Slugish

It's one of those mornings. I need to be setting off for work in half an hour. My brain's notin gear yet.

Feeling fed up at the moment. I'm sticking at 12 stone again. I really need to get my work out DVDs on and burn some of this blubber off, but I dont have time (and yes, I can hear you saying 'you have time to blog.... half an hour before work? you should be doing it now' but then I'd only be sweaty for work. And I'm too tired right now).

I have 11 days left to get this assignment finished. I am making progress, but it feel like very slow progress.

Since my last post I have managed to sort out the demo shopping cart. What a nightmare that was... until I twigged the one simple thing I had overlooked and then it was a breeze. Typical, right? The Form Page was giving me similar grief and it took a day to figure that out. It still needs some tweeking, but the pressure is off with that one for now.

But - once again - I am stuck on the next bit, although I never kidded myself for a second that this would be an easy bit. This is the wishlist page. Here I have to read the cookie set on the index page and display it here. That bit was easy enough.... the tricky bit is getting it to display not as just lines of text lising out the names of the products, but to display a photograph of it and a link to the product page too. Hummmmm..... this is going to require some serious back-reading of materials and some indepth on-line research for me.

I took yesterday off from my college work. I feel burned out. The weather outside is amazing, like summer already, and I want to be out in it. Not stuck in here working.

And to add to the pressure, 2 days ago the gubbins arrived for the NEXT class! Which starts in 16 days. It came with a list of submission dates too. Again, there are three mini assignments and 1 biggie. The 3rd mini assignment is due on my wedding day! The biggie is due the week after my honeymoon. GREAT. And there dosn't look to be any text books for this one, so I have to work at their pace, not my own,

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…
