Dedicated to the one I love

Tonight is Fran's 40th birthday party, something which we are both looking forward to! Today, however, has been set aside for a day of shopping. Something which we both dislike emensly!

In order to avoid the Saturday morning rush we set of to Asda early. It seems to have worked too! Sure, there were people there, but not the maddening crushing crowd we usually have to face after work or on a Sat afternoon.

As we walked in Yorkie asks if I have anything to wear for the party tonight. I say that I do have that massive purple top I bought for Becy's leaving do from work and that would do, but he offered to buy me something else if I wanted it. Offered 2 and 3 times! So I had a look round and found a lovely black top with a few sequins and beads on which would both be pretty and servicable as a maternity top! Hooray!

We lauged and giggled our way round the supermarket - mostly at Yorkie's inability to find anything to fit him (all hats are too small, even XXLs, the only trousers he could find either fit in the waist but not the leg, or the leg but not the waist, the the vast array of underpants and boxers on offer just confused him until he claimed it was all too much and walked away, leaving me and the other chap browsing the section in fits of laughter).

With the food shop done and me in the que for the checkout he dashes off to pick up the tin foil we'd forgotten to grab, and returns with a choccy Pirates of the Carribean advent calender for me! Which he soon added to with a copy of the latest Pirates movie!

On the way out the car park he asks to go to Matalan - just for a quick in and out visit - to see if he can find any work trousers, so we bob in there too for a bit. And along with some properly fitting work stuff for him (and a wonderfully festive 'who ate all the pies' t-shirt for himself) he opts to treat me AGAIN with another frock and leggings for me and the bump to wear, and a huge silver and grey snuggle cardy for me to wear over Christmas - in a 20-22 so there's room to expand !



At home he puts all the shopping away by himself while I have a bath, then serves me lunch and cuddles up to me while we watch my new movie, periodically bringing me strawberry milkshakes and other yummy tit-bits.

I have NO IDEA what I have done to deserve this wonderful treatment (although I suspect it has more than a little something to do with the little one I am carrying around inside of me) but I am enjoying every last moment of it while it lasts.

So thank you, oh wonderful husband of mine, for making me feel special and beautiful, regardles of the fact that my body is swelling at an alarming rate, my skin in dry and flaking off, and my hair is lank (basically, while I enjoy being pregnant, I am hardly 'glowing' and my physical appearence is not good!). Thank you for taking care of me and making my life that bit easier and nicer.

Thank you for being you!

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!
