Getting our vows!

Well, it's arrived! The book with the ceremony in it, with the choices of vows etc in it!

Actually, it arrived on Monday, but I've so ill this week that I haven't had chance to get all hyper about it just yet.

Me and Yorkie have had a flick through it, and there are some bits that we both really like, but we want to have a good long indepth look together so we're waiting till next week before we make any choices because he's got a weeks holiday starting Monday and we can give it our full undivided attention then.

There are spaces within the plan for 3 readings. Mum wants to read a sonet, which means that Dad wants to read someting (heaven forbid that he should be out shone by my mother) which leaves a potential third slot if Yorkie wants anyone to read something, maybe one of his family members, or perhaps Ozz who seems to like doing readings at peoples weddings (he was very good at Ray & Sarah's last year), or anyone else for that matter if Yorkie wants it.

It's just another step towards making this wedding real, looking at vows and mulling over in my head what I want to say. There's always the option of wrtting our OWN vows, which sounds lovely and romantic, but I'm not too sure about actually trying. How embarasing would it be if - under the pressure of the moment - I forgot the vows that I wrote myself!!!

We think we've got the entertainment half sorted, so now we need to find a photographer, and mum wants us to have a videographer too. I assume that one company will be abnle to provide both. The car people have finally got back in touch with mum so that's another thing provisionally booked 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…
