Honeymoon Ideas!

We're wanting to go to Croatia for our honeymoon. It's somewhere we have both been as kids - before the nasty old war that tore the place up - and bothfancy going back to.

We fancy going all inclusive too, so that we don't have to worry too much about taking huge amounts of spending money with us and so on... plus it's something I've always wanted to do. It's so idulgent!

So... we looked at Hotel Epidaurus and Osmine and they both looked great! There's also a few on here we liked the look of. But think this is the one!!!

There's SO much on offer!

A little bit worried about the amount of time it takes to get to the hotel, but if we take some extra batteries for the DS's and a good book or two each we'll be fine... and maybe a packed lunch and dinner. I will have to speak to the holiday punters and make sure that bit of travel is included... coz you never know!! Hidden costs and all that!

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…
