at the local travel lodge.

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…
