Weekend Away

Another one... My poor little car isn't used to making 300 mile round trips every few weeks! And neither am I! Yorkie's lucky, he gets to sleep in the car being a non-driver. Me? Well, I have to cope with winds and rain lashing the car and getting bounced around in general by the weather in what is suposed to be a city car.

It's shattering!

But still, it has to be done so I do it, and I do like going to visit his family (soon to be my in-laws).

Jenny is on a well deserved holiday after her exams so we stayed at Kates this time. She's looking after Jenny's cat as well as her own two, and poor Olly was a bit shy - until he recognised us and have us a friendly laserating...

We mainly went over so that Yorkie could try on the jacket Kate is making him for the wedding. The bodice is well on the way, and the jacket skirt and sleaves were pinned on while he wore it to get it right.

It looks great! It's a brilliant shape for him, showing off how broad his shoulders are and bringing him in at the wasit. Very flattering indeed! I can't wait to see it finished.

We're off down again in two weeks for another fitting for him.

It was very sad to hear from Dad that none of my family aside from him and my mother will be coming to the wedding. I know this is because Nan is very sick in hospital, but I can't help but feel that they wouldn't have come anyway, unless some one came to bring Nan. I don't know any of my family on my dad' side apart from Nan and without her I know I'll never see or hear from them again. Mum's an only child and has next to no family either... My side of the wedding will be empty.

This is why I am thrilled that Yorkie is speaking to his Dad again. We nipped in for an hour yesterday and dropped off a wedding invite for them. There's a chance they wont come, but these are good steps to having them included in our lives, and the lives of our children. I don't want them to miss out on having a family like me. It's cruel to make a child suffer because a person doesn't get on with thier parents.

I'm working this afternoon, and tomorrow I am off to do the dress shop for Jacquie and her daughters... Hopefully on Wednesday I'll be able to get some college work done. And maybe find some time to SLEEP!

I can't believe it's coming up so fast! Pay no mind to the family that wouldn't come. While it is nice to have a pile of people show up it is better to have those that matter. I think I knew something like 40% of the people at my wedding.

Good luck on the sleep......if you find any to spare just toss it in the post would you please?

I know! It's all a bit scary and grown up!

Got an RSVP off someone today... don't know who they are. I blame Mum.

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!
