Accomplishment!


Yup! I have that feeling of self satisfaction that you get when you have accomplished something.

October is a hellish month for me. Expensive! VERY expensive!

I have my fellers birthday, my dad's birthday, one of my (soon to be) sister-in-laws birthday (today actually) and my step-brothers birthday this month. And this year Jacquie and David are getting married this month.

But I have been a busy bunny! I have ordered and got Yorkie's gifts via Play.com (a handfull of obsucre DVDs he had coverted for some time), I have ordered my dad's gifts (books on B&Bs in France, slightly tongue in cheek, but an honest and caring present I think) from Amazon. I have texted Jenny a happy birthday wish (foolishly left it to Yorkie to sort out his sisters card / gift... not been done!). Antoni is a bit of a mystry. I shall have to speak to mum about him. Maybe a gift voucher for HMV or somthing.

Jacs and Dave are asking for money as a wedding pres. They have (or are getting, I think) a savings account for a deposit on a house, so anything at all will help them there. Very good idea I think. After 10 years together the traditional wedding gifts of tea sets etc are a bit pointless! So as long as I have some money in my account I don't need to worry too much about sorting someting out there.

I have also completed the first week of my OU study guide and have made a start on week 2's work, AND I have started work on the first major assignment we've been given. Half way through that so far.

AND I have cleaned and (hopefully) de-fleaed the front room (down side to having such a warm september... the fleas the poor cat can't seem to shift regardless of flea collar and 'on the spot' solution - which only makes her sick anyway - had all but taken over the front room. I couldn't invite anyone round, or relax or anything. URGH!) ready for mum coming over on Sunday.

Plus a number of random web based business type things that had to be done and now I am shattered!

BUT...

I feel very satisfied with myself!

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…
