What's in a name?

So, at a loose end this morning before I set off to work I thought I'd look up a new image for my avatar to use from one month after the wedding (when everyone else will be sick of seeing wedding photos all the time).

I thought I'd look up the word 'chig' as this has been my family nick name since forever.

I found this: Link

It seems that I am some kind of nasty space monster from a show called Space Above and Beyond. I'm not so sure that I am happy about this!

So I searched for 'chiggster' instead which - thankfully - comes up with loads of stuff that is actually mine! Flickr photos, blog memberships etc. So I felt happy with that.

HOWEVER!

Something I did see was a word 'chigger' which is something I have been called by 'mistake' when people found chiggster difficult. And I must warn you all now, if you are eating, don't go any further down this page!

These 'orrible little buggers share my name! I am HORRIFIED! I actually feel a little sick at the thought of it.

And I am starting to wonder about how I got this nickname after all. I was under the impression it was an affectionate name gifted to me by my dear old dad. Maybe (subconsciously?) he always has thought of me as a little monster!!!

I think I shall be having words!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
