Randomness

I actually FORGOT to eat any lunch yesterday I was so busy when I got in from the Marina.

Was it ebay Sales?
Web site sales?
New web site design customer?

Nope. I had to clear out all the shite that has collected in the far end of the kicthen (which was supposed to be a small dinning area, but which is actually used at a storage space and pet care centre for the furry little monsters we choose to love).

The reason? I have a chap coming round today to measure up the kitchen and try to convince me that it's his company's brand of kicthen we should be getting installed.

It took TWO trips to the tip (but I only have a Micra. A larger car would have done it in one with room to spare) and 5 hours!

It's strange the things you find when you start chucking stuff out. Like, for example, all the fabrics I bought from my cross stitch abou 6 years ago and then lost. In a bag, in side another bag, in a box, in the kitchen. Why didn't I think to look there FIRST?? I also found a packet of photographs from a holiday to Amsterdam I have with my best mate Jacs, her feller Dave, and my ex Shaun. It was allegedly so that I could study up for my Van Gogh dissertaion, but in reality, it was an excuse to get legally stoned! Although poor Jacs was pregnant at the tim and had to be good.

Well, I say good. The reason I know these photos are hers and not mine is that while I was flicking through them I found one of a half naked David walking towards a bed... from where the photo ghad clearly been taken.

I didn't look any further, and texted Jacs to let her know I had them!

Bizzarly, yesterday evening, I was talking to Kate (mum-in-law-to-be) and we found our selves laughing about weed (and how one of her cats used to eat it, and then spend two days in the bottom of the wardrobe!) and visits Amsterdam... and planning to take a short trip out there in Feb! Have I mentioned how much I love my mother in law??

How ethical is it to get stoned with your in laws?

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…

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
