Back on the go!

Well now, it's past the 6 month mark - just - and things are on the move again!!

Kate (Yorkie's mum) has found the green velvet we needed for Yorkie's suit and the nippers trousers, and there might even be enough left over to make a waist coat for the best man! Winner!!

Today I went over to Burnley to see mum who had booked appointments to see the photographer, cake maker, and caterer.

Pete, the photographer, seems lovely. He ran though what he does, explained about the album, choosing our photos, what happens to the spares, how he tends to organise taking the photographs, the prefered locations etc. He wants to see me and Yorkie for a trial run. He calls it "Engagment Photos" where we go over to Towneley and he takes some snaps of us. We get to keep them for free. This way he can get the feel for us, we can get used to his methods, and we get to see for real what he can do and the finished results. Sounds GREAT! And he is very reasonably priced too.

Next we went to see Jean, the wedding cake lady, who only turns out to be an old school friend of my mums! We didn't know this before hand, but she instantly regonised my mum and they got to chatting. And then gave us a discount on the cake! Like, over £100 discount!!! She's fine with my complicated cake requests (1 sponge layer, 1 fruit layer, 1 chocolate layer, and a green ribon to match the velvet) and is going to email me the photos of different stands available.

Then it was off to see Diane the caterer, in her BEAUTIFUL kitchen which while being part of her home was about the same size as my HOUSE! We ran through the menu mum had planned, and Diane suggested some of the things I wanted but mum had steared away from (like a red meat option, and soup alternative for the starter). She was even very very accomdating to dad's karotine allergy, suggesting a soup without carrots, salad without raw red peppers, and cooked carrots well apart from the other food.

A very productive day! Next step is to finalise the guest list and get the invites out, and organise a day when me and Yorkie can have our photos taken. Mum is sorting out a day when I can see the beautician about my hair and make-up, and we need to sort things out with the videographer and DJ.

Oh... and there's a trip to Leeds in order to try on the dress again! Although rather than lose wieght, I seems to have GAINED some, so I'm not looking forward to that!

Mum is even contacting the local posh hotel about the wedding night! Isn't she a STAR!!!

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…
