Hard Graft

I've not been well. Really really not been well. I have some kindof horrible cold virus which I was dealing with well enough until Friday, when I lost the hearing in my left ear. Which still has not come back (with the exeption of about 25min yesterday morning when it came back to tease me) .

Iam full of flem and nastiness, I can't sleep in bed for coughing and have been sleeping on the settee propped up to stop myself from drowning on the green lumpy slime that seems to have built up in side me.

It's nasty.....

But I still have a living to make, and no sick pay coming, so I have had to keep on working. I took Saturday off and on sunday made the mistake of checking my emails.... SO MUCH WORK HAD BACKED UP! So I had a new reason for not being able to sleepand started slugging away in the early evening.

I finished half an hour ago (oh, and I did get a couple of hours sleep in too).

The one thing that took the most time, and which I am fairly proud of, is the "fashion show" for Leeds Bridal Village. Click here. I'm not saying it's a perfect bit of work... it's huge and takes longer to load than I would like, but right now I can't afford the software I need to convert it into a smaller file format. But I enjoy it now it's done.

I just hope my client likes it too!

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…
