It's my BIRTHDAY!

Argh! Another year had slipped by. Where does the time go?

So this is my first birthday as a married woman!

And it's not felt that much different, aside from the lack of booze... although the last two years were pretty dry too as they the both the day before other peoples wedding and turning up still half cut or hung over was not really acceptable.

Mum came over for the day as Yorkie was working and we sat and gossiped and watched the most recent movie version of Pride and Prejudice on Sky (which we both agreed is still not a patch on the BBC drama of a few years ago with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy... phwaaa!) , but she left just before I went to pick Yorkie up form work.

Instead of the pub this year Yorkie took me to the cinema, a rare treat in itself for us these days (i.e. since we started to spend most of our money on DVDs, which are cheaper than a trip to the movies and you can have a pee without missing the best bits).

We went to see the Bourne Ultimatum with Ray & Sarah and Jen (who looks MASSIVE now with just 3 weeks to go before Conner is born... it almost looks unnatural, and more than just a little scary! She's still gorgeous though!). And - aside from Ray - we all loved it!

There are a couple of the fight scenes which I think will actually look better on the telly than the big screen, the camera work is all 'zip zip zip' which does add to the mood, but when it's taking up the whole of your vision you end up wondering what part of the screen your supposed to be looking at, what's going on, and why are my eyes hurting! And Matt himself looks a little porky round the chops in a couple of scenes (but Bourne has been on the run for 3 years, healthy eating may not be a viable option!).

Great movie though, and if you like the first two you'll love this one too. Think we'll be buying the box set at some point!

I got some lovely prezzies and some nice cards which are brightening up my front room as I type and had a really nice day.

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
