Another weekend away!

I'm starting to get used to this! But I am still so tired it's painful!

We stayed at Kates again this weekend. We got to se the jacket again which is coming on in leaps and bounds! The sleaves are tacked on and the front of the lappels are on (she did tell me the proper name, but I forgot it) and the breast pocket is done! The skirt and fake pocket flaps are to go on next I think. Yorkie still looks bloody good in it too!

We had a nice time again, Rachel and her brood were over on Saturday so we got to see the kiddies and had a BBQ in the back garden. Saturday night we played 'dirty minds' which is such a funny game! I'm going to HAVE to get a box of that for nights in with friends! And I managed to consume a whole bottle of Pinot Grigio all to myself... which I loved doing but isn't something I should brag about! (Not my fault that the glass was topped up everytime I turned my head, hee hee hee, not that I am complaining at all!)

Sunday was chilled out, relaxing reading and chatting and surfing eBay for books we used to read as kids. Kate cooked us Sunday Lunch which was a fabby-dabby-tasty Pork, Roasties n Veg (YUM), and then we drove home, taking the back roads for a change and managing not to get lost!

I can forget about weekends at home for a while now. Next weekend is his stag do so he'll be away and as I hate being home alone I'll spend at least one night at Mums, weekend after we're back down to Kate's, then it's my hen do in Blackpool the weekend after... and then it's the wedding! And then the honeymoon! So that's two more weekends away, And after that is my stepdad's 60th birthday do at my Mums place!

I should get to slob about my own place for a weekend in about... August!

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…
