Hen & Stag Do's

Still ages off I know, but if we know what we want we can work out affording it!

I want a silly girls night out in Blackpool. I never do anything cheesy and just this once I'd like to go out and be utterly girly and pink!

I've been looking at this site: Blackpool Hen Parties, but I'm wondering if I can wangle it cheaper "per hen" by organising it myself rather than go through a 3rd party as it is currently suggesting £68.00 EACH to go to hire a limo, go to funny girls and see a strip show, and that's before getting into the Flying Handbag and Flamingo club...

Yorkie, on the other hand, wants a weekend doing Field Archery in Ireland!! Impressive yes? So I sent out an email on his behalf as I could find NOTHING to fit his critira on the web:

Hello

I am looking to book a stag trip to N Ireland next year in June. Can you recommend any where that 6 to 10 people could try out field archery for a weekend? And any accommodation near by?

Thanks Mark


And this is the responce I've had so far:

Hi! Folks,
Received this unusual request on Sunday Night
after the British Championships. If you have any ideas
please pass them on to Mark ????
Kindest Regards
Adrian

Dear Mark ????
I have sent this to several other archers.
Adrian


This does not inspire hope!!!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

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…

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…
