Over tired and hyped!

It's been another one of thse LONG days! Yup, a 5am-er..... Finally made it home at just gone 8.15pm....

I can't keep doing this!

Although, today, I feel strangly good. Possibly because I have achived a lot, or maybe because I have got not just my second wind, but have passed through that into hyper-mad-bunny-mode.

I suspect the latter.

The weather's been horrible. And driven about 300 miles just today. I tired to inspect a site in Dewsbury that wasn't ours (easy mistake to make, two nursaries next door to each other, I walked into the wrong one thinking they were one and the same). I have interviewed - at very short notice - and hired a new cleaner for one of our problems sites, then trained her (and she's good too!). Former problem cleaners (at the same site) are now doing a cracking job thanks to my input - and they seem to like me still. I just hope they carry on doing well when I'm not there to watch over them.

I also called in on mum for a couple of hours on the way past and had tea and quiche, which kept me going for the rest of the day.

I managed to get the van back to work just before it ran out of diesel (well, if they will send me off with less than a full tank and no expenses card...). Running on fumes for the last 5 or so miles, fule light blinking away. Oh well.... I left a note. And the office is right next door to a Shall Station. At least they wont have to push it far if it's that empty!

Hee hee!

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…

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
