News from the Wedding Party

It's been a few days since we've had an update, but we are all very worried about Mark, our best man. A few days ago while visitig friends in Nottingham, he suffered a huge asthma attack and heart attack and is in hospital down there. Coops, a friend of ours, has been down to see him, and took Marks mum too, but for now he is the only one able to get down to see him and we're waiting for an up-date from him. Fingers crossed that he will be ok!

My best friend and maid of honour called me this evening. It's her wedding in October and she's off to a wedding fair tomorrow. Funds being what they are at the moment there is no way I can afford to go with her, but I'm sure she'll collect loads of stuff for us both to look at later. She's going to try to visit in a couple of weeks when we all have a bit more cash.

She thinks she has found a maid-of-honour dress for me to wear at her wedding, apparently so perfect that she almost bought it there and then just hoping that I would like it! But in all fairness, what ever she chooses for me to wear I'll be happy with. It's her day, and I trust her not to make me look stupid! She's also icked out her flowers today, red roses and some rare orchides! Her daughters will be carrying white roses, and she's planning on petals for confetti rather than the paper stuff. Sounds great!

Sadly the phone call was cut short when her youngest fell over and knocked her face against something. Poor little mite was in a state, so we'll talk again soon to arrange her coming over, and for me going over there too to see her venue!

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…
