Goodbye Nan

Short post.

I got a phone call from my Dad yesterday morning, just as I was getting ready for work. As soon as he said hello I knew what had happened.

Nan died yesterday morning.

She'd come home from the hospital last weekend - they could no nothing more for her and she hated being there - so she was happy at home and she wasn't alone. Anne and her kids are staying there, and I would imagine that Brenda may have been there too. And of course her beloved dachshund too (named Bruce Willis.... My Nan's great!) so I guess if there are good ways 'to go' she got one.

I'm not up to posting a lot about this just yet. Maybe later, maybe not at all. In the meantime, I'll just share a photo of this wonderful woman I love and will miss forever.

Sorry for your loss and though it may seem hollow, know that her suffering is over and that she died at home like she wanted. My Nan passed in the spring so I understand the heartache that goes along with it all.

Thanks guys. Have been avoiding moaping about, and having a laugh about what she did / was like instead. Sad thing now is... looks like I'll miss the funeral. The crem' has a BACKLOG and it might not happen until I'm away on honeymoon.

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…
