I've seen Glenn!

Went into town this morning after dropping Yorkie off at work. The plan was to buy some more hair dye to cover my roots (the blond and grey is showing under the red now - pout) and call into my second bank to organise internet banking so I can use this account (that I haven't touched for years) for my Avon, therefore not confuse my money for Avon money etc... I though "Quick job, park at the supermarket, buy hair dye from there, dive into the bank, ask for e-banking, home by 9.30"

HA! No chance! On a Wednesday this particular bank doesn't open until 10am... I was in town at just after 8.30 - with the dye already bought, and nothing better to do.

So I did something random... I went to the local market to see if Micro Markets was still trading. And they are - just - and guess who was in the stall? None other than GLENN! So I went up for a chat.

The first couple of minutes was a strain on him... he wsn't too happy, or maybe nervous. I asked him how his business was going and he wasn't for giving much away. He did admit to having "just" got back onto ebay (ahem), but then things started to flow again.... hee hee hee

He's signed up for some UK dating agences... online ones... free ones... you know the type. I think on line dating is great of it's done right - three cheers for Match.com and UKSingles etc (I recall my single days with fond memories). He's signed up for GirlsDate4Free.net and he has several girls on the go. Bunny boilers the lot of them by the sounds of it. He does seem to attract that type....

Still, nice to see that nothing ever changes, for better or worse!

And speaking of changes; it my high school reunion on Friday! It's being knocked down and a new school built on the grounds (why??) so it's an all years do. Sadly, we can't bring our other halves. I would have LOVED to have shown Yorkie off.

Angela's going with me - we've been mates since we were like 5 or something, on and off, and have recently got back in touch via friends reunited (god love the internet!), Ailsa might be there too, she's the one who told me about the reunion in the first place so she should be there!

I can't help but wonder who else might turn up. Some I look forward to more than others... like friends you just drift from (and want to get to know again), bullies (who you want to be more successful than), and good friends you just fell out with (maybe you'd rather see the bullies!), but there's always the chance that as it's an all years thing that the people that cross your mind wont even be there, or if they are you don't bump into them. And then there's sods law which means that the one person you DONT want to see, will be the first person to walk into.

I'll take my camera, and let you know!

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…
