Wrong shade of Ivory!

Who's have thought it? How many shades of ivory are there?? My shoes and handbag are JUST a shade or two darker than the dress!!!!

Now, to be honest, I couldn't care less. I think you would have to be looking pretty damn close at my feet to notice the difference in the shades, although Fay and the dress-maker were making it out to be an utter desaster, asking if I wanted to exchange the shoes, which I don't. OK, so the handbag is more visable to the avaerage punter than the shoes under my dress, but it's not like I'm going to be carrying it every where with me. I wont be using it in the ceremony, it wont be in the wedding photos, just keeping my bits and bobs in it for the evening do.... So I don't care that when you look close you can see a difference. Shesh! I'd end up having to take a scrap of dress to all the shoe shops with me, and I really don't want to be that obsessive!

So with that sorted out we went ahead with the dress measurements and hoop sizes and all maner of other stuff i don't mind amitting I didn't understand.

I was asked what style of embroidery I wanted on the dress (shows what I know, I thought it was just what was on the dress I tried on, but it seems I can choose a different one). I showed them the photo of the celti ring that me and Yorkie like - the angula one - and asked if that could be incorperated into the embroidery and they seem to think that it should be ok. That would be great! If I manage to get the same design as the rings onto the dress.... how lovely would that be? OK, so only me and Yorkie woul really know, but I think that would be quite special!

I should get "my design" through the post in a few days, so I'll scan it in and show you all. Don't worry, Yorkie doesn't view this blog so he wont be seeing the dress! I just want to share it with you all!

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…
