Stuff for Tara's Hen Night

Weerrrrr the colours a bit off on that photo!

So this is part of my get-up for Saturday Night and Tara's hen night.

She's having a Titanic themed murder mystery night and we're all going dressed as flappers!

I've got myself a (rather dodgy) short black wig (which is giving me a serious headache trying to keep on over my long hair), a headband with feathers, some big red beads and matching bracelet.

I've raided my wardrobe for loose fitted long back top, and a two layered mid-calf white skirt with floral print, which togther with the beads are close enough for me! I draw the line at fringe!

Although, right now, I am stuffed full of a cold. A nasty one at that. The back of my throat is red raw, my nose it stuffed up and snotty, my sinouses are killing me and I keep sneezing. I spent all of yesterday sleeping on the settee in the frount room (with the exception of Darren calling round for a few mins to pick some stuff up for his kids, and for the Big Brother eviction / re-admission, oh, and to ferry Yorkie about as usual). I've been living off toast and soup - which is quite nice but not good for my wasit line.

But I'm a bit clearer of head today - hence to shopping trip this morning and this post now, so with a bit of luck come Saturday I'll be fit and well.

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 wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright 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…
