Progress and Provisional Bookings

OK, so I've not posted on this blog for a bit, but things have been moving on!

Mum has provisionally booked the caterer: Diane's Catering

And has sent me info on cars: A1 Wedding Cars and Champagne Carriages

AND flowers: Going Dutch

There's not much to see on Diane's web site (maybe I should offer my services??) but I am quite taken with some of the cars and flowers! This is the car I like best at the moment, it's from Champagne Carriages, and yes, it's green! Might as well carry on the theme which has been sprung on me!

I wasn't hugely impressed by GoingDutch, but I have found these people: Perfect Petals

I want white lillies, with ivy, and this is pretty close to what I want, and what's more they have a photo of the kind of thing I want doing with our cake!

I want three layers to the cake; fruit at the bottom, then sponge, and chocolate as the top layer, with lilies and ivy flowing down the side, combining these two styles on an otherwise undecorated cake. Maybe with green ribbin on the joins like this first one has in pinkish.

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…
