Lazy week

We've been having a very lazy time of it for the last few days. Well, we've been to town to I can do some of that name changing business, and we've done some washing and cooking and a little bit of tidying and stuff.... but really, not much else.

We thought about starting on 'doing up the house' and got as far as buying picture hooks in Wilkos, and bumping into Olly on B&Q and having a gossip with him rather than buy anything....

The theory IS that we wait for the wedding gift cheques to clear (which wont be until the end of the month, cursed non-checque-clearing-bank-building-socitiy) and then once we have all of that we can totter off to Ikea with cash and cards, find out how much we have on the gift cards (not all had the amounts displayed) and see if we can put the whole lot on a single card.

Yorkie reccons we are not likely to miss one card in many getting lost, but that we would miss a single card if it's the only one. I think he means it's easy to keep track of a single card therefore making sure it wont get lost, because the idea of losing one card with all the wedding presents on scares me to death!

Other than that we have been spending the week killing mosters and assorted bad guys on Guild Wars - which is something we haven't done for MONTHS because with sorting the wedding out we never seemed to have the time for much else, and a lot of stuff had to go on hold. And now we can have it back! Woot!

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…
