New Year 2006/7


I'm ill.

I feel fuggy and sleepy and grumpy. I want to sleep. I have a headache.

I blame Bob.

Still, New Year is New Year and we'd been invited to Jacquies so I wasn't going to stay home and go to bed early! I have the rest of the year to be ill. We were late again - as usual. I made a point of fibbing to Yorkie about what time we had to be there. I told him 5pm, when I'd arranged 6pm with Jacs. We arrived at 20 past 6. That man can drag his heals for Britain!!!

Jacs was still at work so David entertained us for a bit until she got home. Caitlin was allowed up until midnight, but Mia went off to bed. Lea came round too and we all had a Chinese Take Away (strange place that doesn't do sweet and sour pork balls, but instead sent battered pork with no sauce, not even dipping sauce) and played Lord of the Rings Trival Pursuit. Me, Jacs and Lea Vs Yorkie, Dave and Caitlin. Caitlin went to bed after midnight and I think Lea wished she had done - LOTR not being her thing I think - but regarless OUR TEAM WON! With 6 pie's to 3 (or it might have been 6 to 4, but we kicked butt regardless)

We turned in about 3am, and then poor Mia woke up. Keeping Jacs and Dave up for the rest of the night. Poor little mite's not too well either.

New Years day was busy, after sausage butties (thanks Dave, yum) and a brew we had to head off from Jacs and visit my Nan. We still had her presents from us and from my mum, but with us working and Nan being ill we'd not had chance to bring them over. Two of my aunts were there; Ann (who is living there with her 3 kids and dog until she can get her abusive, alcholic git of an ex husband out of her house) and Brenda (who I haven't seen in ages, but who is going with Nan to France to see my dad next week) and we had a bit of a catch up. I think poor Yorkie was a bit stunned by being surrounded by so many short loud Oakes women in one place! Still, he survived it.

From there we went home, and I went to bed because I felt poorly. I still do! I've been to work the last couple of days, and took Fizgig for his last set of jabs, and my brain hurts! So I'm going to sloap off and have a rest before picking Yorkie up from work too. Apparently we have to go shopping tonight. And I really don't want to!

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'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…

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
